Dear Janney Families,

We are closely watching the path of Hurricane Florence.  We will make an announcement tomorrow afternoon regarding the status of Friday’s annual Fall Picnic and Saturday’s Rain Garden celebration.

This Tuesday, September 18, is School Picture Day.  Please note that families do not need to pre-pay or send in any paperwork beforehand. All students are photographed and families will be given access to their child’s photos in an online gallery where they can choose to order (or not order) the photos.

Also included in this week’s newsletter: information about Kids Ride Free; an announcement from DCPS about the School Food Advisory Board; and, a reminder about upcoming events, including grade level coffees.  We will resume our Student Support Services Column next week.

Finally, this week’s THT includes a flyer for Janney Night at Potomac Pizza on Monday, September 17th.   Also included is a letter from DCPS Chief Carla Watson with information regarding regular water testing in school buildings.

Kids Ride Free (KRF)
On October 1, 2018, DC Department of Transportation, Metro and DCPS are implementing a new program to provide Kids Ride Free (KRF)  Smart Trip Cards for our commuter students.  Please e-mail Ann Beumel or Tawana Franklin to make a request for the KRF Smart trip card.   If you do not commute to school on bus or rail, it is not necessary to request a KRF Smart Trip card.    DCPS will provide schools with KRF smart trip cards for field trips.  Students will continue to use their  DC One card for free access to  Libraries, DC Pools, and when required, to DPR recreation centers.

School Food Advisory Board (DCPS Announcement)
DCPS Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) has created the School Food Advisory Board (SFAB) to share updates and gain feedback from the DCPS community in our effort to continually improve our meal programs. We want to make sure that every school community’s voice is heard!

Please join the next SFAB meeting on October 3 from 5:30pm-7:30pm at Brookland Middle School. Parents, teachers, administrators, students, and all community stakeholders of DCPS school meals are welcome to attend. Those interested can visit the SFAB website to RSVP or learn more.

Upcoming events – Reminder
For the month of September, we will hold grade level coffees so that families from each grade level get to know each other in a smaller, more informal setting.  The grade level coffees will take place in the cafeteria.

Grade level coffees:
3rd/4th/5th: September 12 @ 8:45 am

Warmly,
Alysia Lutz, Principal
