Principal Update

Triton Elementary Families,

It is hard to believe that it is the middle of July already. I am excited about the upcoming school year and wanted to send out information that you may need for planning purposes. Although we have seven weeks until school begins, it will be here quickly!

Thank you for taking a few moments to read through the updates below. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions and/or concerns. I am in the office daily throughout the summer.

School Nurse Update- Andrea Possehl

A reminder that immunizations for all students must be completed and documentation handed into the office before the first day of school. There is an immunization form to print on the Triton website that has the complete list of all vaccinations needed. It is also the form for any exemptions to vaccines medical or non-medical, and a place for a physician to sign off on a previous chickenpox infection. You can access these forms by clicking here.

Some other quick reminders from the health office for over the summer:

* Remember to complete annual updates to any action plans, allergies, dietary restrictions, or medication administration forms with the student's provider before the start of school

* Submit authorization to the health office for over-the-counter medications (no aspirin-containing medications, please)

* Add sealed Tylenol, ibuprofen, Benadryl, etc. labeled with the student's name to the health office if you want them available for your student(s)

* Contact me or Tessa in the health office with any concerns, questions, or updates for the upcoming year

I met quite a few parents and students last year and look forward to meeting many more this year! I will be available in the office starting August 29th, and would happily meet with any parents who have any concerns or questions or just want to say "Hi"! I can be flexible as well if daytime hours do not work, and I will be checking my emails off and on until I'm back in the office. I'm looking forward to working with the parents and students to make this a safe and healthy year!! :)

Interview Days

We will hold our traditional interview days on September 6 & September 7. Families will be able to sign up for a time with their student's teacher beginning in August. This sign-up will be part of the August update.

In addition to the interview time, students will be able to take their pictures on these days as well! More information on picture days to come!
