  • The Great Kindness Challenge

    January 22-26, 2018

    Our system will once again participate in The Great Kindness Challenge.  The Great Kindness Challenge is one school week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. This year the challenge will occur during the week of January 22-26, 2018.

    The Great Kindness Challenge has the power to increase empathy, tolerance, and compassion for all students from kindergarten through high school.

    Jill McManigal, Executive Director of Kids for Peace, stated, “When students perform kind act after kind act after kind act, kindness becomes a habit. When kindness becomes a habit, peace becomes possible.”

    Imagine students complimenting each other, reaching out to a lonely child, picking up trash, surprising friends with happy notes in their backpacks, thanking their teachers creatively, and eating lunch with a new group of friends. These kind acts and more will happen in schools throughout our system and across all 50 states during the 2018 Great Kindness Challenge!

  • IMPORTANT 2017-2018 HEALTH ASSESSMENT DOCUMENTATION CHANGE:

    ANY STUDENT WITH  NOTED HEALTH CONDITIONS ON THE HEALTH PORTION OF INFOSNAP/ HEALTH ASSESSMENT FORMS WILL REQUIRE VERIFICATION/ DOCUMENTATION FROM THEIR PHYSICIAN, PRIOR TO THE DEVELOPMENT OR CONTINUATION OF A HEALTH CARE-PLAN.  PLEASE PROVIDE THE LATTER DOCUMENTATION TO YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL NURSE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, PREFERABLY PRIOR TO STUDENTS' FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.

     

    • A Physician's note will be required in order to confirm students' medical diagnosis.
    • This note will NOT be required on an annual basis; however, any medical updates on a student's condition should be provided to the school nurse annually. 
    • Any student whom we do not receive a medical diagnosis confirmation on from the Physician, will be placed in a 'disabled mode' in INOW. 
    • All students prescribed daily and/ or 'as needed' medication, are already required to submit updated Physician orders each school year; therefore, these students will NOT require additional medical documentation.
