RUN/WALK CLUB APRIL 1 - MAY 27

The Run/Walk Club is a Sage Elementary favorite! Students are encouraged to run or walk the track during their recess and other free time. Students keep track of the number of laps they complete and earn charms for their Run/Walk Club Necklace. This is a great chance for kids to set goals for fitness and health!

DRESS CODE REMINDERS

Students are expected to dress in appropriate school attire. We do not allow spaghetti straps or shorts that are more than four inches above the knee. Please do not send your child in flip flops as our playground is not a safe place for those types of footwear.


Students are to wear their shoes at all times while in school. To encourage communication and reduce distractions, students may not wear hats indoors. Hat are welcome outside at recess.


We strongly encourage that all clothing, including hats be labeled with your child's first and last name.

CANAL SAFETY

Sage Elementary is close to many canals and all students need to be aware and know safety rules. Canals are dangerous and should not be used for any recreational activity. Even if the surface water appears smooth and calm, there are many areas where the current can swiftly pull an individual under—especially a child. The canal system and ditch roads of North Unit Irrigation District are considered private property and are not for public use. The district also periodically uses herbicides in the water, which can cause skin irritation.

  • Never swim in irrigation canals.
  • Keep young children and pets away from canals.
  • Never jump in to rescue pets. Call 911 for help.
  • Do not play near or on canal banks. They are steep and can be slippery.

SMARTER BALANCE TESTING

Grades 3-5 will participate in Smarter Balance Testing. Testing for Sage students will begin at the end of April. Help your student by making sure they are getting plenty of rest, eating a healthy breakfast, and are at school everyday and on time! The school day begins at 8:45am! More information can be found about testing on the Redmond School District website: https://redmondschools.org/30-day-notice-of-statewide-testing/

COVID-19 Test Available

The Oregon Health Authority and the Oregon Department of Education recently sent COVID-19 test kits to every Title I school in the state, including Sage Elementary School.

Sage Elementary School received enough tests for every student to receive one of these test kits, which contain two rapid antigen tests. Families are encouraged to use these tests if they develop COVID-19 symptoms or have a known exposure to someone with COVID-19. You can learn more about these tests here.

The test kits are available in the nurse’s office at school. Please contact the school office if you’d like a test kit.

Stay healthy!
