HANDLEY SCHOOL NEWSLETTER
The Handley School newsletter is sent out the first Friday of each month. You may use the link below to see the most current newsletter. This is a great way for parents, students, and staff to stay connected.
The Wellness Committee met on April 27, 2011, and formulated a policy addressing treats for classroom celebrations. The policy states:
“For the safety of all children, all treats furnished for students, including birthday treats, must be commercially purchased. These treats should be kept simple and in a form that is easy to pass out to students in the class.”
