Placer Academy WEEKLY UPDATES
We can't wait to see everyone at our 2021-2022 orientation! Students will get their school pictures taken, meet their teacher(s), drop off school supplies, and visit with friends. Parents will have an opportunity to get fingerprinted for volunteering, enroll students in childcare, and collect important information and documents for the upcoming school year.
2021-2022 SUPPLY LISTS:
THE LION'S DEN:
We are excited to be able to offer our families an after-school program beginning in the fall and we are still accepting applications. The Lion's Den supplement to our parent/student handbook can be found HERE. Included in this supplement are the registration form and directions to enroll your child in our after-school program.
For more information, visit our Lion's Den Page.
IMMUNIZATION REMINDER FOR INCOMING 7TH GRADERS:
Students advancing into 7th-grade must meet current immunization requirements. The majority of students will only need a Tdap booster (unless one was already given after their 7th birthday), although some 7th-grade students may need their second varicella (chickenpox) vaccine if they have not already received two. If you have questions about immunization requirements, please see LINK HERE for more information. Students who currently have a personal belief exemption for immunizations will need to meet ALL immunization requirements or ensure that their physician has issued a medical exemption in the CAIR-ME system PRIOR TO the first day of 7th-grade. Medical exemptions issued prior to 2021 are not valid for 7th-grade entry.
If your child is receiving their immunizations over the summer, please bring in an updated immunization record when the office reopens in August (beginning the week of August 2). Students will need to meet all immunization requirements for 7th grade prior to the first day of school (August 24) or students will not be allowed to attend class. Please contact the front office or email me with any additional questions.
KINDERGARTEN ROUND UP:
All of our kindergarten students will be scheduled for our annual kindergarten round up. During this 30 minute assessment, we will meet with students to help us determine some baseline skills for planning purposes. Click HERE to schedule your child's appointment.
