• Message from School Nurse
    Cold and Flu season is rapidly approaching and we are asking for your help in keeping your child as healthy as possible. Encourage children to eat a balanced diet, including plenty of fruits and vegetables and drink 6- 8oz. glasses of water a day.
  • Message from School Nurse
    One of the MOST important things to do is wash your hands to prevent the spreading of germs. If your child does get sick and runs a fever, he/she may be carrying something very contagious. We are advising parents to keep children home during the course of a fever of 100 degrees or greater and until they are fever free for 24 hours. If your child has any other symptoms such as vomiting or diarreah with or without temperature it is advisable to keep your child home until symptom free for 24 hours.

Bear News for September, 2015

Car Riders

Most of you have received a name tag for your vehicle if you pick up your child by car. Please contact the school if you did not receive one. Preferably a note sent to teachers listing all of your children on one note. Thank you for your cooperation and patience that you have shown during our car pick-up. Our main concern is for our students. Everyone is working together to make our car pick-up work more efficiently.


8th Grade Class Rings

Balfour will be at the school on Sept 9 to take deposits and size students rings. The deposit is $40.00. Please make checks and money orders payable to Balfour.


Dismissal Information

Students are designated as a bus/car rider in order for that student to be dismissed at different bells. Students going home a different way or with another student must provide a note with parent permission from both sets of parents. PLEASE AVOID PHONE CALLS TO THE OFFICE CONCERNING DISMISSAL UNLESS IT IS AN EMERGENCY. Please make your child aware of any different arrangements before they come to school and send a written note to the teacher.


New Attendance Policy

School attendance and promptness to classes are important to the Henderson County School System. Time on task is essential if students are to succeed in their educational efforts. The right to attend public school places the responsibility on pupils and their parents to strive for perfect attendance. Tardiness, absences, check-outs and suspensions are all problems that require action by the school officials because each of these results in a loss of time on task.

Absences shall be classified as either excused or unexcused as determined by the principal or his/her designee. After 5 days is unexcused absences or tardies, the parent will be contacted by the principal or his/her designee. When the student accumulates 7 unexcused days or tardies, the student and parents/guardians will be summoned to appear before the Truancy Committee. Parental Permission absence shall be recorded as UNEXCUSED. Full details are in the agenda and handbook.


Health Screenings

Coordinated School Health Screenings will be conducted on Sept. 9 for all even grades. Please be sure to wear your glasses if you have them.


Parent-Teacher Conference

Parent-Teacher Conferences are schedules for Thursday, Sept 17 from 1 pm to 7 pm. Teacher will be in staff development meetings that morning and will be unable to begin conferences until 1:00. We hope to see you there.


Study Tip

Kids are more successful in school when parents take an active interest in their homework - it shows kids that what they do is important. One tip when helping with homework is to make sure kids do their own work. They won't learn if they don't think for themselves and make their own mistakes. Parent can make suggestions and help with directions, but it is a kids job to do the learning.
