We want to officially take a moment to welcome our new families and welcome back our returning families to Charles Carroll School #46! We continue to have many great things in store for your children as they grow and learn this year at Charles Carroll School #46.
Very soon school buses will be arriving again and the halls and classrooms of Charles Carroll School #46 will be filled with excited students eager for another year of learning and fun! This is a reminder that our school hours have changed. Our new school hours are Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 7:30am – 3:30pm and Wednesday 7:30am-2:50pm. Grades 1-6 will be receiving a copy of their child’s individual schedule the week of August 12th. Please remember your child’s assigned homeroom teacher will have your child for all core instruction which includes ELA, Math, Social Studies and Science. The only time there may be a different teacher in Grades K-6 would be during ELT intervention/enrichment (or Elective) blocks. If you have questions regarding your child’s schedule please contact our school.
To help protect our students from the flu (influenza), we are working with the Monroe County Department of Public Health and the University of Rochester to offer flu vaccine in our school this year. The program’s name is the School Kids Influenza Prevention Program or “SKIPP.” School #46 has been selected to have a one day flu clinic next December. Licensed nurses from the Monroe County Department of Public Health will give the vaccine. SKIPP team members from the University of Rochester will be attending our Meet and Greet and will help interested parents provide consent. If you are interested in consenting to have your child vaccinated in the school clinic next December, please bring your insurance card with you to the Meet and Greet. If you are unsure and have questions, members from the SKIPP team will be available to provide support.
