Board of Education Meeting at the Union Township Civic Center:
Monday, March 13th at 7:00pm. All are welcome; this is a great opportunity to hear about the happenings in West Clermont and the progress of our new and updated schools.
Cases: If you order a case for your student(s) they will be handed out as we receive them. Following are a few tips for the cases!
- Put your name in numerous places on the case.
- Always use your case when traveling between classes.
- At the end of the day your case should be put in your locker and the chromebook plugged into the cart to be charged overnight.
Insurance: Insurance is always available to purchase for $15.00. Once the money is received, it will take effect 7 days later.
Schoology and Progress Book:
Both of these programs have ICONS available on the APP store. All of our students and parents can access Schoology from any computer.
Immunization Requirements! Attention All 6th Grade Parents/Guardians
All students entering the 7th grade in the fall of 2017 are required to show proof of receiving the Tdap and Meningicoccal (MCV4) vaccines BEFORE attending school. Please see the attached letter and form to be completed by your child’s physician. If you have any questions, please contact the health clinic at 947-7703. Form is attached. /userfiles/922/my files/2017-2018 6th grade tdap men letter and form.pdf?id=8676
Per district policy, students may not bring any medications to school. All medications, even over the counter, must have an AUTHORIZATION for MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION form completed by a physician and the parent. Students have been bringing medications to school to administer themselves. This can be a very dangerous situation if meds are not controlled properly. The form needed can be found on the district website or in the school office.
Morning Drop Off:
Please be aware of the traffic patterns and procedures in the morning. We have had some close calls endangering our students. Do not pass other vehicles and follow the directional signs.
8th grade students:
Were you excited after the field trip to Live Oaks in November? Interested in learning more about a specific career field? Worried you’ll be bored this summer? If you answered YES to any of these questions, you should check out the Great Oaks Summer Camps being offered this June. For just $50 you’ll be able to attend a 5-day program and go in-depth to learn about career opportunities that are a lot of fun!
