Thank you for all your flexibility with the "circuit breaker" arrangements. Our plan is to err on the side of caution and keep visitors off for the week unless advised otherwise. We will resume Parent Storytellers and other school events next week.
Again, I must thank our parent community for your kind understanding and support during this time to ensure the safety of our community.
The ESF App team has been making some changes to the ‘Absence’ & ‘Bus Change’ forms on the App. We would like to bring your attention to the changes on the Bus Change Form. There are three pre-populated options, please edit/ delete as necessary. This is very important so we can ensure we make the correct arrangements for your child at going home time.
Your child [class] will be:
A walker home
Will not take the school bus to school, but WILL TAKE the bus home.
Not take the bus at all.

[Recording] Parent Hacks Session 3: Fussy Eaters & Speech Development
Thank you to Joice Almeida, for facilitating this important topic for us. In this session, Joice shared her strategies for coping with fussy eaters and how this impacts their speech development. We had lots of very relevant and important Q&A at the end of the session, we hope you found it helpful. If you're interested in a free speech screening or a feeding screening ($300), please contact your class teacher for more information.
The upcoming K2 Parent-Teacher Conferences is available for sign-up in phases, and it's now open for you. Please make an appointment via the app at your earliest convenience to secure a time to meet with your child's teacher.
Please note classes will continue as per usual throughout the PTC weeks. The appointments are about 10-15 minutes long for each child. Please appreciate that these are the dates when we have arranged cover for teachers and we would like to keep to them as much as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us on 2540-0066.
