A Note From Nurse Ann

Birthdays

If you choose to bring in food items for birthdays during recess or snack, you must notify the teacher at least 24 hours in advance so any necessary arrangements can be made. In consideration of food allergies and other medical concerns, any food items brought in must be store bought so that the ingredients are listed. Please consider sending in non-food items to celebrate birthdays. Pencils are always needed and last much longer than a sweet treat.

Feedback Requested

Parents,

Please complete the following survey to assist our school and district in our effort for continuous improvement. Thank you.

New Parent Background Check Requirement for Field Trips!


Parents, if you or any family members (i.e. grandparents, siblings, etc.) plan to chaperone any field trips this year, it is very important that you visit your school's office or our central office for submission of a Child Abuse and Neglect (CAN) background check. This differs from the administrative office of the courts (AOC) criminal background check in that it would show any substantiated child abuse or neglect found by the Department of Community Based Services that wouldn't necessarily show up on a criminal background check. Unlike the AOC check in which results can often be obtained the same day, the CAN checks do take much longer which is why we want to encourage you to get your CAN check as soon as possible if being a field trip chaperone is a possibility for you this year. To complete the CAN check process, please bring one of the following: your driver's license, social security card, birth certificate or ID card. If you have any questions, please contact your school's office or email Garet Wells at garet.wells@woodford.kyschools.us. Thank you.
