“Out of this world fun for the entire family!“
Don’t forget to pick up medications your student has in the school office.
Any medications left after the last day of school will be discarded.
The 2019-2020 school year starts on Wednesday August 28th. If your child has health concerns, please visit with the School Nurse the week before school starts. Remember that each school year you must fill out a new Medication Consent Form for any medication given at school. Inhalers are to be in the box with the prescription label, prescription medications in pharmacy labeled bottle, and over-the counter medications in original container.
If your child has a special dietary restriction or food allergy, a note signed by your health care provider is needed and a visit with RCAS Food Service Director is required for substitutions to be made in the school lunch.
CAUTION: With Birthday Celebrations coming up, please keep in mind that we have several students with life threatening food allergies and food related health problems. ONLY food commercially prepared and packaged with an ingredient label are permitted. NO food with nuts or peanuts, or peanut and tree nut oils are to be brought into the classroom.
Please check your child’s account for current balances.
You can pay online or send money to school with your child.
Parents – please help us keep Meadowbrook Elementary safe and secure every day by coming to the main office whenever you come into the building. Lisa and Lori are there to help you and will ensure your student gets their lunch, instrument, homework, library book, etc.
We need your help! Many of our students have cell phone watches now and we have found the need to revisit the cell phone policy from our district Elementary Student Handbook to ensure students are not using these during the school day.
Page 34 of the 2018-2019 handbook states “cell phones may not be used in the building during the school day and they must be turned off and placed in backpack or locker. If students are in violation of this rule, the cell phone will be considered a nuisance object. Students that must make a phone call must use the office phone.”
If your student has a cell phone/watch that they wear to school, please discuss the above policy with them so they understand they are not to be used for texting or calls during the school day.
Thank you for your help with this!
2019-2020 School Year:
Due to the excessive number of personal requests for teachers, we will NOT be taking any for the 2019-2020 school year. Since we are unable to accommodate each request, in all fairness, we will be eliminating this process.
Returning student registration will be open on May 1st. Go into your family access account to complete your students for the 2019-2020 school year. If your student is moving and will not be at Meadowbrook next year, please call at in the Office at 394-1821.
Notice to Parents of 5th Grade Students:
- Before students can enter 6th grade, they are required to receive the following immunizations given after their 11th You must provide the Middle School office with a health record documenting these vaccines were given to your child.
Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis vaccine)
MCV4 (meningococcal Vaccine)
- A health physical is required to participate in school extracurricular athletic activities. A Health Physical Form, signed by a health care provider, must be given to the Middle School office before the student will be allowed to participate.
