    ​​Important Message

    In the case of an emergency that requires full evacuation of the campus, our Sunrise students will be transported to Heritage Middle School for pick up. In the unlikely event that this should occur, parents will be notified promptly of the procedures for pick up.

    Notes from the Clinic:

    We are in bug season now.  Moreover not just flu bugs, or stomach bugs, but head lice bugs.  As with any contagious condition, prevention is key.  Keep your child's hair pulled back if it's long; discourage head to head contact and sharing of brushes, combs, or head gear.

    Please check your child for head lice during routine grooming.  There is no outbreak of lice at this time but I encourage you to be proactive.  The signs of head lice are scratching at the back of the neck and behind the ears.  It appears like a dandruff flake but glued near the base of the hair shaft.  There are many over the counter treatments.  Check with your child's doctor for what they recommend or you may pick up the flyer from your school, "Guide for Head Lice Treatment." 

    If your child has head lice, please notify the school nurse.  If your child is found to have live bugs during school hours, you will be asked to come pick your child up for early dismissal.  Please have updated phone numbers on the emergency card at school.  Should you have any questions, please contact the clinic, or go to the School Health page on the school website for more information at ​https://www.vcsedu.org/student-health-services/common-childhood-diseases​.

    ​Thank you,

    Kelly Arnold, Clinic Assistant ​​​

    Florida KidCare

    Florida KidCare is our state's free or low cost health insurance program that provides comprehensive health coverage for children under 19 years old. Getting health coverage for your children before they become sick is very important. Children need regular check-ups so they can grow strong and healthy. Healthy children do their best at school and play.

    Volunteers

    The Volunteer/Partnership Programs Department replaced the paper Volunteer Application with an online application through the Raptor System.The application in electronic form can be accessed from the Raptor Kiosk at any school or by using any type of computer. The link to the new online application is available on our Website under "Related Links". The online application is available in English and Spanish versions.

    Online Application Instructions

    1. Fill out the online application form on any computer or the Raptor Kiosk at any school. Be sure to use your full legal name and birthdate.
    2. Have your government issued ID scanned at a school or district site. Your ID must match the name and birthdate you provided on your volunteer application.
    3. Once approved, you will receive an e-mail to the address you provided in your application. Approvals are immediate if there are no alerts from the background check.
    4. All volunteer approvals will expire on June 30, 2020, requiring volunteers to renew. Your ID will not need to be scanned again unless your name has legally changed.

    NOTE: The Raptor system that is used to check in visitors and volunteers has been upgraded. Any volunteer who was cleared prior to June 3, 2019 will need to have his/her ID re-scanned. IDs will not transfer as part of this upgrade. A new application will not be required until July 1, 2020.​
