Hilltop Preschool and Daycare September Message

It is hard to believe that summer is almost over and the new school year has begun!
Welcome to all the new families that have joined the Hilltop family this fall. We are
so excited to get to know your family. We are truly grateful that you have chosen
Hilltop for your child’s preschool and/or daycare.

School age parents, if your child will not be getting off the bus at Hilltop on their
scheduled days, please call to let us know. This saves us time by not having to
call the school or parents to find out where that child is.

If you would like to receive emails from Hilltop about important events coming up
or to get our monthly newsletter electronically, please be sure to leave your
email address with Ms. Laura (3 year old teacher).

Please remember that Hilltop is a “nut free” center. We have a few children with
nut allergies and to keep all the children safe in the center please read labels
on your child’s snacks to make sure no nuts are accidentally brought in.

The Connecticut Department of Early Childhood Education has made it a requirement for all children aged 6-59 months attending a daycare center shall receive at least one dose of influenza vaccine now through December 31st. All Children aged 6-59 months who have not received vaccination against influenza previously shall receive 2 doses of vaccine the first influenza season that they are vaccinated. Children who have not received the flu vaccine by December 31st must be excluded from child care for the duration of influenza season (through March 31st) or until they receive at least one dose of the influenza vaccine. Once your child has had their flu vaccine, please bring in either their updated immunization record or the slip the doctor/nurse gave you indicating the date your child received the vaccine.

Looking ahead…Picture day will be on Monday, October 8th. As the date gets closer please be on the lookout for the forms in your child’s cubby. You are not obligated to purchase the pictures, you can choose which pictures you want, if any, and just pay for those.

Reminder: Hilltop will be closed on Monday, September 3rd for Labor Day.
