Request for Laundry Bags

As we continue to work through changes in our schools in this COVID environment, we are writing to ask you to please help with a solution for Winter Gear Storage for your child(ren).

As our children cannot have loose winter gear and the hallways and classrooms look different, each child will need to have a Drawstring Laundry Bag that is easy for children to close, is washable and NOT mesh. These can be labeled and brought to school with your child before December 1st. They will be sent home with your child weekly for laundering. Please contact Midge Connolly connollym@weston.org if she can offer help with this purchase (remains anonymous). An example of a laundry bag can be found here. Any color works but again, please make sure it is washable and NOT mesh.

Happy Halloween from the Weston Police Department

Please follow the guidelines to ensure that safety measures are kept in place. Students can stop by the station and take a bag while supplies last from today through 10/30 from 12-3 pm. Please practice social distancing and wear a mask when you come to pick up your goodie-bag. No food or candy will be placed in the goodie-bags.  Click to view flyer.
