News and Announcements
Hello Parents and Students,
Camp Arroyo is rapidly approaching and I have had some question asked that I thought you may all like to know the answers to.
When will my child know who will be in their cabin?
It will not be announced until we arrive at camp who will be cabin groups together and who will be in adventure groups together. Students were given request sheets a few months ago and listed in order the students they would like to request be in their cabin. Students will have at least one, most times two, and sometimes more of those students in their cabin.
Students will have plenty of opportunities to see their other friends during adventure groups, and rec times.
Do I drop my child off, like a normal school day, or may I stay to see them off to camp?
On the day we leave, we will not be boarding busses until 9:55. Drop students off with their bags. They can carry their own bags to the drop off location outside their classroom.
If you would like to return to see the busses off, you may return.
Can I take my student home right after they return from camp or do they need to stay for the remainder of the school day?
On the day we return from camp we will be returning at approximately 12:00 - 12:15, if parents would like to come pick their students up when arrive back to school, they may do so. There will be a sign out table outside the library.
Students who cannot be picked up at that time will go to eat their lunch and return to class for the rest of the day.
Does my child need to bring their backpack to school on Tuesday?
No. Students should not bring their school backpacks to school, unless those are the backpacks they will be using at camp, and they completely empty ALL school supplies from the backpack and pockets. They will not want to carry the extra weight.
My child takes medication. When do I drop that off at school?
Medication will only be distributed at camp with a signed doctor consent. If you turned in your consent form, please bring your child's medication to the office by Friday morning. Our school nurse will check in the medications and release them to the teachers.
If your child has their medication at school...Inhaler, Epipen...etc. You can let the office know you want that medication pulled to bring with them so you don't need to get another device for the trip. We will bring it back and keep it at school upon our return.
Please do not send Tylenol. If your child gets a fever we will be calling you to come and take them home.
I am a chaperone. When do I turn in my medical forms?
Chaperone's will bring their own medical forms to camp with them. They will be collected once there.
How can I write my child when at camp?
We are at camp for such a short period of time, mail might miss us. You may send pre-written letters with your child to open each day while at camp, or you can send letters for me to hand out to your child each day. It is your choice.
Let me know if you have any more questions and I will be sure to share with the group.
Mrs. Del Sesto
