A Note from the Health Office
According to Board of Education Policy 7:100 Health, Eye, and Dental Examinations, Immunizations, and Exclusion of Students and the Illinois School Code, students who do not provide proof of receiving the required immunization and/or exam are excluded from school on October 16. Students new to Illinois schools, who register midterm, are allowed 30 days following registration to comply with the health requirements. Mrs. Campbell has reached out to any families that are still in need of a completed physical form. Thank you for your attention to this important matter.
The PTA meeting will be in the library on Wednesday, October 18 at 7 PM. We will be discussing all the things to come this fall/winter and would love to see you! We are doing a grade race - every parent that comes will note the grade of his or her child(ren), and the grade who has the most representation will win something for all of the teachers in that grade!
Trunk or Treat
Trunk or Treat is coming up on October 27 from 4:30-6:30 PM. Tickets are available at https://bit.ly/FCWTrunkOrTreat. Get your tickets by October 21 to guarantee a pumpkin and donut! Note: There is a $3 platform fee that you will need to manually change to "other amount" and put to $0 if you do not wish to donate to the ticket platform.
We are also looking for parents to host trunks! You will get up to $25 reimbursement and there will be a trunk competition with a prize! See flyers below.
