Preschool students may sign up to bring a pet to morning music time during the week of March 14-18. A sign up sheet will be available at school during the week prior to this event. For the safety of our students, please be sure that any pets you bring are friendly and in good health. Also, please note that reptiles, frogs, baby chicks, and ferrets are all restricted by the Oregon Rules for Certified Child Care Centers. If you bring one of these restricted animals, it will have to remain in its cage for the duration of the visit, and students will not be allowed to handle it. A parent must accompany the animal during sharing time and must then remove the animal at the end of morning music time (8:45).
If your child has severe animal allergies or fear of animals, please talk to your child’s teacher so that we can be prepared to accommodate your child’s needs during Pet Week.
