Dear CCS Families,
∑†††††††† As we head into the cool mornings and warm days of the fall season, jackets seem to get forgotten on the playground. Please check the lost & found bin which is located on the corner of the school building by the front entrance.
∑†††††††† On Saturday, September 13, from 2:30-6 pm at the new Carbondale North Face Bike Park (by the skate park on Meadowood Drive), there will be an opening celebration with food and raffle prizes. It is an amazing new facility.
∑†††††††† If you volunteer more than 4 times a year at CCS, or plan on going on a school outdoor education trip, you are required by law to be fingerprinted. The school pays for this requirement and the forms are available from Sandra at the front desk.
∑†††††††† We need parent volunteers to assist with our Vision & Hearing screenings Friday morning, September 19. If you can help, please contact Sandra.
∑†††††††† This year, we have contracted with Nurses on the Move.†They†are two registered nurses from the front range who work primarily with rural schools to provide the health resources they need. As a small public charter school, we are unable to use the nurses that the school district provides to its schools. Please contact me if you have any questions about this service. If you would like to meet Ann Burkett and Susan McColl, they will be here on Friday, September 19 for the vision & hearing screenings. Nurses on the Move offers our school the following:
Review safety and health practices of the school.
Provide training to staff, and delegate and supervise the administration of medication and special health procedures to trained staff on an as needed basis.
Provide on-site consultation in five day long visits scheduled throughout the school year.
Provide information on communicable disease, infection control, immunizations, and other health and safety topics as needed.
Provide health and safety training when needed.
Provide vision and hearing screening annually according to state guidelines.
Help to link school staff, children and families with community health resources when needed.
Be available to staff and families to discuss health concerns, by email, telephone during the school year, or by an appointment on the days they are present in the school.
∑†††††††† Outdoor Education Schedule: 8th grade September 8-12 (Navajo Lake, NM/CO canoeing); 7th grade September 10-12 (Mt Sopris backpack); 5th & 6th grade October 1-3 (Sand Flats, UT); 3rd & 4th grade September 16-18 (Difficult campground, Aspen); 1st & 2nd grade September 23-24 (Bogan Flats campground, Marble); & Kindergarten September 30 (ACES & Maroon Bells).
