First Day of School & Staggered Start Information

Dear Latham Students and Parents,

We are very excited for students to return in a couple weeks. The official start date is Wednesday, September 6. Latham will have a staggered start for students in grades K-3. The plan for the staggered start is as follows:

Kindergarten through 3rd grades will have a staggered start on either Wednesday or Thursday the first week of school. K-3 students will attend either Wednesday (9/6) OR Thursday, (9/7). ALL students will attend on Friday (9/8).

4th and 5th grades will begin Wednesday (9/6). They will NOT have a staggered start.

All registered students as of Monday, August 20th, will receive letters in the mail letting K-3rd grade families know which day their student will start.

***Kindergarteners will go half day from 9/6-9/22. Monday, September 25th is when they will begin attending full days.
Half Day Kinders Only Monday – Friday (September 6th – 22nd)

School Supplies

Dear Parents,

We request that parents allow us to provide supplies to your child through their classroom teacher. These materials include regular school supplies as well as the curricula consumable materials used in special classroom projects and art projects throughout the school year that are not available for you to purchase on your own.

All classroom supplies are put in community boxes to be shared. This way we avoid the upset child whose personal crayons, etc. come up missing. (For parents who enjoy the supply shopping with their child, we encourage you to set up a homework center with all the special, fun items you purchase together.)

We would like all families to participate in our program so that each child can access all the needed materials to make their school experience a great success!

The cost per classroom is as follows:
• K-4 grades $25 per student

• 5th grade $30 per student*
* Note: This amount includes a binder and student planner.

Payment is due by September 15th. Checks can be made payable to Latham Student Body.

Just a reminder, if you have an incoming Kindergarten student they will attend school on a half day basis through Sept. 22, 2017. On Sept. 25, 2017 they will switch to full days.

Thank you for your support of Latham School!
