Kindergarten Phase-in Week

The first week of school for kindergarteners will be a phase-in week where students will attend TWICE to allow for small groups to learn and to feel comfortable as they adjust to routines.
Please see the below schedule to determine the dates your child will attend during that week to assist you in your planning.  These days will be full days at school (8:30am – 3:30pm).  Students who arrive prior to 8:15 will wait in the gym until the bell rings for them to go to their class.  Adults will be in there to supervise, and for the phase-in week, you may wait in the gym with your child if you would like.  Please note that assignments to specific teachers will not be made until after the New Student Registration on July 27, so please be patient as you wait to hear from your child’s teacher before August 01.  We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school family.
Monday, August 8th: last names A-I
Tuesday, August 9th: last names J-Q
Wednesday, August 10th: last names R-Z
Thursday, August 11th: last names A-L
Friday, August 12th: last names M-Z

End-of-Year Notification for Medicine Pick-up

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Although it seems early to be discussing this, district policy changed in January 2016 about medications left in the clinic after the spring term. Please keep this information fresh in your mind and share this information with other parents in the spirit of looking ahead.

If your student receives medication during the school day, please note that ALL medications (prescription and non prescription) MUST be picked up by a parent, guardian or parent designated adult by the last day of school instruction and/or the last day if the child transfers to another school. The school is unable to properly store medications over the summer. Medications (regardless of cost) that remain in clinic will be disposed of on the last day of school instruction, after dismissal.

Please arrange your schedule and look ahead to the last week of school to come in and see Nurse Sarah.

Sarah Huckabay, RN, BSN

Indian Lake Elementary
