SUMMERSILL EAGLES’ NEWSLETTER

School Purpose – Provide students with the habits that enable them to achieve their life goals

Vision: Strive for Excellence In All You Do!

Mission: Learn Something New Each Day

March 2017

All parents & visitors MUST sign into the office to Visit on campus (ID is Required)

 

National School Breakfast Week

March 6th thru 10th

 

March is National Nutrition Month and National School Breakfast Week is March 6 – 10. Please help us in promoting a healthy lifestyle. Students are encouraged to eat breakfast in the café for a healthy start to their day.

 

Nurse’s Corner

Spring fever?! It’s March and spring is here meaning seasonal allergies are lurking in the blooms. You may notice runny noses and/or itchy, watery eyes. An allergy is an overreaction of the immune system to a substance that's harmless to most people. The tendency to develop allergies is often hereditary, which means it can be passed down through your genes. If you notice that your child’s quality of life is being affected, you can speak to your doctor about allergy medications appropriate for children. You can also wash sheets and curtains in warm water during spring, use an air purifier, and encourage plenty of sleep.

– School Nurse: Dana M. Lovitt, RN, BSN

 

Safety Reminder

For the safety and protection of your child, all visitors and volunteers must check in at the office, show your ID, and then obtain a pass. Please remember to sign out before leaving campus.

 A parent who brings a child after 8:25 a.m. must sign the child in and the child must have a late pass before he/she can go to class.

Parent/guardian of van riders please notify the after school program that your child/children attend when they will not be riding the van in the afternoon.  The van drivers are always looking for children and we have a hard time hunting them down to see if they were checked out early or didn't come to school that day. This delays the childcare van from returning to the center.

  

Parents,

Please do not block the entry by the Media Center to the back parking lot in the mornings or afternoons.

Thank you.

 

 

Bus Notes

Parents and Caregivers,

If your child needs to ride a different bus other than the one assigned, PLEASE, send a note to the bus driver with the following information: (for safety reasons over the phone messages cannot be accepted)

 

1.        DATE: what day permission is given?

2.        BUS #:

3.        WHERE: Address as to where the child is going?

4.        SIGNATURE OF ADULT GIVING PERMISSION: state relationship to student

 

This must be done each day that the child is to ride a different bus. If the note does not include this information the child will ride his/her assigned bus home. By law the school must have full information in writing as to where to take a child from school. Your support and cooperation in this matter is appreciated.

Thank you for supporting our safe transportation of our students.

Attendance

Summersill students have had their fair share of illnesses this season. We do understand that a child will be absent from school due to illness. If your child has been absent, please send in a doctor’s note or a hand written note from the parent or guardian. It will be coded as an excused absence.

For a Tardy to be excused, a Doctor’s Note must be turned in. Absences, Tardys and Early Check-Outs affect perfect attendance. If you should have any questions regarding attendance, please contact the Data Manager, Jennifer Fountain at (910)455-2672.
