Class Information

Class Information  

Breakfast/ Lunch/ Snack

Breakfast- Is served each day in the cafeteria. If you want your child to eat breakfast, they will need to go to the cafeteria before coming to class each day. If you qualify for free/ reduced lunch, you will also qualify for breakfast as well. The cost for breakfast is $1.25 and $.30 for reduced. The start date for breakfast has not been determined. Look for a start date on your child’s weekly newsletter.

Lunch- Lunch is $2.75 and $.40 for reduced. Please be sure your child has money on their account. The cafeteria will not charge lunch. If you choose to send a lunch from home.  I ask that you do NOT send any sodas or sugary foods. I strongly encourage water bottles only, especially in the summer months. You can add money to your child’s account by going to www.mypaymentsplus.com and you can also download a smartphone app “My Payments Plus” to add money and monitor your child’s account from your phone.

Free and reduced can also be applied for online: www.schoollunchapp.com  THIS METHOD IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED AND IT IS ALSO THE FASTEST. 

Snack- Snack is not provided and must be sent everyday. I ask that you do NOT send any hot chips, candy, pickles, drinks, or sugary items for snack. 

Sending in Money/ Notes

Money is to be labeled with your child’s name, amount, and what it is for. It is to be sent in the front pouch outside of your child’s folder.

Communication

Your child’s folder will be checked each morning when they arrive at school. It is imperative that you also check and sign your child’s folder when they come home everyday. In addition to the folder, I can also be reached at 662.393.2919 and amanda.whittington@dcsms.org. You can also stay up to date with my teacher website at hse.desotocountyschools.org. Go to the “teacher websites” link and there you will click on my name Amanda Whittington. There you can find up to date information about our class and upcoming events. I will post our weekly newsletter to my site every week.

Homework

Homework will be sent home in the beginning of the week and due back on Friday. Your child should be able to complete the homework independently with guidance. Start dates have not been determined. I will announce the start date on the weekly newsletter.

Birthdays

I encourage you to come and eat lunch with your child on their birthday. Cupcakes are allowed, but they must be store bought.

                                                                    Change of Clothes

We have numerous bathroom breaks throughout the day, but sometimes in kindergarten accidents do happen. Put a Ziploc bag labeled with your child’s name and a change of clothes in your child's backpack. This change of clothes will stay in your child’s backpack. Please make sure the clothes are appropriate for the current season. Items to be considered are: underwear, socks, shirt, and pants. If your child ever uses this emergency set of clothes, please replace the contents.
