Backpack, Immunizations & Slippers
PRESCHOOL IMMUNIZATIONS - IMPORTANT INFORMATION
All preschool children are required to submit a COPY of their child's immunizations. The immunizations must be appropriately current for the age of the child. All kindergarten age children are required to submit the actual State of South Dakota form included in your packet. You keep the Parent Copy and submit the school copy and the state copy. This form MUST BE turned on or before the first day of school. All elementary students new to Children's House are also required to submit the actual State of South Dakota form or have records transferred from your child's previous school.
KINDERGARTEN & ELEMENTARY REQUIREMENTS FOR FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
All kindergarten & elementary students must have a copy of their birth certificate, a copy of their social security card and a South Dakota Department of Health immunization form completed. These forms must all be in place on the first day of school or entrance into the program may be denied until such time as they are all accounted for.
SLIPPERS FOR SCHOOL
All students, teachers and volunteers are required to wear slippers at school. Wearing slippers assists children with their gross motor development and makes the environment a quiet place to work. Students can wear ballet slippers or plain bedroom slippers. Please DO NOT send character slippers or big fuzzy slippers. These only cause a distraction in the classroom. Please write your child's name clearly on the bottom of the slippers or inside the slippers. Show your child what their name looks like before you bring them to school. Slippers will remain at school. Children will put them on each day after their arrival and take them off at the end of each day and put them in the slipper basket
If we didn't take your child's picture at the Storybook Island event, please mail three pictures of your child to the school by August 22nd. We will use the pictures for their mail boxes, coat hooks and file folders. Pictures should be cut into 2" square and should be a clear picture of your child free of accessories (sunglasses, hats, etc). Please put their name on the back of each picture.
Children should come with a backpack every day. Children will be using a folder to carry important papers to and from school so please ensure their backpacks are big enough to carry a folder. We will try to send all papers home on Wednesday but please check their backpack every day.
