    PLANNED 2019-2020 PARENT ENGAGEMENT ACTIVITIES

     

     

    WAE'S 2019-2020 SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT PLAN

     

    REPORT CARDS 

    Report cards are sent home quarterly.  See the Calendar for dates. 

    INTERIM REPORTS

    Interim reports are sent home midway through the nine weeks. 

    CONFERENCES

    Conferences are important.  We urge you to request a conference any time you have questions about your child's progress.  please make an appointment with the teacher prior to your visit in order to avoid conflict with other scheduled meetings and conferences. 

    FIELD STUDIES

    Field studies are provided to enhance classroom instruction.  Buses are provided for most trips, but if chaperones are transporting students they must show proof they meet insurance and vehicle requirements.  Chaperones must have a district-approved volunteer form on file. Younger siblings may not accompany parents on field studies.  For safety reasons, students who repeatedly fail to follow school rules may lose the privilege of going on field studies.  A parent/guardian may be requested to attend a field study as a condition of their participation if the child has misbehaved on prior field studies, has difficulty following class rules, or has three or more office referrals during a nine week period.   A district-approved volunteer application must be on file before a parent can accompany a child on a fieldtrip.  Certain field studies are subject to approval  by the School Board.  Even though organized and supervised by a member of the faculty, a particular activity may not be actually sponsored an approved by the School Board.  Parents/guardians should contact the principal when they have questions about the sponsorship of any activity. 

    TEXTBOOKS

    It is the responsibility of students to take good care of the books assigned to them.  Students are expected to pay for damaged or lost books. 

    MEDIA CENTER

    The media center is available to students during the school day.  Students are responsible for paying for lost or damaged library books.

    UPDATING PERSONAL DATA

    Emergency information is kept on file in the school office.  This includes address, home and work telephone number, and names and phone numbers of persons to be called should we be unable to reach a parent or guardian in the event of an emergency.  all changes of address or telephone numbers should be reported to the school immediately.

    ​ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION

    At the request of the parent AND the child's doctor, clinic personnel will administer prescription or non-prescription medication, if the parent has completed the form, "Authorization to Administer Medication to Students by School Personnel."  A doctor's signature is required on the form. For safety reasons, medication should be brought to school by an adult.  Students are not permitted to keep their own medication unless a doctor has prescribed that the child should self-administer (e.g. an asthma inhaler).  The clinic health technician can only administer medication for which she has authorization from a physician. 

    BICYCLE RIDERS

    If your child rides a bike to school, we recommend a strong lock as a precaution against theft.  Students may park their bicycles only in the designated area.  Bicycles are to be walked, not ridden, on school grounds.  Bicycle riders are required by law to wear helmets. 

    TRAFFIC PROCEDURES

    Kindergarten children are to be dropped off and picked up at the west end of the building. Other students may be dropped off and picked up at the east end of the building.  The circular drive in front of the school is reserved for school buses. 

    CHANGES IN THE WAY YOUR CHILD USUALLY GOES HOME

    If a change must be made in the way your child usually goes home, be sure to notify the teacher in writing.  Please avoid calling the school to leave messages for your child unless it is an emergency.  It interferes with the flow of instruction when we have to interrupt to deliver messages. 

    BUS TRANSPORTATION

    Only designated bus students may ride on a school bus.  Stops within the same route may be changed for emergency reasons if pre-approved by the principal. 

    CHECKING OUT STUDENTS DURING SCHOOL HOURS

    If a student must leave school before the end of the school day, his/her parent/guardian must go to the office to sign him/her out.  Identification is required.
