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!

NOTICE FROM CHILD NUTRITION SERVICES

Important Notice Regarding End of the Year Charging Procedure

and Negative Lunch Account Balances

 

The Evergreen Child Nutrition Services Department takes pride in serving nutritious meals daily to our students. We are firm believers that hungry students can’t learn. Under no circumstances do we want a child to go without lunch.

 

We understand that parents are busy and may occasionally forget to pack a lunch or send in money, however the number of students with a negative balance has grown significantly over the past couple of years. As you know, it is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide students with lunch or a means to pay for meals.

Beginning May 30th  there will be no extending of credit for Breakfast or Lunch through the last day of school.  Your child will need to bring cash, check or use the credit balance on their lunch account. This will hopefully cut down on the amount of money owed at the end of the school year.

 

Also, if your student has an outstanding balance please send in your payment before Friday, May 27th to ensure that proper credit is applied to your student's account.

 

When you receive your parent handbook at the beginning of the year, be sure to sign up with Parent Portal with your email address.  You can then receive notifications of your child’s balance twice a week.  Also available is the online payment system Myschoolbucks.com for tracking the lunch balances and/or for adding funds to the lunch account.


If you have any questions please contact the Child Nutrition Services Department at: 408-223-4500.

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.

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.
