Items That Need Your Attention

ASQ Parent Reports

As part of Home Visits, each family completed the ASQ3 and ASQSE2 developmental screeners. As results were received, a parent report was generated which gives more information and some easy-to-use strategies that you can use at home to support your child's development. You will receive your parent report in your child's Friday Folder in the coming weeks. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions after you receive this report.


If you have not yet completed the ASQ screeners, please do so as soon as possible! This is a requirement for our program. You may access the screeners to complete digitally with the links below.

Time to Eat!

Medications & Meal Modifications

If your child takes medication at school, you will need to have your child's physician complete and sign a Request to Administer Medication form, which will need to be returned to Mrs. Banzhaf. Medication must be sent in the original packaging with the original label. If your child needs meal modifications due to religious or medical restrictions, please complete and return the attached forms.

Transportation

Car Seats

We have seen in the news recently about many children and caregivers not surviving car accidents because they were not properly restrained. Unintentional accidents are the leading cause of death among children. If you need a car seat, we have a great resource to obtain one. Also, please remember that the car seat needs to be properly restrained within the car as well and you must have the proper number of seatbelts per person in the car. Please move seats between cars as needed when changing vehicles with the children.
