Wildcat Weekly 9/5/19

Wow, we are already finishing up our second week back at school! Thank you for your cooperation with filling out the forms, attending the various back to school night presentations, and most importantly for communicating with your teachers. We always strive to work in partnership with you as parents to make it the best year possible for your students. If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to your teacher, to our new Assistant Principal Robin Williams or to myself. Please remember it is always best to begin with the teacher for clarification.

Please note that Scantron testing begins next week already for those students in grades 3 - 7. Please plan on having your child arrive to school on time for the next few weeks as the testing begins first thing in the morning, and we do not want them to feel rushed during the testing. The results of this testing is very helpful to our teachers in guiding instructional practices in the classroom and the results will be shared with you as parents shortly.

I wish you a wonderful rest of your week and weekend!

Adrianne Jewett, Principal

Clinic Reminders:

1a Please watch for email from the clinic. As Mrs. Bliven goes through forms and medications dropped off, sometimes signatures or forms are missing. The forms for medications are required in order for the nurse to administer the medication. Medications without forms cannot legally be given because there is no physician authorization, dosing instructions, or signed parent permission form. Please be patient as Mrs. Bliven works through this process this year. She is aware the forms are confusing, and she will work on improving the process to make it easier for you as she gets settled in her role.

1b. If you are sending medications in for the school nurse to dispense, they must be in the original package, and if prescription labeled, and required forms completed. Liquids like Benadryl should be in new unopened packages. Benadryl tablets or chewables just need to be in the foil sealed packaging. First time medications MUST be dropped off by a parent/guardian with the nurse to ensure paperwork is completed and to verify medication was received. The forms can be found on the school website under Parents>Clinic. Questions or concerns please email the nurse at jbliven@olgcschool.org

2. ALLERGY TABLE INFORMATION: If your child has a listed FOOD allergy on their health form, they will be encouraged to eat at the "allergy free" table which is NUT FREE. For clarification, at this time, that table is not all allergy free, it is NUT FREE. Those students at the table may not have nuts of any type but there may still be gluten, fruit, soy, sesame, shellfish, and/or dairy, etc. If your child is TREE NUT only, and they eat Peanuts or Peanut butter they CANNOT sit at the allergy table. If you feel your child does NOT need to be at the allergy table, or will bring an alternative nut product to the one they are allergic to and should not be at the allergy table because of that please email the nurse (jbliven@olgcschool.org). She will let the lunch monitors know it is okay for the student to be eating at the regular tables.
