A parent or legal guardian of a student may object to hearing and/or vision screening tests for their child on religious grounds. If a religious objection is made, a written and signed statement from the parent or legal guardian detailing such objections must be presented by October 15, 2016.
“Vision screening is not a substitute for a complete eye and vision examination by an eye doctor. Your child is not required to undergo the vision screening if an optometrist or ophthalmologist has completed and signed a report indicating that an eye examination has been administered within the previous 12 months”.
Picking Students Up from School
Thank you for cooperation.
Halloween is just around the corner, so as you begin planning Halloween costumes, we want you to be aware of our school rules regarding costumes.
Face paint/make up is discouraged
Students are NOT to wear their costume to school. They are to bring their costume in a bag.
In light of recent events, we strongly discourage the wearing of clown costumes.
