Classroom Policies

Ms. McQueen’s Classroom Info:

Communication- Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns. E-mail is the best way to reach me. Our mornings are very hectic so coming in with your child to speak with me is not the best time for the students or me; however, I am usually available after school. I will send out a weekly email updating you on what will be happening in our classroom for the week.

E-mail: [email protected]

 

Birthdays-I will recognize each child’s birthday during the school year with a special birthday surprise. If you would like to provide a birthday surprise for your child and his/her classmates, birthday surprises need to be non-food items; i.e. pencils, stickers, etc. (See Student Handbook)


Snacks- We will have time for TWO small snacks during our day. Please provide a healthy snack for your child. We do a lot of learning in second grade, so a healthy snack is needed fuel! Since our carpets are brand new, we are asking that you limit snacks to dry, easy to eat items. Please refrain from sending in snacks that require a spoon or could spill/stain the carpet. Thanks for your help in keeping our school looking great!

Toys-Toys can be a real distraction and interfere with learning. Please do not allow your child to bring toys to school. It is okay for your child to bring in balls to play with during second recess only.

Water Bottle- Your child will need to bring in a water bottle to school everyday. Please have your child fill their water bottle from home to start their day. Please clearly label the bottle with your child’s name. ONLY WATER IS ALLOWED!

Book Orders-I will be sending home Scholastic book orders throughout the year. In addition to the order form that will come home with your child, I have a classroom account online. Our classroom receives points towards FREE books every time an order is placed. Our classroom code is: MFQ7B

NOTICE OF DESTRUCTION OF SPECIAL EDUCATION RECORDS

Special Education records which have been collected by Douglas County School District related to the identification, evaluation, educational placement, or the provision of special education in the district, must be maintained under state and federal laws for the period of five (5) years after special education services have ended for the student. Special education services end when the student is no longer eligible for services, graduates, or completes his/her educational program at age 21, or moves from the district. This notification is to inform parents/guardians and former students of Douglas County School District's intent to destroy the special education records of students who exited special education services as of June 30, 2016. These records will be destroyed in accordance with state law unless the parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student notifies the school district otherwise. After five years, the records are no longer useful to the district, but may be useful to the parent/guardian or former student in applying for social security benefits, rehabilitation services, college entrance, etc. The parent/guardian or eligible (adult) student may request a copy of the records by requesting the records by email to [email protected]
