Family and Friends,

Welcome back from break and into 2022.  We are delighted to start second semester and the New Year. Once again, we are so grateful for all our students, parents, and staff. We truly hope that everyone had a safe and relaxing winter vacation.

Our Birthday Month

It’s birthday time at Stewart!  Our school will celebrate our 62nd birthday on January 18th.  We’ll enjoy birthday cupcakes provided by our PTA Volunteers and celebrate another year of educating kids.

 Inclement Weather Procedures

Salina USD 305 may close school due to extreme weather. The superintendent of schools will make the decision after consulting with the bus company and the director of maintenance and operations. School closures or delayed starts will be made by 5:00 am.

 Time to Restock School Supplies

It is a perfect time of year to check your child’s school supplies. Donations of items such as pencils, glue sticks, dry erase markers, crayons and tissues are always greatly appreciated! As part of our school supply list, we also asked for sturdy headphones clearly labeled with your child’s name.

 Stay Healthy

This is the time of year when illnesses are more prevalent in school, including influenza, gastrointestinal illness (stomach bug), the common cold and of course covid. Please refer to our district website for information regarding illnesses and symptoms.

Reminders to wash hands often, practice social distance or wear a mask when unable to maintain distance, and maintain a healthy diet. All are important practices to keep ourselves healthy during this season.

Blessings to your family

We would like to wish everyone a safe, happy, and healthy New Year! We look forward to the start of the 2022 year!

As always, if you have any specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the Stewart office.

DeAnna Carpenter, Grace E. Stewart Principal
