Message from the Principal:
Hello Parents & Happy New Year!
We can’t wait to spend 2019 with you and your children. Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month to My Sisters House. Your generosity helped to provide necessities and Christmas Gifts to woman and children who are victims of domestic violence. You are truly appreciated!
I would like to personally thank each one of you on behalf of myself and the entire Chesterbrook Team for every well wish, wonderful note, card, food (yummm!) gift, etc. You always let us know how much you appreciate us and we are truly thankful for that.
Please join us in the lobby on January 11th from 7am-8am for coffee and breakfast treats. Our entire administrative team will be available to answer any questions you may have about the upcoming months. This is also a great opportunity to get to know other parents. Hope to see you there!

I’m looking for 1 or 2 parents who would be willing to be a parent ambassador for new families who are inquiring about our program. The ambassador would serve as a partner with the Admin team would be available either by phone or email in your spare time to answer questions that a new family may have to assist us with securing and building the enrollment at the school. Yes, there will be an incentive for your partnership :). Please let Mrs. Andrea know if you’re interested.
Links 2 Learning Monthly Folders
Each month our teachers prepare folders that outline what your child has learned in the prior month. These folders have work samples in them and explain the skills that your child is working to master. We send these home at the end of each month and ask that they be returned a few days later. Please let us know if you have any questions about the monthly folders or about your child’s progress!
Our parents are vital partners in helping us to maintain a safe and healthy environment for the students in our school. The most important thing you can do to assist us in creating a healthy environment is to keep your child home if they are ill. This reduces the spread of illness and allows your child to fully recuperate. Children may not attend school until they have been symptom free for 24 hours if they display any of the following:
• Fever of 100 degrees of more—must be fever free for 24 hours with no fever-reducing medicine before returning to school
• Vomiting, diarrhea or stomach upset
• Heavy nasal discharge requiring wiping every 30 minutes
• Persistent, non-productive or barking cough
• Sore throat
• Skin rash,
• Head lice
• Symptoms of a communicable disease
• Fussy, cranky behavior unlike child’s normal demeanor that may indicate illness
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
• Due on Mondays, ACH pulls on Tuesday. Late fees applied on Wednesday
• Tuition is still billed even if you’re away for vacation. Please see parent handbook and let the admin team now if you need help accessing the parent portal
