A big congratulations to first grade teacher, Nancy Simpson, on being selected as Carman Trails' Teacher of the Year. Nancy is an amazing teacher that is always cheerful and consistently goes the extra mile for her students and all students at Carman Trails.

Nurse's Notes

To keep Carman Trails a healthy learning environment for our students and staff, it is important to know when your child should stay home due to illness. Please keep these guidelines in mind when deciding whether your child should come to school. Students should stay home if they have had any of the following symptoms:

  • fever of 100 or higher in the past 24 hours
  • undiagnosed rash that is accompanied by fever or itching
  • bad cough or difficulty breathing
  • vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
  • sore throat, with fever or swollen glands in the neck

Lost and Found
The cold winter months are in full swing and that means that students are bringing and wearing more items, unfortunately this also means that our Lost and Found is growing. If you are missing any items be sure to check the Lost and Found. You can help us to get your items returned faster, if you make sure to label anything that comes to school with your child's name.

Warm for the Winter Clothing Drive

The Community Service Leaders are hosting a “Warm for the Winter” clothing drive to provide families in our community with warm clothes suited for the chilly weather. We will appreciate your help!

Thank you for making sure students in our community stay warm this winter by adding your donations to our winter clothes-line.
