New Camera Doorbell

The district has installed new safety measures at each school which include a camera doorbell. Everyone will enter at the main entrance to each building and use the doorbell to request entrance. Someone in the office will greet you, check your identification and then unlock the door to let you in. Please come to the office to check in directly.

Back To School Night

After School Pick Up

Teachers will send you a placecard with your Child's Last Name and Teacher Name. Have this in your front car window so the staff can easily have your child ready to load.

This is a map of the dismissal routes for your child's grade level, siblings will be ready with the youngest sibling.

Please be prepared to show ID at pick up as well as keeping your child's approved pick up list up to date.

Thank you for your patience and courtesy during pick up.

3 Back to School Tips

  1. Get Back into a Regular Bedtime Routine The National Sleep Foundation recommends that kids between the ages for 6 and 13 get nince to 11 hours of sleep, so plan your child's bedtime to account for earlier mornings. Getting a good night's sleep is crucial to your child's health and ability to learn and play at school.
  2. Plan a Visit to your Family Doctor Make sure your child is up-to-date on any immunizations
  3. Teach the Importance of Washing Hands One of the best ways to prevent the spread of germs at school is to teach your kids just how important it is to wash their hands throughout the day. Let them know that it's especially important to wash their hands:

  • Before eating
  • After sneezing or coughing
  • After playing outside or with toys, which can harbor bacteria

Student Medication

Parents are encouraged to administer medications to their children before and/or after school hours. When a child must take any medication during school hours, and a parent cannot be at school to administer the medication, the parent must obtain a "Daily Medication Administration Record" form from the school. This signed written request is submitted along with the following:

  • The original container with the label containing the name of the medication, dosage, time interval, and method of administration. Prescription medication containers must include the physician's name and written instructions or prescription label.
  • Please do not send medication with your student. All medications (even nonprescription cough drops) must be kept in the school office unless special arrangements have been made.

If your child needs medication at school, please bring it into the office during the first week of school.

ParentSquare - Stay In The Loop With Teacher, School, and District

Aumsville Elementary School is using the ParentSquare platform for district, school and teacher communications, primarily with email, text and app notifications. ParentSquare automatically generates an account for each parent/guardian, using their preferred email address and phone number. Download the app or log into the ParentSquare web portal using the contact email used for your child's school.

Free Breakfast & Lunch for all AES Students!

Thanks to the USDA, Aumsville Elementary will be able to feed all students breakfast and lunch at school for free this year.
