In response to some of the issues that have come up around Pokémon cards and other toys, we are asking for your help in monitoring what items are coming to school. Recently we have had incidents of inappropriate trading of items for cash or other toys, stolen Pokémon cards, and inappropriate choices of when to play with toys. These items are interfering with our learning time in classrooms and students’ abilities to focus on finishing their lunches at the lunch tables. Please help us reduce the number of these incidents and the distractions at school by ensuring that your child’s Pokémon cards, stuffed animals, and other toys remain at home. Thank you for your help!
