School Policy Overview
Read below for a brief overview of our health, transportation, lunch and parent reports' policies and procedures. For more information on all of our school's policies, view our School Handbook.
Caring for your child as a whole person means that our policies take careful considerations regarding your child's well-being. Good health is necessary for optimal learning! We encourage parents to take an active interest in maintaining their child’s health by encouraging good sleep habits and providing proper nutrition and healthy meals, including a good breakfast.
Routine physical examinations are expected for all new students and for those in grades 4 and 7. The health examinations are to be done by the family physician or arrangements can be made to have them done at the Dane County Health Department. When possible, the students will receive free vision and hearing screenings on a yearly basis at the school.
Note: No medications of any kind will be administered to students by the school staff without written permission and instructions from the parent.
Updated immunization requirements will be provided to parents before each school year. It is the responsibility of the family to see that the required health examinations and immunizations are given and reported to the school within 30 days upon entering the school. Read the complete health and insurance policy in our Handbook for additional details.
Parents will need to arrange for the transportation of their children to and from school. No bus service is provided by the school or by city transportation routes.
Parents will need to provide students with their own lunches on a daily basis. View the lunch policy in our Handbook.
Reports to Parents
We report progress to parents during each of the four grading periods. The purpose of these reports is to advise parents of the student’s progress and discuss any concerns.
Report cards are issued to parents during the week following each of the four grading periods through our Jupiter Ed online system. Parents should carefully examine these reports for both scholarship and conduct. Additional reports of the student’s progress will be distributed as needed, but will be issued at least once during each period for all students. Visit the Reports to Parents policy in our Handbook for additional details.
Infectious Disease Response
It is of utmost importance that we follow the local recommendations and practices to avoid transfer of germs or virus, and it is also vital that we communicate those practices and any changes to you.
When needed, recommended guidelines will be in effect during the school year and will continue until we are advised by the WI Department of Public Instruction that the precautions are no longer needed.
