With the temperatures increasing outside, students need to drink more often. We have MANY children coming to the office for cups daily because they forgot to bring theirs. Please help students remember to pack a reusable mug/water bottle for water each day.
Parents: School Supplies for the 2021-2022 School Year
Posted by Website Editor on 4/8/2021 12:00:00 PM
Can you believe it's already time to begin planning for the next school year? We are flying through this one.
We will be sending home an EPI School Supplies order form will all PreK-4th grade students today. You can get your school supplies a number of ways.
1. Order online through EPI following the instructions on the form until June 13th. See image for website and School ID code.
2. Complete the form and send it back to school with cash, check, or money order and we will order for you until June 3rd.
3. Look at the back of the form, find your child's grade, and buy your own supplies - NOTHING has to be the name brand listed.
We have worked hard to ensure that we kept supply costs low. All supply packs purchased online or through the school will be delivered to the school and put in the child's homeroom for the 2021-22 school year. Our school does not earn any monies from this sale. We only do this to add a convenience to parents.
If you have not taken the time to complete our school survey, please do. We've had 57 responses and need more by this Thursday. Thank you so much for taking the time needed to help us address school issues and celebrate victories.
We're going to have a Summer Adventure Camp for any of our current Pre-K to 5th grade students June 7th to 22nd, 7:30 am to 12:30 pm. Bus transportation will be available. Students will have breakfast and lunch.
This will be a time of PE, fun ART activities, and concept development in ELA, Math, Science, and Social Studies. This is NOT the typical school day!!!
AND......students don't have to wear uniforms - they have to wear school appropriate clothes.
We're excited! So.....what do you need to do.......fill out the student application attached here (going home today, Monday, March 15th) and send back. THE ONLY REASON A CHILD MIGHT NOT GET IN IS NOT HAVING ENOUGH PROVIDERS AVAILABLE. So.....send in your application so we can get started getting enough providers.
Today, 3/10/2021, we were notified that an individual at Wyandotte Elementary has tested positive for COVID-19. We are sharing this message with you as a courtesy in an effort to keep you fully and accurately informed. Upon notification, school leaders immediately contacted local public health officials and are strictly following their guidance to address the situation.
Accordingly, school leaders have been in direct contact with any employee and the family of any student(s) who were in close contact with this individual. Close contact is defined by public health officials as being within six feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hr period.
As a precaution, the school is also enhancing cleaning efforts to conduct a deep cleaning and disinfecting of the school. It is especially important to note that our students and staff have taken every precaution to maintain social distance, frequently wash hands, continuously clean high touch surfaces, and wear masks as required.
Public health officials do not recommend any other actions or the self-quarantining of any additional students or staff at this time. However, school officials will continue to monitor the situation and update you with any further information as needed.
We also want to mention that due to privacy laws, including HIPPA and FERPA, the school is unable to share the name of the person who has tested positive. Please know that the individual has been instructed to follow all recommended guidelines and will not be allowed to return to school until the completion of these health and wellness protocols.
As you know, we should all be prepared for positive COVID-19 cases to occur as long as the virus is present in our community. We planned for this likelihood before the school year began and remain confident in the school’s daily implementation of public health regulations. We will continue to operate in close collaboration with local public health officials and will keep you updated if any further information is received.
It has been over a year since COVID-19 made its first appearance in our area. In response to thevirus, we have adapted to new daily routines to help stay safe and healthy: keep your distance, wear a mask, and wash your hands. A few months ago, several vaccines becameavailable, and the scammers of the world saw an opportunity. Because of these quick-thinking scammers, our new daily routines should also include keeping a watchful eye on our bank accounts and personal information and making smart decision when it comes to sharing personal information.
“Fraudsters are always looking to take advantage of significant world events. The COVID-19 pandemic and its corresponding rapid digital acceleration brought about by stay-at-home orders is a global event unrivaled in the online age,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president of Global Fraud Solutions at TransUnion.
According to Colleen Tressler, the scammers’ newest attempt toswindle your personal information involves sending phony vaccine surveys. Ms. Tressler is with the FTC’s Division of Consumer and Business Education and in her article, she states that these opportunistic scammers are sending emails and text messages with links to surveys. These surveys appear to be legitimate, but it is all an elaborate ruse to steal your personal data. Her advice to avoid being scammedis simple:
Do not click on any links or open attachments.
Do not call or use the number in the email or text.
Do not give out your banking account, credit card, or personal information.
In the same way that we are vigilant in protecting our health, we must also be vigilant in protecting our financial and personal information. Just like viruses, scammers are out there looking for a weak spot to capitalize on – inoculate yourself against these scammers by keeping your information private.
