Bowen’s Weekly Family Update
November 9, 2018

Dear Bowen Families,
Thank you for your generous donations over the past week.  As a community, we donated more than $950.00 to UNICEF, and we are still counting recent donations. We also donated 154 pounds of candy to the U.S. troops.  This a great reflection of our school community that we celebrated today in a school-wide comfy/pajama day. Veterans’ Day will be observed this weekend, so there will be no school on Monday.  Enjoy the long, and hopefully restful, weekend.  Thank you for all that you do to support our community.  See you on Tuesday!   
Yours truly,

Weekly News
Student Attendance
Students are able to do their best learning when they are here at school on a consistent basis.  It is every family’s responsibility to ensure that their child attends school every day on time and ready to learn.  If a student is absent from school, families must contact the school (Safe Call Back telephone line 617 559-9350).  It is suggested that you speak with your child’s pediatrician if your child is ill for more than three days.  It is also recommended to plan travel during school vacation, however, if that is unavoidable, please notify the teacher and office in advance.
Students who are absent or tardy for more than 10 days will receive a letter from the principal.  Families whose child has more than 15 days absent or tardy from school will meet with the principal and other staff to discuss creating an attendance plan.  If attendance is identified as a chronic issue, we will work with the district's Attendance Officer to address our concerns.

Parking Reminder
Please follow the parking restrictions around our school in order to avoid a ticket.  This includes the Blue Zone and restricted spots in the school driveway.  There is no parking in the Blue Zone during drop off and pick up.  There is also no parking in the restricted areas of the school driveway, unless you have a disabilities license plate or placard.
