Reminders from the School Nurse
All students entering Kindergarten, 6th Grade, and high school need physicals with their shot records on file. Any student entering the school district for the first time, regardless of grade, also needs a physical with his/her shot record on file. All students entering Kindergarten, 3rd, and 7th Grade need dental exams on file. Students will be given forms prior to leaving school in June.
Students who will be taking medication, such as an inhaler, while in school, need a completed MED-1 form on file. This form contains the doctor's order and gives me and the school your permission to treat your child in your absence. This form is available in the main office.
Car Line for the Week of September 22nd
For those whose children get picked up in car line, please be aware that only the first five lanes will be open next week due to the carnival. Pre-K and Kindergarten car lines will dismiss as usual; however, we ask parents picking up children in grades 1 through 8 to please come no earlier than 2:15 p.m. This will allow the parents of our Pre-K and Kindergarten children to clear the parking lot before it fills up with more cars picking up the older children. Remember that the parking lot will be set up for the carnival with rides, booths, and tents and we must work around all these things. We will try to have some volunteers in the back parking lot showing you where to park to allow for a smooth dismissal. Thanks for your patience and we hope you and your children have the opportunity to enjoy one of the best weeks of the school year - Carnival Week!!!
Scrip pre-orders need to be placed by Thursday, September 25th to ensure delivery by Thursday, October 2nd. Please remember that school is closed next Friday because of the carnival. Enjoy!
