The Friday Flyer

From Boone Meadow Elementary School

From the Eagles' Nest:

Mother Nature cooperated with us this morning as we enjoyed a wonderful Field Day experience. We combined students of different ages to streamline the day, and it was beautiful. Thank you to all our flexible volunteers and staff!

Our last week of school promises to be filled with excitement as we near the finish line. Here's to a fantastic week ahead.

Registration for 2017-2018

By now all returning families should have received an email containing a link to register for next school year. Thank you to those families who have already completed your Infosnap registration! Please be sure to register your children for next school year. If you received the registration email, but if your child will not attend Boone Meadow for 2017-2018, please contact Mrs. Cunningham (x14995) in the office as soon as possible.


State law stipulates that the medical records of children on file at school show the required immunizations have been completed by the 20th day of the school year. That day is September 5, 2017. Information regarding immunizations requirements for 2017-2018 can be found here.

Parents of children whose immunizations are not up-to-date should contact their health care provider or the Boone County Health Department to schedule an appointment for the necessary immunizations. Some pharmacies also carry the necessary vaccines.

If parents object to immunizations, a written objection must be on file in the school office by September 5, 2017. This must be updated yearly. Children who do not have up to date vaccination records by that date will not be allowed to return to school until the proper immunization information is on file. Students who have appointments with their health care provider after Sept. 5th 2017, must present proof of the scheduled appointment in order to remain in school.

Medication Pick up in the Health Clinic

We are asking for your assistance in picking up any medication that your child currently may have in the health care clinic by May 26, 2017. The clinic is open on school days from 8:00-4:00.

For the safety of our students, all medication must be transported to and from school by an parent/guardian. Any medication that is left in the clinic will be discarded by St. Vincent health professionals.

Please contact Amy Deinlein in the clinic with any questions or concerns.

Hiring Guest Teachers!

Zionsville Community School is hiring Guest Teachers! Quality guest teachers are an important asset to our schools and require special attributes to enhance our students’ learning process. The best guest teachers demonstrate the desire to work well with children ages 3-18, relate well to all students, inspire a love of learning and have a good sense of humor. In addition, they must be flexible, dedicated, patient, kind, fair and consistent.

Guest teachers can manage the days of the week they are available to work through an automated system called Aesop. This user-friendly system is accessible online or through a touch-tone phone which allows ZCS teachers to enter absences and guest teachers to select available jobs.

If you meet the above requirements and would like to start the application process.

After your employment application has been submitted, please send an email to our Sub Coordinator at confirming that you would like to be considered for a guest teacher position at Zionsville Community Schools.

Smart 911

Boone County has shifted from NIXLE to SMART911. This is a free service that allows you to receive emergency notifications from the county which may include severe weather warnings and traffic alerts. The program will ask for optional personal information that could be used in the event of an emergency situation in your home. Boone County citizens are encouraged to create their Safety Profile with Smart911 today. To create a safety profile and sign up for updates, go to

School Safety

School Visitor Check-Ins at ZCS

Please be aware that we use a visitor management system known as SafeVisitor. SafeVisitor is a 30-45 second check-in process that cross references against all national sex offender registries and prints a visitor badge. Please be prepared to scan a government issued ID (Driver License) when arriving to campus as a visitor or volunteer. The printed badge should be visible at all times while in the building. Thank you!

Please note: Full background checks are still required field trips. Full background checks cost $15.95 and take at least 7-10 days to process. Limited background checks are still required for lunch visits, volunteering in a supervised area, etc.

**Bullying Video**

All volunteers in our district are also required to complete the bullying module, consisting of a short video and a digital signature as proof of watching the video. This video must be watched for either level of volunteer (Full or Limited). Please click here to visit the BRAVO/Volunteers page where all of these items can be completed.
