Open Lab Night: Parent and Student Interactive Science Exploration Hour!

February 26, 2019

6:00-7:00 pm

Robison Cafeteria and Library

Snap circuits, slime, magnets, and live animals are just some of the exciting stations to investigate at Robison's Open Lab Night. Open Lab Night is one hour of interactive science exploration for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students and parents in a come-and-go format. Parents and students will be given an exploration guide to work together at each station. Our science teachers will be available to answer questions and lend a hand if needed. Please RSVP by returning the flyer or completing this form https://goo.gl/98xC4A by February 22nd, so that we can have enough supplies on hand. We hope you can make it! For more information, please contact Kelli Blankenburg at 281-213-1736 or Kelli.blankenburg@cfisd.net.

K.I.S.S. (Kids Invite Someone Special)

On February 14 and 15, our students have the opportunity to invite someone special to eat with them. We are only able to accommodate lunch guests for the grade levels hosting their K.I.S.S. lunches. Therefore, lunch guests are limited to Pre-K, Kindergarten, 1st and 4th grades on Thursday, February 14, and for 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades on Friday, February 15. On the day that a grade level is not hosting their K.I.S.S. lunch, the students will eat in their classrooms.


The schedule is as follows:


Thursday, February 14

Kinder @ 10:40 am

1st @ 11:35 am

4th @ 12:35 pm


Friday, February 15

2nd @ 11:05 am

3rd @ 1:05 pm

5th @ 12:05 pm


We look forward to seeing our special guests on these two days.

GUIDELINES FOR KEEPING SICK CHILDREN HOME FROM SCHOOL

A sick child who is unable to participate in school in a meaningful way should be kept home to rest and recover until symptoms resolve. Keeping a sick child home also protects other children, school staff, and visiting community members from contracting an illness that can be spread from person to person. Please be aware of the following guidelines for school attendance.

  • Fever: A child must remain home with fever > 100° F and may only return after he/she has been fever free for 24 hours without fever-reducing medicine such as Tylenol or Motrin.
  • Diarrhea/Vomiting: A child with diarrhea and/or vomiting must stay at home and may return to school only after being symptom-free for 24 hours.
  • Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye): Following a diagnosis of pink eye, a child may return to school 24 hours after the first dose of prescribed medication has been administered.
  • Rashes: Common infectious diseases with rashes are most contagious in the early stages. A child with a suspicious rash must stay at home and may return to school only after a health care provider has made a diagnosis and authorizes the child's return to school in writing or have symptoms resolved completely.
  • Head lice (pediculosis): Students who have an active case of live lice may attend school only after treatment which eliminates all live lice. Head lice do not jump or fly and are most commonly contracted by head-to-head touch. Head lice are common in school-aged children, so parents should routinely monitor children for live lice and teach the avoidance of behaviors that spread lice.

If you take your child to a healthcare provider for an evaluation of illness or injury, please be sure to request a written letter stating when your child may return to school and any accommodations required upon his/her return.

A healthy school community requires parents and schools to partner with each other. To prevent/minimize local outbreaks of contagious disease, parents must keep children who have an illness that can be spread from person to person at home, and CFISD school nurses will exclude students with symptoms of a communicable illness from school attendance.

MEDICATIONS

All medication must be brought to the clinic by a parent/guardian. This includes all prescription and non-prescription medication. This even includes cough drops. Medication will be secured in the clinic at all times. Any medication that is not signed into the clinic by a parent/guardian will not be administered during the school day.

Please contact me with any questions.

Benchmark Testing

Benchmark testing for 3rd-5th grades will be taking place in both February and March. These testing days allow our students the opportunity to experience a testing environment similar to STAAR, and the results provide our teachers with information about how to best support our students. In order to maintain a secure testing environment, we do not allow visitors for any grade levels on these days. Schedules will be altered on this day to simulate the same schedule that will be used on STAAR, and testing will occur throughout the building in order to provide the small group accommodations that are required for some of our students.


Please help your child to be successful on these days by helping them to be well rested for each of their testing days.

Child Find Information

The Cypress Fairbanks Independent School District Special Education Department provides educational services to an estimated 8,000 students with special needs.

Teachers, instructional aides, speech pathologists and related service personnel provide instruction and related services to students who have a disability. Students are eligible for special education services from the age of 3 through 21. Students who have hearing and vision disabilities may receive services from birth.

To be eligible for special education services, students must meet eligibility requirements as a student with an orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, auditory impairment, visual impairment, diagnosis of deaf/blind, intellectual disabilities, emotional disturbance, learning disability, speech impairment, multiple disabilities, autism, non-categorical early childhood, or traumatic brain injury.

Cypress Fairbanks ISD instructional arrangements for elementary school-aged students include in-class support, resource classes and speech/language therapy. Preschool Programs for Children with Disabilities (PPCD), adaptive behavior, and LIFE Skills classes are offered as cluster services at the elementary level.

In-class support, resource classes, LIFE Skills, adaptive behavior and speech/language services are available at all secondary level campuses.

Related services may include psychological services, occupational therapy, physical therapy, orientation and mobility training, school health services, adaptive equipment and special transportation.

Other special education service options include the Dorothy Carlton Center, the Adaptive Behavior Center, homebound, adaptive physical education, itinerant and on-site services to the visually impaired.

As part of the Northwest Harris County Cooperative for the Hearing Impaired, services for students who have auditory impairments are offered at Birkes Elementary, Hancock Elementary, Spillane Middle School and Cy-Ridge High School. In addition to receiving instruction at the on-site campuses, students may be served by itinerant teachers, speech pathologists, and/or an audiologist at their home campus.

Are you the parent of a pre-school (3-5 years) or school-aged child and have concerns regarding your child’s physical, speech, and/or emotional development? Is your child experiencing academic problems which could interfere significantly with educational success? If so, contact the Special Education Department at 281-897-6400 to discuss your concerns and learn more about the referral process.
