Summer News from Anderson School

The Sky's the Limit! Have fun! Read every day!

Dear Anderson Families,


Summer vacation is here! Our students have learned so much this year, both at school and at home! Thank you for your deeper partnership in education during these days of Remote Learning. All Anderson Parents deserve Gold Medals and a Vacation for being a Teacher/Parent over the past 8 weeks. You guys rock!


The staff at Anderson wishes you a safe and happy summer, one filled with continued learning through reading, wondering, exploring, and writing. Look for those opportunities to have your students apply their newly learned skills in your everyday routines. Take time to read daily and to enjoy leisurely conversation afforded us by long summer nights. Write letters and have your child keep a journal. These simple routines can help maximize their summer learning.


Enjoy your additional family time! Let's all remember to put down our phones and spend some quality time with your children. Take them on a hike, bike ride, fishing, play board games and have a campfire. :)


Be on the lookout for 2020-2021 School Year Plans as we get more guidance from our governmental and educational leaders at the state level and district level.


Have fun! Read Every Day!

Mr. Jarot


PS. Remember to log into the Home Access Center to view your child's report card. Click here to log in. If you can't remember your login information, please call our school office. We are happy to help. 331-228-3300. We trust as report cards are posted on May 28th you will take the opportunity to reflect with your child on their learning and growth this school year.

Mr. Jarot lost the bet!

We met our goal to raise over $4500 to support St. Baldricks in their fight against cancer. I was true to my word, that if we met our goal, I would spend the day wearing a leprechaun costume. I had some explaining to do with all of my neighbors. However my sons loved it. :)

Thanks Anderson Community for being so generous and helping others.

Our kids are watching. Our kids are learning. Thanks for modeling compassion.

All Students Need to Register for 2020-2021!

As of today, we have 179 students registered. Thanks if you got it done. If you haven't yet, you still have time to get it done before Mr. Jarot register's his own children for their school. :) The gentle reminders will continue!


Returning Student Registration for 2020-2021 has moved to an online format that will open on April 27. In years past, parents completed the necessary paperwork in paper format. This year, all acknowledgments and authorizations are contained in a single electronic, online registration form that will be easily accessible from most electronic devices (computer, Chromebook, and Smartphones).


Beginning April 27, parents can sign into the Returning Student Online Registration form using their Home Access Center (HAC) credentials, select individual students, and complete their registration. The form will be located in the Parents/Community menu of the District website.


Registration fees for elementary and middle school will be available in Pushcoin beginning April 27, and billed to reflect the early bird discount of $10.00 if paid by May 22. High School fees will be available in June. For families who may qualify for a fee waiver, and are not directly certified by the state, a 2020-2021 district fee waiver application will be available on the District 303 website in July, accessible from the Parent/Community menu.

SCHOOL FEES/FOOD WAIVER


SCHOOL FEES WAIVER:

The school fees waiver will ONLY be a PAPER application since there is financial documentation required for income verification. Important to note, there will be no reduced fees next year. A family can only qualify for a free waiver of fees. The application will be located on the district website in July. Questions regarding school fee waivers - Sharon Wlezien at 331-228-5417


FOOD WAIVERS:

Only one application needs to be completed for each household. Please include ALL family members that live in the household (even those not attending a school). In July, ONLINE applications will be posted on the district website. In addition, paper applications will be available at the schools and the Administration Building as in years past. Unlike the school fees, families can qualify for Reduced. Questions regarding FOOD WAIVERS - Patti Townsend 331-228-6529


A few things to note:

● Free/Reduced applications will be sent by mail during July to each household who previously qualified for the program.

● Families directly certified by the State of Illinois for the 2020-2021 school year will receive FREE FOOD and their FEES will be WAIVED.

○ If your family is qualified by the state, do NOT need to complete either application.

○ You will receive an approval letter in the mail.
