At the beginning of each school year, parents are inudated by masses of paperwork that must be completed and returned for each child. In this rush to get everything returned in time, some of that paperwork might get forgotten, or misplaced, or simply left on the classroom floor. Despite this, there are three important documents that must be returned before 30 Sep:
(1) Emergency Card with updated addresses and phone numbers. If nothing else, the school needs a working telephone number in case somehting happens during the school day, and we must send your student to the hospital or the custody of some other emergency organization.
(2) Nursing Permission Form with updated phone numbers. If your child needs to make use of our on-site nurse, he or she must have a nursing permission form on file. Without it, the nurse has to turn your child away.
(3) Acceptable Use Policy for Use of School Technology. This document must be on file in order for your child to make use of any of the school's technology, be it laptop computers, desktop computers, iPads, or even just the WiFi for internet access. With the rolling out of the Blended LEarning initiative, this is more important than ever before.
Fortunately for everyone involved, there is an Open House on Monday, 25 Sep, at Westside High School. These forms will be available, and assistance provided in filling out the forms.
Even if you can't make the Open House, please have these forms returned to the school before 30 Sep.
