"Give a Can if You Can" Food Drive


Parents and Guardians,
Thank you to everyone who was able to donate food during our "Give a Can if You Can" food drive. We are able to make a sizable donation to the Women's Center of Beaver County, who provides a vital service in our community. They were very appreciative and grateful for the donation and it was all possible thanks to wonderful families like you. Thank you for helping us to teach and show our students the many ways we can show kindness.  
Sincerely,
Andrew Staszewski
School Counselor

Reminder about COVID Procedures

From the Office:
Parents & Guardians, please wear face coverings during arrival and dismissal. The PA Dept of Health Order includes outdoor spaces, when distancing may not be able to be maintained.  Staff may ask for you to slide your mask down, so we can identify you before releasing your child.

From the Health Office:
Please monitor your child/children for symptoms of covid prior to coming to school every day.  The list of symptoms were sent home on the first day in the health packet and are linked below. If your child has any of these symptoms, do not send them to school until discussing this with the nurse. Siblings who do not have symptoms but live in the same house must also stay home. All students who have symptoms must be cleared by a doctor before returning.

Also, please note that all students must be wearing a mask before getting on a bus. It is a good idea to keep several spare masks in your child's backpack.

Please note changes to our protocol for absences due to illness. All symptoms, no matter how mild, are required to be treated as potential COVID. Please call the PCP and take their direction, you may be asked to complete either a COVID test or quarantine for 10 days. We do not accept a RAPID COVID test, only PCR tests.

Possible Symptoms, any ONE of these

Stomach ache 

Vomiting 

Fatigue

Diarrhea 

Runny/stuffy nose 

Achiness

Sore Throat 

Cough 

Chills

Fever 

Headache 

Loss of taste or smell


If a COVID test is ordered for anyone in the household, all siblings in the household must be kept home from school until the pending PCR COVID test result has been returned. 

Please notify the school nurses with any concerns or questions or to discuss your child's illness and/or isolation or quarantine timeline.

Thank You to Our Community Supporters!

7-Eleven
Thanks to a generous grant from our local 7-Eleven, we were able to purchase character education and behavior intervention materials.  The Social Thinking curriculum will be used with all of our Kindergarten Students.  Additional Social Thinking and Flexible Thinking materials will be used in small group interventions, K-2.

Buddy Bench
Thanks to PTO and College Square parent leadership and generous financial support from community business and private family donations, we have been able to purchase a replacement Buddy Bench for our playground!  To foster friendship and communication skills, students who need a friend to play with on the playground can sit on the Buddy Bench.  Peers are quick to invite them to play with them.
 
The project was funded by almost 20 small businesses and friends and families of the school.  Our appreciation to Keystone Ridge Designs in Butler, PA, for providing the bench at a reduced price to help to support this project at our school!
