KIDS TODAY FALL 2015

Welcome to the

2015 Back to School Fair

2015-16 School Year!

It is with great anticipation that I welcome you to this edition of Kids Today! I hope you and your family have enjoyed the summer. As a first year acting superintendent, I am not unlike many of our students, feeling enthusiasm and excitement about the approaching first day of school. On that day, students will begin the process of becoming acquainted with their new teachers, new schedules and new surroundings. With anticipation can come apprehension, and so it is our intent to provide helpful information in this booklet to prepare families for the coming school year. Our facilities staff have labored all summer, performing maintenance tasks on buildings and grounds. A lot of effort and planning has gone into the advent of All Day Kindergarten, from preparing learning spaces to procuring classroom furniture and instructional materials to hiring teachers. Please take a few moments to read through the information presented in this booklet. Don’t hesitate to contact your student’s school office or the district office with any questions you may have. I am honored to be part of this wonderful community and have every intention to continue building on an already tremendous culture. Thank you for all you do to help our students! Sincerely, Gary Neal, Superintendent

Notification of Rights under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Policy 3231 - The family Educational Rights and Privacy

Act (FERPA) affords parents and students over 18 years of age (“eligible students”) certain rights with respect to the student’s education records. They are: 1) The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the School receives a request for access. Parents of eligible students should submit to the School principal [or appropriate school official] a written request that identifies the record(s) they wish to inspect. The School official will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected.

2) The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the parent or eligible student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Parents or eligible students may ask the School to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. They should write the School principal [or appropriate official], clearly identifying the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the School decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the School will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing. 3) The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

Food Service

The Sequim School District recognizes the School Food Service Program as an integral part of the school day. Sequim Schools offer an approved lunch and breakfast program. This program provides for nutritious, balanced hot meals daily at all levels. The meals are nutritionally balanced with lunch meeting one-third the recommended daily nutrition requirement. Free and reduced-price meals are available to students whose families meet certain federal income requirements. Check with your local school for income guidelines and application forms. Information on the application form is confidential and will only be used to determine eligibility for school district food service programs. Breakfast and lunch prices are as follows:

Student Meal Grades K-5 Grades 6-8 Grades 9-12

Breakfast $1.30 $1.40 $1.50

Lunch $2.25 $2.45 $2.50

Adult Meal

$2.25

$3.50

Student Meal - Reduced Priced Meals Breakfast Lunch Grades K-3 Lunch All Others 0.00 0.00 $.40 Milk 0.00 0.00 $.50

Free/Reduced Lunch Program

It is important to complete the Free/Reduced Price Meal Application if there is a chance that your student(s) may qualify. The income guidelines change yearly and are set at the federal level, not at the district level. New applications are required to be completed every year for your student(s) to remain eligible for this program. Only one application per family is required. Applications are available online in Skyward Family Access, which requires families to login. It is strongly recommended that the application be submitted through that format. Contact your school’s building secretary if assistance is needed using the electronic application. For the first 30 meal operating days of the new school year, your student(s) will be at the same status that they were in June of the previous year. It is very important that the new applications are returned to the school in a timely manner for your student(s) to continue receiving free or reduced priced meals. Once your new, completed application is received, you will be notified by the school district if you continue to qualify for the program. After 30 meal service days (October 14 for the 2015-16 school year) have passed and there is no new application on file for your student, he or she will be removed from the program and your family will be expected to pay full price for their meals. Parents are responsible for the student’s account until approved for the program. A computer is available to families for submitting the online application in the technology department office. Paper applications are also available at your student’s school office. For more information, call the district office at (360)582-3260.

mid-day Kindergarten run. Schedules will be posted on the district website, at the schools, and printed in the local newspaper in advance of school beginning. The first week schedules and bus stops may be adjusted slightly as bus routes are fine-tuned with respect to times and students rider numbers. General Guidelines - If your student rides a school bus, parents are asked to review general bus rules with their students. Those rules and regulations are distributed the first week of school by your bus driver and need to be signed are returned to the driver. Children Walking to School - Parents plan a Safe Route to School with your child. Caution them to choose intersections for crossing that are regulated by stop-and-go signals, traffic signs, or intersections that are designated with school crossing signs with good visibility in good directions. Sequim School District reserves the right to change bus routes and times as needed. Students in grades K-12 ride on buses together. Please check your student’s bus route and pick-up time listed. First day of school: The Transportation Department strongly encourages all students who intend to ride the bus do so on the morning of the first day of school (September 1, 2015). This will enable parents, students and bus drivers to become familiar with the bus stop routine. Students who plan to ride the bus need to be at their stop five minutes ahead of pick-up time. Times and pick-up points listed below are approximations until exact enrollment and passenger loads are fixed. Students need to be at bus stop 5-7 minutes before posted time. Please remember, if a bus passes waiting students, it may not be their bus. For the first day, new students will be picked up at all stops along routes, except for Hwy 101 East and West routes. The following are routes, not necessarily bus stops. Students will be advised after two or three days where the permanent bus stop will be. Every effort will be made to space stops approximately one-half mile apart, thus requiring a quarter-mile walk along routes. Exceptions will be made only on a case-by case basis due to special circumstances such as student safety or handicapping conditions. Safety reminder for Hwy 101 West & East students: All students living on Hwy 101 West or East must catch the bus at their designated stop. Do not cross the highway to catch the bus at a later time. Reminder for A.M. Greywolf Elementary students: Greywolf Elementary students are transferred to a shuttle bus in the Fir Street stadium parking lot. Kindergarten bus runs: Kindergarten bus routes will be available at elementary schools on/after Sept. 25th or parents may call Transportation Office. Morning Kindergarten students will ride their regular route bus to school, and the mid-day Kindergarten bus home. Afternoon Kindergarten students will ride the mid-day Kindergarten bus to school and their regular route bus home. There will be mid-day Kindergarten bus runs. Bus drivers will not drop Kindergarten students at stops unless a parent or other designated adult is there to meet the child. If there is no adult at the stop, the child will be brought back to the school. Parents, for younger elementary students on regular bus runs, please have someone at the stop to meet the students, particularly on Hwy 101 East and West. All other students will ride the same route bus in the A.M. and the P.M. unless otherwise noted. Students who wish to get off at a stop other than their own, or who wish to ride a bus other than their own must have an official bus pass issued by the school office. Hand-written notes from parents will not be accepted. If you have questions, please contact Jeff Gossage, Director of Transportation, at (360)582-3274 or (360)582-3273.

KIDS TODAY FALL 2015

All Day Kindergarten is the First Step in College and Career Readiness Ann M. Renker, Ph.D., Assistant Superintendent for the Sequim School District What an exciting time for the students and families served by the Sequim School District! As September and the beginning of another school year draws near, we can anticipate an increased investment in student learning thanks to the fact that we now have All Day Kindergarten programs in both our elementary schools. Research clearly demonstrates that children in All Day Kindergarten programs experience numerous intellectual and socialemotional benefits, including greater gains in math and reading skills. More information about the strong impact of an increased Kindergarten day is available at the National Education Association site http://www. nea.org/home/11541.htm . Another benefit found in a longer day at the beginning of the K-12 journey is the time to connect students with activities and ideas to stimulate the formation of plans for “what they want to be when they grow up”. In modern school parlance, this translates to building bridges to the five options that students can access after high school: entering the work force, joining a military unit, seeking out technical training, attending a two year college, or entering a four year college/university. Our staff at the other end of the educational provision sequence is also working to build partnerships that help increase college and career readiness for our high schoolers. Sequim High School English Department Chair Jon Eekhoff sent me some exciting information which elevates the relationship between good grades in high school English classes and college opportunities. He writes, “Representatives from Sequim High School (SHS) and Peninsula College (PC) spent several days this summer working

together to create a new path for students to qualify for placement in English courses at PC. In the past, students were placed by the Compass test. While the test provided a quick snapshot of a student’s abilities in a limited area, both SHS and PC felt these results were not always a reliable source for placement. Starting this year, students attending SHS and transitioning to PC will be able to use their grades from English classes to qualify for placement in English 101 at the college. These agreements apply to both SHS graduates and to students wanting to move to PC for Running Start. In order to qualify a student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 at SHS. Students taking AP Literature or AP Language/Composition can qualify for placement in English 101 by scoring a C+ or better in both semesters. Students in Honors 10th Grade English must score a B or better in both semesters to qualify. Juniors in English 11 can qualify by scoring an A- or better in both semesters.” Another wonderful feature of this district is the expansive view of community members and organizations when it comes to College and Career Readiness. At a recent meeting with members of the Sequim Education Foundation, I was pleased to discover the group’s commitment to providing resources for teachers to “think and act globally”. These resources can expand K-12 classroom opportunities to include practices and skills now highly valued in the work world and on college campuses, such as increased use of technology and an emphasis on teaching world languages when children’s brains are most receptive. But lest we forget a foundational obligation of public education, we need to close gaps in achievement and access to opportunity, including entry points to both the workforce and higher education. I am grateful to the community partners who expand the learning day for students, and help us close the mesh on our safety net for students and families needing wraparound support. Notable in this regard is our campus neighbor, the Boys and Girls Club, which assists us in preparing students to overcome obstacles and create a plan for success on whatever

path they choose. We have recently submitted a proposal to the county to ensure that we can provide substance abuse and mental health services for students, including proactive education that will minimize reliance on alcohol or drugs to relieve stress or cope with problems. Keeping our eyes on the prize, College and Career Readiness, means we need to collaborate to discover and develop K-12 strategies to make education meaningful in this increasingly complex world.

KIDS TODAY FALL 2015

This safety information is brought to you by the following community-minded businesses.

Help kids get to school and home safely

An adult’s flash of impatience behind the wheel or a child’s panicked sprint to catch up with a departing school bus can turn a single moment into a terrible nightmare. This fall, as the children get back to school it’s important that drivers and children remember that getting to school and home safely is everybody’s business.

If your children take the bus, make sure they know these five simple rules: arrive at your school bus stop five minutes before its scheduled stop; wait for the bus a safe distance away from the side of the street; stay back from the bus until it comes to a complete stop; if it’s dark, wear retro-reflective material and stay visible to drivers; and if you miss your bus or if it never arrives, go straight back home.

make sure they know to walk facing traffic or ride their bicycle with the traffic. Teach them to cross streets only at crosswalks and to always check for cars to the left first, then right, then left again. In the car, respect school bus traffic laws, which means coming to a full stop, from both directions, until the bus’s red lights stop flashing. If you’re preparing to make a right turn, be aware of bicyclists approaching from behind you on that side. Keep an eye out for children crossing the street, especially during hours when the school day starts and ends. Slow down in school zones, and be watchful for children running to catch the school bus.

For those who walk or ride a bicycle to school, help them choose the safest and most direct route. If there are no sidewalks, Drive slowly in school zones; kids can dart out into the street faster than you can blink an eye. 1371402
