FOR YOUR INFORMATION

PTA

The PTA plays an important role at our school and we encourage all parents to become a part of this worthwhile organization. Tracy Carrigan is our PTA President for the 2015-2016 school year, and she has a wonderful group of volunteers working with her.  If you would like to serve in the PTA, please let us know. Also, if you would like to volunteer in your child’s classroom, please let the teacher know.

READING PROGRAM

Students who participated in the “Superintendent’s Summer Reading Program” should turn in their list of books read to their homeroom teachers by Friday, August 22nd. Be sure the list has the student’s name and a parent signature on it.  The student should have read at least 10 grade level books or 1,000 pages during the summer months.  The District Team will be visiting our school and recognizing those students who reached their reading goal.

FROM THE NURSE’S DESK

During the school year we do vision screening on all children K-6, and scoliosis screening on 5th-6th graders. Vision screening will take place during school hours in August, 2015.   If you do not want your child screened for vision or scoliosis, please send a written notice to the school.   Children are able to carry an asthma inhaler with them if the proper paperwork is filled out by the parents and physician.  Forms are available in the office.  Children are not allowed to bring or self-administer medication (prescription or over-the-counter).  Medication can be given at school, but only if there is proper paperwork on file (forms can be found on the District’s website, www.wsd.net  Go to Departments, Nursing, and Forms—upper left).  If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse.

Immunizations:  Effective July 1, 1992, The Utah State Immunization Law mandates that student immunization records must be complete and on file at the time of registration in order for a student to attend school.  Principals are not permitted to enroll pupils who are not in compliance.  A grace period will no longer be allowed.  Any person claiming an exemption to immunization shall complete the official Utah School Immunization Record with the required signatures which must be obtained for the Weber County Health Department and/or the family physician. Also, an official birth certificate is required by law before a child can enter school.  If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse, Karen Thorsted, at 801-725-5363.

BOX TOPS AND CAMPBELL’S LABELS
