**Important - Healthcare Authorization Form**

Check the backpacks, a VERY IMPORTANT letter came home on Friday!

Due to a change in legislation, students must have parent permission to receive medical care in our school clinic.

This means for Nurse Loren to apply a band-aid, take a temperature, or listen to your child’s lungs, you MUST sign and return the medical form.

If you do not return the form to give permission and your child is sent to the clinic, you will be called to pick them up. We will not be able to care for their needs even as small as an ant bite.

If you wish to allow your child to have access to clinic care, the form must be returned on Tuesday.

In the event of a life-threatening situation, we will always act in the best interest of the student.

If you have any questions, please contact the front office.

Bicycle Safety Program for Grades 3rd - 5th

Starting this upcoming Tuesday February 8th- March 4th, all students in 3rd-5th grade will begin riding and practicing their bike safety skills. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that your child bring their own personal helmet to wear while on the bikes. This gives me a great opportunity to check out their helmet and make sure it fits properly and is in good working condition. If your child does not bring their own helmet, I will provide them with one to wear during our class. Students will have the option to bring their own bike and use their personal bike during this time. Their bike will need to be parked in the bike rack for easy access. If not, no worries as we will have a bike trailer full of bikes that the students can use instead.

I know there are some students who do not know how to ride a bike. I will allow those students to bring in their own personal scooter (not electric) to practice bike safety skills. If they are not able to do either, they should still attend class and they will observe and help me out.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

Thank you,

Ms. Best
