    Please note that we DO allow devices, but Pirates Cove/Poole’s Mill is not responsible for them. Each child is responsible for their own belongings.


    A structured homework/reading time is allotted daily for all students. We will work with students to document their required daily 30 minutes of “home reading” if they bring a book and their log. In addition, it is the child’s responsibility to know if they have homework/reading to complete.


    Kindergarten and first graders PLEASE keep a change of clothes in their backpack. Please dress your child appropriately for the weather and according to school regulations.
