Westminster Family Connection - March 2022
Green paint was everywhere, green paper was running low, more and more students were wearing green clothes...St. Patrick’s Day was coming! This year on St. Patrick’s Day, we had a school assembly in the sanctuary where Mrs. Hassen played jigs on her violin and students danced with their hands at their sides like Irish Dancers! The rest of the day was filled with excited cries of discovery as students found leprechauns hiding in the hallways!
Music Week Postponed! Music Week, scheduled for next week, will be postponed for later in the year. We hope to be able to welcome people in our sanctuary at a later date to show the students a variety of instruments. Please let the office know if you play or have an instrument you could share with us!
Masks Current COVID dashboard numbers from the schools do not yet offer a clear picture of what effects the removal of masks has had on positive COVID cases. Additionally, the Union County Office of Health Management continues to express concern about unvaccinated students not wearing masks given the high rate of transmissibility of the current and newer variants. For these reasons, Westminster’s policy recommending masks for our students and staff remains in place. Please know we are monitoring the situation closely and you will be notified of any changes.
Registration and Parent Packets If you know of anyone looking for a nursery school for next year, please let them know registration is ongoing. For those of you already registered, your Parent Packets are coming! The office is revising the packets so there is more information in the Parent Handbook and fewer papers to sign.
Early Drop Off and Extended Day Early drop off is available daily at 8:30am for $5. There is no need for advance notice. Extended day for 3s and 4’s is for $30. Please let the office know in advance if you would like your child to stay. 4’s Enrichment is available on Tuesdays and Thursdays only.
