MEDICATION PICK-UP

Important information if your student has a health care plan and or medication at school:


  • Medications must be picked up on the last day your student attends school. Pick-up will be the end of school day on Friday, June 17th at 1:15pm or Monday, June 20th at 11:45am. Medications can not be sent home with students and any medications left after June 22nd will have to be destroyed as we are prohibited from holding them over the summer. If you are unable to pick up on the above dates there will be staff in the building during school hours June 21st and 22nd.
  • Students with health care plans will have their paperwork for next year sent home with them within the next week. Included will be all the forms for next year that will need parent’s and medical provider’s signatures. Summer is a great time to catch up on any doctor visits and renew any prescriptions that are needed for next year. Appointments in August fill up quickly so to avoid any last minute rush it’s best to schedule appointments early.


We hope your families have a fun, sunny and safe summer!

Mary Mellis, RN and Heather Nichols, HRA

LOST & FOUND

The Lost and Found is full to the brim with coats. Anything left after June 20th will be donated. Look for it outside afterschool or ask the front office if you can pop in and look through it.

    MAKE SURE YOUR CHILD'S IMMUNIZATIONS ARE UP TO DATE

    It is important to make sure your child goes to their regularly scheduled wellness appointments, which often include immunizations. The summer months are a great time to get your child caught up with immunization requirements before the 2022-2023 school year. Schedule your appointments early, as health care providers’ schedules quickly fill up in August and September. Make sure to turn in your updated immunization paperwork to the school by Wednesday, September 7.

    This reminder is especially important if your child is transitioning to preschool, kindergarten, or 7h grade, as each of these grades has additional immunization requirements.

    Every student enrolled/registered in school or childcare in the state of Washington must have medically verified up-to-date immunization records on file with the school in which they are enrolled/registering before the first day of school 2022-2023. Medically verified immunization records include one or more of the following:

    $30 AFFORADABLE CONNECTIVITY PROGRAM PLAN FOR FAMILIES

    FAQs

    If I am approved for ACP and currently on an internet service plan with a provider, can I switch to a different internet service plan of that provider, including to that provider’s low-cost plan, and receive the ACP benefit?

    • Yes. The ACP benefit can be applied to any internet service offering, and providers cannot restrict you from switching service offerings or subject you to mandatory waiting periods. Sometimes providers prohibit existing customers from switching to low-cost internet service plans; however, consumers receiving the ACP benefit are not subject to these “existing customer” restrictions.

    What happens if my provider has eligibility requirements for an internet service plan that conflict with ACP rules? (e.g. My provider requires that I pay off my past debts before signing up for XYZ internet service plan)

    • ACP rules override the rules of participating providers in the context of an ACP consumer. For instance, a provider may generally require that consumers pay off past or present debts before signing up for XYZ internet service plan. However, consumers who are approved to receive ACP benefits are not subject to that requirement (since the ACP rules prohibit providers from declining to enroll ACP consumers based on past or present debts).

    Note: The ACP rules clearly allow ACP consumers to apply their benefit to any internet service offering that is generally available (i.e. not a grandfathered/legacy plan) and prohibit mandatory waiting periods (47 CFR 54.1808(e)(6)(iii)) and restrictions on switching plans (Para. 166 of the Report and Order).
