Dear Everitt Families:
What a beautiful day today!
Today, we had a visit from our partners at CDE. We applied for and won a grant that gives us support from CDE partners for the next three years and additional funding to do the amazing things that we want to do for students. Today, the team spent the day observing in classrooms and meeting with staff to better understand our school. We are excited about this partnership and the opportunities that it will open up for our students and staff.
Our students took the reading MAP test this week in their language arts classes. Next week, they will be taking the math MAP test. The results from these tests are given to students immediately so please ask them how they did!
Camp Everitt is shaping up to be an amazing experience this summer. Our school team and our community partners are working hard to prepare a fun week of exploring "Making Waves." A link to sign up can be found below.
We have many, many fun end-of-the-year events coming up. Be sure to put the dates on your calendar so that you don't miss them.
Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!
Amanda Pouliot, Principal
Everitt Middle School

FROM THE HEALTH ROOM
It is time to get ready for SUMMER BREAK!
If your student has medication in the health room, the Jeffco District Board Policy JLCD, states:
Unused medication: It is the responsibility of the parent to obtain all unused medication from
the school when the medication is expired, discontinued, the school year ends, or the family
transfers to another district. All medication left in the school under these circumstances will be disposed of using district guidelines and monitoring by the district RN.
This includes all prescription and over-the counter medications including but not limited to:
cough drops, cough syrup, Tylenol, EpiPen, inhaler, insulin, and any other injectable
Please note: This includes any closing school!
If you, as the parent, are not able to pick-up the medication in person, please call your district
RN to discuss alternative arrangements.
If your child will be in summer school (JSEL or ESY) this summer, please pick up the medication as noted above; the current medication agreement form will be copied and put in a Ziploc along with the medication. You will need to bring this Ziploc bag to your child’s first day of summer school at the site he/she is attending and check it in with the health aide.
Please pick up ALL medications by the last day of school which is May 26, 2023. All medications left in the school health room will be disposed of according to Jeffco policy. If you have any questions, feel free to call your school health aide at the following number: 303-982-1565.
Thank you and have a good summer!
