News From the Eagle's Nest
In September, students in grades Pre K - 6th will be taking Progress Monitoring 1 of Florida's Assessment of Student Thinking (F.A.S.T.)
Sept. 6th - 3rd - 6th (ELA)
Sept. 7th - 3rd - 6th (Math)
Sept. 12th -VPK - 2nd (ELA)
Sept. 13th - VPK - 2nd (Math)
Please review the following policies with your student before testing:
- Electronic Devices—Students are not permitted to have any electronic devices, including, but not limited to, cell phones, smartphones, smartwatches, and Bluetooth/wireless headphones/earbuds, at any time during testing or during breaks (e.g., restroom), even if the devices are turned off or students do not use them. If your student is found with an electronic device, his or her test will be invalidated.
- Working Independently—Students are responsible for doing their own work during the test and for protecting their answers from being seen by others. If students are caught cheating during testing, their tests will be invalidated. In addition, FDOE employs Caveon Test Security to analyze student test results to detect unusually similar answer patterns. Student tests within a school that are found to have extremely similar answer patterns will be invalidated.
- Leaving Campus—If your student leaves campus before completing a test session (e.g., for lunch, an appointment), he or she will not be allowed to return to that test session. If your student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested on a make-up day. Please remember not to schedule appointments on testing days.
- Testing Accommodations—If your student has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), a Section 504 plan, or is an English Language Learner (ELL) or a recently exited ELL, please contact the school to discuss the testing accommodations that will be provided for your student.

Physical Education plays a crucial role in promoting your child's physical health, coordination, and overall well-being. To ensure their safety and comfort during these activities, it's essential that they wear appropriate footwear. Proper shoes provide the necessary protection to help prevent injuries and enhance their participation in various physical activities. Sneakers or sports shoes with a non-slip sole are highly recommended.
Here are a few key points to consider:
1. Safety First: Wearing the right shoes can help prevent slips, trips, and falls during physical activities.
2. Optimal Performance: The right shoes can enhance your child's performance by providing stability and traction, enabling them to fully participate and enjoy their Physical Education classes.
I value your child's well-being and participation, and proper footwear is a simple yet effective way to contribute to their positive experience during Physical Education.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me. I look forward to a fantastic year of active learning and growth for your child!

SCHOOL ADVISORY COMMITTEE
We have two parent groups at Jupiter. Our School Advisory Committee (SAC) is comprised of community members, parents, staff and administration. This committee reviews our school improvement goals and other important issues such as school safety and security. We also have a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). This committee supports our fund raising efforts and organizes amazing family fun events. Both of these committees meet monthly and all families are welcome to attend. Meeting dates are published on our school website and Facebook page. If you are interested in joining either group, please contact your child’s teacher or call the front office for more information.

- Please, slow down. Safety is everyone's responsibility.
- Follow the traffic all the way down to the roundabout. Please, do not pull into a parking spot before the roundabout and turn around.
- Pull up to the first spot.
- Make sure your child is ready with the backpack on, hugs and kisses done, and ready to hop out.
- Wait until a staff member opens your door.
- Students will exit through the curbside door.
- Do not pass cars that are stopped in front of you.
- Please be sure to have your car tag easily visible when entering the car loop.

SCHOOL WIDE COMMUNICATIONS
We have many ways of keeping you informed and up to date on school events. Jupiter enjoys showing the community the great events at our school and we post important
announcements on our Jupiter Elementary School Facebook Page and our school website located at brevardschools.org/JupiterES . Please also note Brevard Public Schools website brevardschools.org is always current with important information for parents and students as well.
It is important that we have your most current contact information on file in order to receive important messages and updates and have an email address on file as well to receive
important updates. We continually send important messages and updates using a variety of media such as emails, texts and voicemails. If you have opted out of receiving calls, emails and/or text messages in the past and wish to be added back in, please call the front office at 321-952-5990.
ILLNESS AT SCHOOL
ILLNESS AT SCHOOL: Your child will be sent to the clinic to be assessed by clinic staff or office staff if he/she is not feeling well. We always do our best to make students comfortable and at ease, especially when they are sick. You may be requested to come pick up your child from school and it is very important for someone to be available during the school day to come if we call you to take the child home. We ask you to consider these circumstances now and make alternate plans in the event you are not available. Anyone picking up your child from school must be listed as an approved pick-up on the student registration form and health card.
*Please ensure we always have your most current contact information.
In order to ensure a prompt and smooth early checkout experience, please plan to arrive
at Jupiter no later than 2:00 PM Monday - Thursday and 12:45 PM on Fridays. Early checkouts are highly discouraged and as such should be limited to emergencies and appointments only. Students who are consistently checked out early are missing important instructional time and are at risk of falling behind academically. Administration will be requesting to meet with parents of students with frequent early checkouts.
LATE PICK UPS
Any child not picked up on time will be sent to the Jupiter After School Program. There will be a onetime $25.00 registration fee in addition to the $25.00 Drop-In charge.
