Registration and Pre-Screening
Kindergarten registration and pre-screening make-up day is April 15th. Please call the school for an appointment. You will need to bring your child’s:
- Birth Certificate
- Immunization Records
- Social Security Card
- Proof of Residency, and Custody Papers (if applicable)
Your child also needs to attend the screening process.
Please remember that
are to be dropped off prior to 8:30am
There is NO SUPERVISION.
Parents are encouraged to pull all the way up at the curb in the morning as this will allow multiple students to exit vehicles at the same time.
Additionally, there is NO PARKING in the FIRE LANE afterschool. This is a constant reminder yet it continues to occur. Safety is priority!
EVERY MONDAY the ENTIRE school will be wearing our BE A BUDDY NOT A BULLY t-shirts (compliments of PTO) and EVERY class will be having grade-appropriate lessons. Be a Buddy Not A Bully T-shirts EVERY MONDAY!
Olweus Definition of Bullying:
“Bullying is when someone repeatedly and on purpose says or does mean or hurtful things to another person who has a hard time defending himself or herself.”
Three Key Components of Bullying Behavior:
-Involves an aggressive behavior
-Typically involves a pattern of behavior repeated over time
-Imbalance of power or strength
EARLY DISMISSAL, APPOINTMENTS and TRANSPORTATION CHANGES
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in our efforts to minimize afternoon interruptions. We ask that any appointments you make for your child be scheduled on a day and time as to not interrupt the day (such as in-service days for teachers). Early dismissals from school interfere with the learning process (not only for your child but the other students in the class as well), so we ask that you only pick-up your child from school when it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Early dismissal for “convenience” sake is not permitted or considered an “excused” absence.
In addition, transportation changes should be accompanied with a note in the morning. We cannot guarantee a phone message or email can be delivered in a timely manner if done so in the late afternoon or last minute.

In the event you are having trouble paying your child’s school fees, please
give Mrs. Miller a call (330-482-5355). She will be able to assist you in
regard to unpaid fees and charges.
Payment: Payment for school lunches will be done on the Point of Sale register. Students have established accounts and can make deposits to the accounts at any time. Parents can also monitor student lunch history.
Menu: The menu will change monthly. The trays will be prepared with a main dish, side dish, fruit and milk. The only substitute will be a lunchmeat sandwich in place of the main dish. Students will be able to purchase homemade cookies for $0.25. If your child does not like what is being served, he/she should bring a packed lunch to school.
Breakfast: Breakfast is available until 8:50 a.m. Money for breakfast should be added into the Point of Sale account same as lunch. Those who get free lunch also receive free breakfast. See menu for details and choice selection and visit www.Mylunchmoney.com to access your child’s lunch account.
Beverages: Carbonated beverages tend to “explode”. Please send juice or other non-carbonated beverages or buy milk in the cafeteria.
Peanut Free Zone: As a precaution for students with severe nut/peanut allergies, no oils or foods with peanuts or peanut butter will be used or offered by the cafeteria kitchen. You can still pack your child’s lunch w/peanut butter as the lunchroom will be carefully monitored with peanut free seating available.
