16 Other Important Information Snack timeWe have a 15 minute snack break every morning at 10:00. Please provide your child with a healthy snack each day. Water only for drinks, please. Our lunch time is not until 1:15 P.M. It is a very long morning and we are all working hard!BedtimePlease be sure that your child gets to bed early each night. Children of this age group require about 10 hours of sleep. A regular bedtime is a good habit that will demonstrate to your child that school is important! BreakfastStarting off the day with a healthy breakfast is another way to ensure your child’s success in school. They will feel more energized and ready to face the day with a full stomach.Room TemperatureThe temperature in our room tends to fluctuate. If a student is cold, they must wear the School Lane uniform sweater over their uniform shirt. Students may not wear a non-uniform sweater or sweatshirt. They may wear a long sleeve shirt under the uniform shirt.Other Important Information
17 Dress CodeOn gym days, students must wear gray or black shorts or sweatpants (do not have to have SLCS logo).Students need to wear a SLCS logo t-shirt or sweatshirt.Students also need to wear sneakers.On any day, if a student does not follow dress code regulations, they will be sent to the office to call home for a change of clothing.
18 Friday FolderEvery Friday this folder will come home with your student with the items I have graded that week. Please take the graded work and keep it with you unless otherwise indicated or you have a question about something. Then sign and date the sheet and return it with the folder Monday. If you do have a question or comment about a piece of work please write the question or comment in the space provided and send the piece back so I can take a look. Thanks!My goal is to hand back work quickly but there may be times when I am unable to send the folder on Friday—if this happens I will send a notice home in your student’s planner. I will then send the folders home Monday.
19 Homework PolicySpelling and Math homework will be checked daily for completionIf a student is missing homework they will fill out a homework excuse slip that will be signed by the student, teacher and parent
