With cold and flu season upon us here is a reminder of our attendance policies from our handbook. Thanks for your cooperation in getting notes from the Doctor’s office anytime your child is seen by a physician.

• Any student that misses three or more consecutive days of school, excluding absences that have been previously approved by administration, will be required to present a note from the doctor’s office indicating they have received treatment during the absence.  Failure to do so will result in the absences being unexcused.

• Students shall be permitted NO MORE THAN FIVE EXCUSED ABSENCES PER SEMESTER BASED UPON PARENTAL CONFIRMATION FOR THE REASONS OF THE ABSENCE.  After the student has been excused five times during a semester, additional absences will only be excused through verification from a written medical statement by a physician.  After the five excused absences, the school will notify the parent/guardian. If a student absence is verified by a doctor’s excuse before the student has reached the limit of five days (or classes) of excused absences, the absence will not count toward the five days permitted by this section.  All doctor’s excuses must be submitted to the main office within 48 hours of the student absence.

Looking Ahead:

There is no school on Monday, March 6 for Casimir Pulaski Day.

Blue and White Night is Saturday, March 18th from 4-8pm This fun evening will include a pulled pork meal, carnival games and food, inflatables, student art, and a silent auction. Please make plans to attend!

Kindergarten Registration for the 2017-2018 school year will be held on Monday, March 20, 2017 between the hours of 7:30 A.M. to 5:30 P.M. at the Primary School Office.  Students do not need to attend. Parents who know their child will be attending kindergarten at Nashville Primary School next fall will need to fill out a registration packet, to get the packet ahead of time please stop by the Primary School Office or call 327-4304 ext. 100 and one can be mailed to you.

Nashville Primary School will be hosting a birth to five screening clinic on Thursday, April 6th and Friday, April 7th.  If you have children under five years of age, please consider making an appointment for the screening.  If your child will be attending our PreK next fall, this is the first step in the registration process. Please call the middle school office for your appointment, 327-3055 ext. 200.
