Notes From The Nurse

As we begin the school year it is important to remember a few things:         

Please be sure your child gets a good night sleep and eats breakfast.

Do not send medication in your child’s backpack.  All medication whether over the counter or prescription must have a written authorization from your physician.   If your child requires the use of an EPI-PEN for severe allergic reactions, please be sure to have a current medication authorization for this school year and bring in the medication to the Health Office.

If your child wears glasses, make sure they bring them everyday to school and the prescription is as current as it can be.  Let your child’s teacher know if they need special placement in the classroom.

Do not send your child to school if they have a fever of 100 or greater.  Children recovering from an illness should be fever free for at least 24 hours without medication before returning to school.  Students taking antibiotics should be on the medication for at least 24 hours before returning to school.  The CDC recommends that everyone 6 months and older get a flu vaccine when it becomes available.

If your child has a specific health concern please be sure to contact the School Nurse assigned to your school so that the proper accommodations can be made to insure your child’s safety.

If your child has any changes in their health during the school year please be sure to update this information with the school office as this feature is not yet available in parent portal.  

Remember – Healthy Children Learn Better.   We look forward to a great year!

California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress

Spring District and State Assessments 2015–16

District Assessment Window April 5, 2016 – June 9, 2016

 

Each spring, most students in California participate in the statewide testing program, which is the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System. The tests in the CAASPP System provide information to teachers, parents/guardians, and students about students’ progress and readiness for college and career. In grades three through eight, most students take the Smarter Balanced online tests for English language arts/literacy (ELA) and mathematics. However, students who have a significant cognitive disability (as designated in their individualized education program) are eligible to take the California Alternate Assessments (CAAs). In grades five and eight, students are also tested in science. For more information, please visit www.eesd.org/page.cfm?p=2653.

 

 

 

Đánh Giá của Học Khu và Tiểu Bang Học Kỳ Mùa Xuân 2015–16

 

Mỗi mùa xuân, hầu hết các học sinh của California đều tham gia vào chương trình kiểm tra trên toàn tiểu bang, đây là Hệ Thống Đánh Giá Thành Tích và Sự Tiến Bộ của Học Sinh của California (CAASPP). Các bài kiểm tra trong Hệ Thống CAASPP cung cấp thông tin cho giáo viên, phụ huynh/người giám hộ, và học sinh về sự tiến bộ và mức độ sẵn sàng cho các tùy chọn vào đại học cao đẳng và nghề nghiệp của học sinh. Đối với các lớp từ lớp ba đến hết lớp tám, hầu hết học sinh sẽ làm bài kiểm tra trực tuyến trên hệ thống Đánh Giá Cân Bằng Thông Minh Hơn về đọc viết/các môn luyện tiếng Anh (ELA) và toán học. Tuy nhiên, những học sinh bị khuyết tật nặng về nhận thức (như được chỉ định trong chương trình giáo dục cá nhân hóa của họ) sẽ đủ điều kiện để tham gia vào chương trình Đánh Giá Thay Thế của California (CAA). Đối với các lớp năm và lớp tám, học sinh cũng được làm bài kiểm tra về môn khoa học. Để biết thêm thông tin, vui lòng truy cập www.eesd.org/page.cfm?p=2653.

Kindergarten and Transitional Kindergarten Registration

Evergreen School District Transfer Process

Screen Shot 2016-03-08 at 9.01.37 AM.png
 

Transitional Kindergarten is Here to Stay

The 2010 Kindergarten Readiness Act established transitional kindergarten, a developmentally appropriate grade to serve younger schoolchildren with birthdays between September and December. TK offers children a developmentally appropriate curriculum taught by credentialed teachers. It blends social and emotional experience with academic learning, so that students not only learn essential pre-literacy, pre-math, and other cognitive skills, but also develop social and self-regulation skills needed to succeed in school and life.

“Transitional Kindergarten.”  TKCalifornia. n.d. Web. Feb. 21, 2016

 

The Evergreen School District TK teachers have carefully crafted a curriculum that combines the California Preschool Foundations and Common Core State Standards. Students are given opportunities to explore topics such as plants, animals, insects and dinosaurs. They work with blocks, paints, puzzles and books. Students learn songs, act out stories, count, and build, all while developing social skills and healthy relationships with their friends and teachers.

 

Evergreen School District currently offers Transitional Kindergarten at 10 school sites throughout the district. Children born between September 2, 2011 and December 1, 2011 are eligible for TK in the 2016-17 school year. Registration packets for TK are available at every school site and enrollment begins March 1.

New Parent Resources

We are happy to announce that we have created a new website with resources to help you support your child in math this year. Please visit: www.cc.schoolloop.com/mathhelp to find valuable links for the different grade level curriculums.  You can access that site and find other helpful information under the Parent Resources dropdown tab at the top of the Clark website.

Immunization Waiver Laws

A Note from the Nurse:

Under a new law known as SB277, beginning January 1, 2016 exemptions based on personal beliefs will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California.  Most families will not be affected by the new law because their children have received all required vaccination.  Personal beliefs exemptions on file for a child already attending child care or school will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at Kindergarten (including Transitional Kindergarten) or 7th grade.

 

For more information about school immunization requirements and resources, please visit the California Department of Public Health’s website at www.shotsforschool.org, or contact your local health department Immunization Education and Planning Program 408-937-2271.

Classroom Volunteers

Please know that the Clark Staff greatly values all of our classroom volunteers.  However, this is just a reminder that you may not bring any siblings (even infants and kindergartners) when you are on campus assisting in a classroom or prepping for activities due to liability.  Thank you!

 

Reminder: Clark Elementary Birthday Policies

Although we recognize that birthdays are a very special time for children and they deserve recognition, school district guidelines and board policy (BP5030) prohibit bringing food or drinks to school for birthday celebrations. These guidelines and policies are in place to support the consistent educational message of student wellness and healthy lifestyle whether in the classroom, cafeteria or at home. Additional impacts include:

  • Loss of instructional time.
  • Logistical constraints placed on teachers.
  • Concern for our many students with food allergies.
  • Added strain on the office and custodial staff. 

If parents choose to provide items to classmates in celebration of birthdays, some alternative items may include pencils, bookmarks, stickers, or perhaps donating a book to the school or classroom library. 

Teachers may elect to honor students as they see fit by giving special recognition, singing of songs, special classroom duties, etc. 

Also, balloon bouquets can be distractive and/or disruptive to instruction and therefore parents are reminded of the school policy that balloon bouquets will not be delivered to classrooms during the school day. We want to thank you for your support of the school and district policies. Working together we can maintain our focus on providing a safe and productive environment at Clark School.
