Field Day - Wednesday, May 29th
Our Field Day is scheduled for Wednesday, May 29th. Lake Metroparks will be running our Field Day and our PTC has graciously agreed to pay for this activity! The Metroparks will be bringing their own volunteers to help with this event.
Information was sent home with all students on May 1st by grade levels. A Lake Metroparks Disclaimer & Release form was also attached to each packet. This form must be completed and returned to the school office as soon as possible for your child to participate in Field Day. Please refer to the downloads below. Thanks in advance for your continued support.
Grades K – 2 will be participating in a Pirate Adventure activity. The activity will take place from 8:30 - 9:30am. Please make sure your child dresses appropriately for the weather and bring a water bottle. Grades K – 2 have been divided into two teams with no team colors.
Grades 3-5 will be participating in a Survivor Challenge activity. Their activity will take place from 9:45 - 11:15am. All students should dress appropriately for the weather and bring a water bottle. The students were broken down into color groups for grades 3 – 5 and should wear their designated color to school on the 29th. Please refer to the 3-5 teams download.
Last Day of School
Student Health Services
It is a Mayfield School Policy that an adult pick up and drop off medications that are kept at school. You will need to pick up any remaining medication by the last day of school. We cannot store medications over the summer. Medication remaining in the clinic on Wednesday, May 29th, will be disposed of.
If you anticipate your student will need medication for the 2019/20 school year, please have new medication forms completed by the physician before school starts in August. Forms and medication from the previous school year cannot be used.
All Health services forms are located on the Mayfield Schools website at www.mayfieldschools.org, click on Families and then scroll down to and click on Student Health Services. Along the right side will be forms to download and print for your student's specific needs.
For students with medications for allergic reactions: Parents should complete the Mayfield City Schools Allergy Action Plan and a separate medication form for each medication.
Please have all forms and medication at school by August 15, 2019. Forms can be returned to school via fax (440-995-7505) or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, please contact the Clinic (440-995-7503) by May 29th.
Feel free to contact Registrar Laura Cantrell @440-995-7243 with any questions pertaining to registering, or email her at email@example.com.
