A Note From Mr. Gahan
The end of the school year is upon us. I want to thank you all for the support you provide to Coralville Central. I am so proud of all the students and the perseverance they displayed throughout the entire year. We have students and staff members moving on to new adventures--good luck, and please come back to visit. We look forward to summer break and are excited to start the new school year in August. Enjoy the break and let us know if you need anything over the summer.
Principal, Coralville Central

From the Library - Devin Redmond - PLEASE READ!
EOY Library Wrap-Up report here!
If you're looking for the go-to place for Summer Reading information, look no further! It has everything you could want. Bookmark/save so you have it for later!
If you want your child to take their Chromebook home for the summer, you must read through these expectations and then fill out this form. If you want us to keep the Chromebook here at school, you do not have to do anything. Current 6th graders will all take their devices home, and summer school students will have theirs here at school to use during summer school and then they will take them home. ALL devices and chargers will need to be brought back to school in August.
A big thank you to the Friends of the Coralville Public Library for their monetary donation in support of summer reading. Great books will be going home with even more excellent kids!

Please check your child’s immunization record or call their health care provider to find out if they have received the Tdap booster and meningococcal vaccines (MCV) and make an appointment if needed.

Snacks & Celebrations
The ICCSD is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for our students. In line with that goal, changes are being made to the district’s Wellness Policy regarding classroom snacks birthday treats, and classroom celebrations.
NO FOOD BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS
In line with the district’s Wellness Policy, student birthdays will be celebrated in the classrooms with a special acknowledgment. Each grade level team has determined a special recognition for students who wish to celebrate their birthdays at school. Please note these birthday celebrations will not involve food. If food is sent to school for birthdays the food items will be returned home.
SNACK & CELEBRATIONS :
When food is served to students in the classroom as a snack or during a classroom celebration, the following rules apply (ICCSD Wellness Policy 507.9):
- allow only fresh fruits/vegetables or purchased foods with the ingredients listed (no homemade foods).
- allow only foods that meet the Healthy Food Guidelines/ Smart Snacks. (the only exception to this would be food-tasting related to district-approved curriculum lessons)
- not allow foods with peanuts or peanut butter or foods that were made in a factory where cross-contamination may occur.
- food that does not meet the guidelines will be sent home.
- a list of acceptable foods (Healthy Food Guidelines/ Smart Snacks) will be made available to parents and teachers at the beginning of the school year.
The ICCSD Wellness Policy Classroom Snacks and Celebrations is a complete list of approved foods including where the approved food items can be purchased.
For individuals that have received the Covid-19 vaccine, we strongly encourage you to get the booster. Boosters are now available for those ages 12 and older. For individuals five years of age and older who have not yet received the COVID-19 vaccine, this vaccine locator may be used to find a provider near you.
