IMPORTANT! 2014-2015 Elementary Updates

Elementary Specials
On April 11, 2014 the Governing Board voted unanimously to adopt a modified schedule for K-5 elementary schools that includes a Wednesday early release. This decision was made after the following data was provided to the Board:
  • 15 out of 19 elementary school principals prefer the early release Wednesday to a shortened schedule (9 a.m.- 3:10 p.m.) every day.
  • With a 60% response rate of all elementary teachers in K-5 schools, 71% (263) of teachers prefer the early release Wednesday option.
  • Of the 74 parent group leaders who responded, 44% prefer the early release Wednesday option while 56% prefer the shortened day option.

This decision is to accommodate the loss of half of the specials (art, music, PE) in elementary schools due to the reduction of the M & O override.  Next year, the early release time will be at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesdays. Read Full Update

TEACHER OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to Mr. Hedrick for being named Charro’s Teacher of the Year! 




MEDICATION REMINDER
The health office needs your permission to dispense medication to your child. Medication forms are available in the health office or at the front desk and must be completed when dropping off any medication for your child. In accordance with district policy, hand-written notes are not acceptable.
·All over-the counter medications must be dispensed through the health office. To ensure that medication has not expired and the dosage is correct, all medication needs to be in the original container.
·Doctor-prescribed medication must be in original container with the prescription label that includes the patient’s name intact.
Please remember your child must be fever free (no fever without the aid of Tylenol or Ibuprophen) and vomit free for 24 hours prior to returning to school. This protects all students from illness.

Thank you for your help.
If you have any questions please call Mrs. Snodderly at 480-484-2811.



Returning to school after an illness….should my child be at school yet??

Arizona is seeing a huge increase in Influenza and other viruses. Here are the guidelines to follow before returning to school:

       · Influenza: People with Influenza may be able to infect others from 1 day prior to onset of illness to 5-7         days afterwards. No student with an Influenza diagnosis should return to school with symptoms: headache, chills, excessive coughing, body aches, etc.

       · Fever: Please keep your child home from school with a fever 100* or greater. Students may return to school with a temperature less than 100* (without the use of Ibuprofen or Tylenol)--only if the child is fever-free for 24 hours.

       · Vomiting: Students should not return to school for 24 hours after last episode of vomiting. Episodes of vomiting without fever can be due to virus and may still be contagious to classmates.

Please indicate specific illness or diagnosis on the attendance line if your child is home sick. It helps to watch classroom trends. If your child is sent home from school during the school day with a fever and vomiting, to adhere to 24 hours fever or vomiting-free, teachers should not expect to see that student back in class the next school day. Teach your child to: Cover their cough with the inside of their elbow, wash hands frequently, especially before eating!
