March News

March is here!  Spring starts on March 20th.  Spring is a wonderful time of the year.....gorgeous flowers, lots of greenery, beautiful weather.  For many of us, its a time that we start thinking about planting a garden and getting our yard in shape.  March 3rd, also starts kindergarten registration at the school sites.  Please make sure that you have all of the required information before you go to the school to register.  The information is on the District website and has downloadable forms that you will need.  Note the new immunization requirement for two Varicella vaccines.  
 
Along with the beautiful weather comes allergies.  If your child needs an inhaler or allergy medicines during school, make sure we have the proper paperwork in the school office.  We can not administer any medications without a form that needs to be signed by the doctor.  The downloadable form is on this website.  
 
This month, we will be wrapping up the hearing and vision screenings for grades K, 2nd, 5th and 8th.  We will be sending home information on Big Smiles dental program for the younger grades.  It's a great time to get the required immunizations for next year.  Remember all incoming 7th graders MUST have a Tdap vaccine and a second Varicella (new law going into effect July 1, 2019), or they will not be allowed to start school in the Fall.  If  you have any questions, please call our office at 209-887-8308.
