Our first day of school was a shining success despite our cloudy weather. Our day started the minute students stepped off the bus and continued on throughout the day until students stepped back onto the bus heading for home. It was great to see parents and students walking up to school with happy smiles and arms bursting with “back to school” classroom items. I was able to visit most classrooms on the first day of school and students appeared relaxed, comfortable, and ready to begin the school year. I also had a chance to visit the cafeteria and enjoyed observing students reconnecting with old friends and making new ones. Everyone at Fox Hill School is making a special effort to ensure our friends from new school districts feel welcome and comfortable at Fox Hill School, and so far we are off to a great start. Please be sure to talk to your child about their first day of school, and I hope it was as wonderful for them as it was for us.
I want to bring to parent’s attention that Fox Hill School’s bus numbers are changed for the 2011-2012 school year as published in the town newspaper. Bus numbers assigned to Fox Hill School for this school year are Bus # 1, #2, #5, #6, #7, #8 and #12 only. Please double check your street address to find out your new bus number and make sure your child knows their new bus number. Teachers will be checking in with their students to be sure they know their new bus number to ensure all students are placed on the correct bus. If parents have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher or call the main office between 9:30 am- 11:00 am. The bus numbers with street addresses are provided for parents in the “Bus Schedules” blog page above. Also, new bus routes with new bus numbers are posted on the Fox Hill School website. Please take some time to double check your new bus number and your new bus stop and discuss this with your child. Thank you, and I look forward to a great school year.
