May 28-31, 2013
The STAAR scores are in for 3rd grade Math and Reading, 4th grade Math, Reading, and Writing, and 5th grade Science tests. They are available for parent to view on the parent portal and we will be sending home the confidential student reports home on Tuesday, May 28. We are proud of how hard our students worked on those tests.
Good luck this weekend to all of those students in Kinder through 5thgrade who will be representing us in the City Wide Bike Rodeo. Go Tigers! Represent us well!
We will be working with Girl Scout Junior Group #1109 to collect money for the families who were affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. Bring in your loose change to support those families.
The END OF THE YEAR Procedure-
Please be aware that NEISD will implement a cafeteria change on May 13, 2013. Students with negative cafeteria balances will no longer be allowed to charge meals. If students have negative balances, they will be given a peanut butter or cheese sandwich for lunch. Charges will be allowed again in the fall!
From the School Nurse:
On or before the last day of school, please pick up your child’s medication. The medication cannot be sent home with your child. No exceptions to this procedure will be made. Any medication not picked up by the last day of school will be properly disposed of by Health Services if other arrangements have not been made. Should other arrangements be necessary, please contact the school nurse.
If your child will require medication at school next year, it must be brought to school by an adult.
North East Independent School District policy prohibits students from transporting medication to and from school. All medication must be in the current and properly labeled prescription or medication container. Medication administered at school must be accompanied by the district’s Medication Administration Request Form. This form authorizes school personnel to administer prescribed daily or as needed medication and must be signed by you and your child’s physician. This form is available from your school nurse or from the NEISD Health Services web page (Medication Forms).
We want all students to know the proper use of medication and that misuse of any medication can have potentially serious consequences. All prescription medications and over the counter medications must be treated carefully and cautiously. Your student’s safety is our priority.
Thank you very much for your cooperation in this matter. If you have a question regarding medication for next year or picking up the medication at the end of this year, please call your school nurse.
