While PowerSchool is working to resolve this issue, parents can still access the Parent Portal through a web browser on a tablet, computer, or your mobile device. The link to the Parent Portal is available at spart6.org under Parents & Students. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Prescriptions from Nurse Beth
All students are required to have an up-to-date immunization certificate on file in order to stay in school. If you have been contacted about this, please make sure this is taken care of no later than Friday, September 14th.
If your child has been ill, remember the 24 Hour Rule of Thumb:
· 24 hours fever free without any fever reducing medications (Tylenol, Motrin) for 24 hours before returning to school
· 24 hours without nausea, vomiting, & diarrhea (and tolerating a normal diet)
· 24 hours of receiving medication such as antibiotics, eye ointment/drops
Remember students may not transport medications to and from school. A parent/guardian must bring in all medications.
Let’s stay healthy! Studies have shown that school absenteeism due to illness is reduced when good hand washing is practiced (before & after eating, after restroom use & playing outside).
It is my privilege to care for your child while here at school. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have.
