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. Also, 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, cakes, candy, pickles, drinks, or sugary items for snack. Some healthy and appropriate items are:


peanut butter crackers, animal crackers, chips, cheese, pretzels, popcorn, granola bars, Cuties (tangerines), grapes, carrot sticks, bananas, & apples

Our bodies react to what we feed it, so we want to promote learning by feeding our brains and bodies nutritional foods.


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 every day. In addition to the folder, I can also be reached at 662.393.2919 and Jessica.hurdle@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 “Jessica Hurdle”. There you can find up to date information about our class and upcoming events. I send home a newsletter every week and will also post it to my site. REMIND is an additional form of communication. Please sign up for text alerts from me by texting: @msjhurdle to: 81010.

 

Sending in Money/ Notes

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

Homework

Homework will be sent home in the beginning of the week and due back on Friday, if assigned. Your child should be able to complete the homework independently. Start dates have not been determined. I will announce the start date on the weekly newsletter. Homework is not graded or enforced, but simply used as extra practice.

Birthdays

I strongly encourage you to come and eat lunch with your child on their birthday. Cupcakes are allowed, but I ask that you only send the mini cupcakes.
