Welcome, sunshine!  It has been great to have warmer temperatures and more sunshine.  This is a busy time at Handley School and schools across the state as students in grades 3-5 participate in ISTEP+ Part I and Part 2 (April 27-5/15) and 3rd graders participate in IREAD3.  In order to best prepare students, we ask that your child be in school every day (unless running a fever or vomitting).  If your child must be absent, please call the school at 362-2561 by 9:00 a.m.  Thank you for your support as we prepare to begin the final grading period of the 2014-15 school year

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.”
