If you have questions about this please contact your child’s teacher. 1st grade begins on Sept. 3rd & Kindergarten on Sept. 9th.

4. FAMILY EDUCATION AND PRIVACY RIGHTS ACT: The law guarantees your family rights to privacy in school matters. You must notify the principal by September 1, or within fifteen days of enrollment (whichever is later in the school year) if you do not want your child's photo or name to appear in school-sponsored publications. This includes, newsletters, school directories, honor roll or awards lists, promotion rosters, athletic programs, etc.

5. Hancock County is very close to being able to open up a Child Advocacy Center. This Center will provide services to children who are victims of child abuse or neglect in letting them be able to tell their story one time (rather than multiple times to the DCS worker, law enforcement, the prosecutor's office, etc). Not only will a center reduce the emotional toll on children who are in a difficult situation, but it will also increase the ability of prosecutors, child services, and law enforcement to protect the children in our community.
Please help them obtain another State Farm grant by voting on each of your accounts, 1x day, through August 23.
