READ ACROSS AMERICA
Although Read Across America is a year-round event, there is often a larger celebration during the first week of March.
In collaboration with staff members in our school and district, below is a resource available for you to celebrate Read Across America. This PRESENTATION has South School and district staff members engaging in diverse read-alouds for your children to enjoy. This is also an opportunity for students to meet some South School staff members that they might not have had the chance to meet yet this year. *To access the read-alouds, click on the book covers.*

Please see below for a few safety reminders.
-If you use the carline for arrival, please wait until your car pulls up to a staff member to have your child exit the car.
-If you use the carline, DO NOT cut in front of cars that are already in the carline. Our carline proceeds east on MADISON and turns right on LINDEN. Please be courteous to others by joining the carline on Madison, NOT Harbor or Randolph.
-If you use the carline for arrival or dismissal, please respect our neighbors by not blocking driveways on Madison Ave.
-We’ve seen a slight increase in the number of students arriving without their “Temp and Symptom-Free” stickers. Please remember that students should have their symptom-check sticker on their outer layer so that staff members can check this upon arrival.
