Important Parent Information

  • Absences

    If your child is going to be absent, please call the Safe Arrival number: (610) 525-0594. When your child returns, please send in a yellow excused absence card or note explaining absence or the absence will be considered unexcused. Official Absence Excuse Card

    Birthday Parties

    We love to celebrate birthdays at Ithan, but we celebrate in unique ways in each classroom. We request that you do not send birthday treats to class with your child. Instead we will honor your child's special day in other ways that will be both lasting and memorable!

    For birthday parties outside of school, please do not send in the invitations with your child to school. We ask that parents mail the invitations to each child's home. Addresses for the students in our class can be found in the Membership ToolKit online student directory. For electronic invitations, parent email addresses can also be found in the Membership ToolKit online directory.

    Daily Snack Time

    Please send in a healthy NUT-FREE snack each day for your child for the afternoon. Be aware that there are food allergies in our classroom. Please make sure your child's name is on the snack, if possible, to avoid any confusion.


    Please send in a note if you have a change of plans for dismissal. Contact the office if there is an emergency change of plans. I cannot guarantee that I will see an emailed change prior to dismissal.


    Homework is sent home Tuesday and is expected to be returned on Friday. Be sure to read daily with your child!


    Please put money in an envelope and write your child's name and what it is for.

    Personal Items

    Please, please, please put your child's name on everything that you send to school. This will save you time and money.


    Try to keep toys at home. Things brought to school may get broken or lost. The best thing to do with a toy that is special to your child is to leave it at home.
