CHECK IN AND OUT PROCEDURES

Checking Students Out

Office staff will conduct all signing in and out of students. Parents may call to check-out students and then the student is sent out to the parent with visual identification. For in-person checking out, once a student is checked out, the parent will go back to their vehicle and the student will be sent out by the office. School Phone Number: 316-218-4630


Checking Students In

Staff members will check students in to create a touchless system. Students need to have temperature checked before proceeding to class if they are arriving for the first time that day.

4TH & 5TH GRADE ARCHERY ACTIVITY

During the month of January, the 4th and 5th grade students at Meadowlark will be participating in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) during their PE class. The NASP program promotes the international-style target archery as part of the in-school curriculum, to improve educational performance and participation in the shooting sports among students in grades 4-12.


Nearly everyone can enjoy success in archery. The sport or discipline of archery is highly inclusive and is for many enthusiasts, a lifelong activity. In NASP-style archery, students of all genders, abilities and backgrounds flourish.


Before students will be allowed to take their first shots, they will first learn the safety rules & procedures as well as the 11 Steps to Archery Success. Your child will be receiving a card which has the 11 Steps to Archery Success and the Safety Whistle Commands listed. Please be sure to have your child study these, because they will be tested over this material.


Thank you for your help and support. If you have any questions, please email me at crusinbt@usd385.org.
