Please confirm you have viewed this weeks eThursday Envelope.

eThursday Envelopes

The eThursday Envelope is a way to help the school save money, help the environment and save you time! It’s simple. It’s the on-line version of our “paper” Thursday Envelope. You receive an email Thursday when the eThursday Envelope is ready to be viewed—you simply click the link in the email and all of that week’s flyers and notes are available to you on-line! Note: confidential information is never posted on eThursday & items like that and a few other things will still come home in your “paper” Thursday Envelope.

Each family will still receive a paper Thursday Family Envelope because there’s a chance something needs to be sent home as “hard copies” every now and then, and confidential information is never posted on eThursday. PLEASE be sure this paper envelope is returned to the office NO LATER THAN THE FOLLOWING TUESDAY when it does come home, WITH THE CHILD WHO BROUGHT IT HOME (not a sibling in a different classroom). Envelopes are generally sent with the Oldest or Only child in the family.
