Kindergarten. Please look through it and discuss it with your child.

If you have any questions, please call the school that your child will enter.

Help your child have a good beginning in school.

                                 Registration

Entrance age for kindergarten students shall be five (5) years or more before
the first day of school. Because of individual differences and needs, a child
may enter earlier or later, as determined by EASD early admission policy.

Parents/guardians are encouraged to discuss any of the following items with
the school:

          through special testing programs
       g. After school programs and baby-sitting arrangements
       h. Special transportation arrangements -- for example, perhaps a
          person other than the parent/guardian will transport the child
          to/from school
Kindergarten registration is held each spring. Dates to register your child are
publicized through the media and on the website.

Please bring the following to kindergarten registration:
       a. Birth Certificate, or other official proof of birth

                                                                              7
      b. Completed immunization record/Current Physical
      c. 2 Proofs of residency, such as:
         1. Mortgage or lease agreements. These are
         temporary proof of residence. After thirty (30)
         days, a resident must submit another proof of
         residence. Failure to do so will result in the
         student(s) being removed from the school rolls.
         2.    Driver’s license

          4.  Utility bills

      e. Affidavits of support, if applicable



                              Attendance
Your child is expected to be in school daily, except for those times when
he/she is ill; if there is a death in the family; or in emergency weather
situations, or quarantine.

     IF YOUR CHILD WILL BE ABSENT,
     PLEASE CALL THE SCHOOL OFFICE


Pennsylvania State Law requires that all students who return to school from
an absence MUST have a written note from the parent/guardian within 72
hours, stating the reason for the absence, even after you have called the
school office.

Schools will require a doctor’s excuse for a student who is absent more than
three (3) consecutive days. Remember: doctor’s excuses are needed to return

                                                                           8
to school for strep throat, conjunctivitis, polio, diphtheria, impetigo and
scarlet fever.

If a child arrives in school after the stated time, he/she will be marked
“tardy”. Parents are required to come to the office with the tardy child.
Tardiness also requires a note of explanation from the parent/guardian.




                                                                          9
                       Emergency Information
Weather emergencies for closing, late starts, or early dismissals are broadcast
over local radio and television stations as well as EASD website
www.eastonsd.org. Parents/guardians are requested to tune to one of the
following for information: WEST-1400 AM; WEEX-1230 AM; WAEB-790
AM; WLEV-100.7 FM; WODE-99.9 FM; WCTO-FM. The following
television stations also carry school
 closings: WFMZ 69, WNEP 16,
 and WYOU 22.

In the event that schools close early, AM kindergarten will remain at the
school until dismissal. Lunch will be provided at no cost.

In the event that schools are closed due to an emergency situation such
as weather, it is the parent’s responsibility to have an alternative plan in
place for their child. As in school policy, there needs to be an adult
present at the bus stop to pick up the child. Please note Transportation
Rules as well.

Note that announcements will be made as “EASTON AREA SCHOOL
DISTRICT”, and NOT as individual schools.


    PLEASE DO NOT CALL the school to find out if school is closed!

                      EASD ALERT WEBSITE

This website was created to keep you informed of the latest news alerts from
the school district. This will inform you directly about school closings and
early dismissals that may be due to inclement weather or other school
emergencies. You may register to receive alerts in just two easy steps:

           1.    Create a new account
           2.    Confirm your registration after receiving an email from the
                 system.
After confirmation, you will begin to receive an automated email alert of the
latest news, school closings, delayed openings, early dismissals or school
emergencies.

Note: On occasion it may happen that you do not receive an email from our
system. This may be due to factors that are not in our control (such as your
ISP). If you ever have concerns or questions regarding school closings or
other possible alerts, please check our school district website directly or refer
to typical outside sources such as radio or television.

EASD ALERT should not be the only source for parents to obtain
emergency information.

                      CONNECT-ED SYSTEM
Connect-Ed is an automated phone-calling program designed to provide
information to parents. Principals and other district administrators will
personally manage the message system to make sure you receive only very
important and timely calls. The main purpose of the system is to provide
notification during emergency situations at school. The Connect-Ed system
also allows for community outreach calls concerning upcoming special
events such as state testing, end-of-the-year activities, or other important
information parents need. Some EASD schools will be using the system for
attendance calls as well. If you have further questions about how your
child’s school will use Connect-Ed, please contact the building principal.
                                                                               11

                            Immunizations
Pennsylvania State Law requires that ALL children have the basic
immunizations in order to be allowed to enter school:

      4 doses of Tetanus and Diphtheria (1 dose on or after the 4th
       birthday)
      3 doses of Polio
      2 doses of Measles and Mumps
      1 dose of Rubella
      3 doses of Hepatitis B
      2 doses of Varicella (kindergarten/entrance to school grade and
       grade 7. Varicella #2 is required by 2010/2011)

These requirements allow for medical reasons and religious beliefs. If your
child is exempt from immunizations, he/she may be removed from school
during an outbreak.

                      Head Lice (Pediculosis Capitis)
Policy: The student must be “lice free” and “nit free” to attend school.

Procedure: An informal letter will be sent home in the beginning of each
school year for grades K-4 stating the policy and procedures. A letter for
lower/upper level intermediate and high school students will be optional per
school nurse and principal.
This policy will be published in Elementary Handbooks.
When a possible case of head lice (live or nits) has been reported, the

     The student will be sent to the school nurse and assessed immediately. If live lice
1.   or nits are found, siblings in the school/district will be examined.
2.   The school nurse will call the parents of the infested child and explain exclusion of
     the child from school and treatment.
3.   The nurse will review the following information with the parent/guardian:
          Assist parent to recognize lice/nits
          Give written information of how to care for child and environment –
            including “no nits” policy, parent/adult must bring student to school upon
            return, etc.
          Give letter from principal regarding “two-day excused absence”
          Optional: give shampoo and review instructions
4.   Upon return of the child to school, child will be brought by the parent/adult to
     the school nurse to be examined. If the child is free of live lice and nits, child will
     be re-admitted to school. If the child has live lice or nits, child will be excluded
     with the present adult and instructions will be reviewed.
5.   The child may be periodically checked in school over the next several weeks for re-
     infestation. Parents should be re-checking child also.

     the school nurse will notify the principal. The principal will notify the parents of
     the outbreak with an informational letter and corrective actions. This procedure
     may be modified at the intermediate and secondary levels at the discretion of the
     school nurse and principal.

                        Kindergarten Program
Each activity your child has in Kindergarten is planned to allow sufficient
time for learning. The key to the Kindergarten program is a flexible,
individualized, relaxing program governed by simple and clearly stated rules.

Your child will learn to work and play with others, respect the rights of
others, share in responsibility, and experience the joy of beginning and
completing tasks successfully.

Kindergarten is a well-rounded learning experience. It is the beginning of
your child’s many years of school and therefore very important to the
academic and social growth of your child.


                                                                               16
                               A Typical Day
Kindergarten pupils attend school for half-day sessions, either in the morning
or afternoon. However, Cheston kindergarten students attend full day
kindergarten. The teacher develops a program best suited to each child’s
needs. Because of individual student needs and abilities, no day’s schedule
is exact.

Some of the activities your child may participate in throughout the school day will
include:

       Opening Exercises including weather
        and calendar
       Free Play
       Snack
       Literacy & Math
       Library, Music & Physical Education
       Social Studies, Science & Art are
        addressed throughout the curriculum

           Special Programs
Title I/Early Intervention/Instructional Support/English for Speakers of
Other Languages/Elementary Guidance - In addition to help with
academic instruction, children will be evaluated for special support services
upon recommendation by the teacher or parent/guardian.

                         American Education Week -
                         Parents/guardians are encouraged to visit school
                         classrooms to see what children do in kindergarten.
                         Parent-teacher conferences will be scheduled in
                         November during American Education Week, and
                         also in the spring.

                                                                                 17
Assemblies - Holiday programs, safety presentations, guest speakers etc.
will be incorporated into the regular school programs.

Field Trips - Permission slips for field trips must be signed by the
parent/guardian and retained at the school. Notification of field trips will be
given in advance.

Adapted Physical Education - Physical fitness, muscle development and
coordination are stressed.

                                 Absences

Absences due to family vacation and trips are considered illegal and unlawful
unless the family sends prior written notification to the principal. Written
notification of a family trip needs to be received 10 days in advance of the
trip, and the principal will send written confirmation of the request to the
parent/guardian and teacher. In a given year, the amount of school time
allowed for such trips shall not exceed five days consecutively or
cumulatively per School Board policy.

Family trips exceeding 10 consecutive days may result in your child being
withdrawn from the school. Upon your return you will be required to contact
the Registration Office to re-enroll your child.

Although Take Your Child to Work Day is considered an excused absence,
it does count as an absence and prohibits “Perfect Attendance.”




                                                                             18
           Special Education Identification Activities

evaluation to determine special program needs. A parent/guardian request
form is available through the guidance office in each school. Evaluations are
completed throughout the year in every school in the district.

School buses.




                                                                         23
1. Drivers are instructed to discharge Kindergarten students only at
   designated bus stops.

2. It is expected that parents/guardians or designee will meet the
   kindergarten students at the bus stop and escort them home. Please
   be advised that parents should be at the bus stop 10 minutes prior to
   designated arrival time.

3. Drivers are instructed that NO kindergarten student is to be left at
   the bus stop unless a parent/guardian or designee is in attendance.

4. If kindergarten students are on the bus and are not met by a
   parent/guardian or designee, the driver is instructed to return to the
   school with those students.              It now becomes the
   parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to pick up the student(s) at the
   school.

       If the parent/guardian chooses to designate another adult to
       pick up the child at the bus stop for them, the parent/guardian
       must complete a form, which is available in the school office,
       stating the name, address, phone number, etc., of the person
       who will be responsible for picking up the student at the bus
       stop. If your child will be attending daycare, an alternate
       busing form must be filled out.

5. Parents/guardians are not to attempt to make special arrangements
   with the bus driver since drivers will be prohibited from doing so.



                                                                         24

     to the kindergarten students for transportation purposes ends when
     the students are discharged at the bus stop and the parents/guardians

   Session attendance may be altered due to snow
   We realize that this is a change in your schedule, and arrangements for childcare
    will need to be adjusted. Please call your child’s school office if you have any
    questions regarding the schedule.
   Cheston Elementary School has a full-day kindergarten program

                                 CONCLUSION
Parents/guardians are encouraged to accompany a walking child to and from
school, or to and from the school bus stop (see previous section on
“Transportation”). If your child rides the bus, teach him/her safety rules that
apply. He/She must sit quietly in his/her seat on the bus and follow the bus
safety rules.

Accident insurance is offered at a reasonable cost through the school, and is
optional.

You are always welcome to visit the school. However, it is recommended
that you make arrangements through the principal’s office at least a day
before the requested classroom visit. Be certain to report to the school office
or security desk and sign in as a visitor to obtain a Visitor’s Pass.

Please   -- don’t hesitate to ask questions. Attend PTA meetings, offer to
serve as a room parent/guardian, or contribute to classroom parties, as you
see fit.

Help us to help your child.       By working together, we will be sure
your child gets off to a good start now, and has a successful school
experience.

                                                  Sincerely,

                                                                                       26
