I am writing you today regarding a number of important forms to be completed and returned to the School Office by June 29. This packet contains the following:
Family Emergency Information Form This form helps us to reach you and/or care for your child in case of an emergency. We need only one emergency information form per family.
Health Form This form, required by the State of Louisiana, gives us information that assists us in the care of your child. Every student attending St. Andrew’s must have a well visit in the summer before the 1st day of school. *The bottom half of the Health Form must be completed by your child’s Physician. Please note: a separate health form is required for each child.
Permission Form – Permission To Give Medicine: This authorizes the School to administer medication. Please note: a separate permission form is required for each child. Field Trip Insurance Form: This authorizes the School for field trips. Prior to serving as a driver on a field trip, all parents must verify that they hold a valid driver’s license, current vehicle registration and auto insurance. By signing this form you are agreeing to these conditions.
Office Depot 5% Back to School Program This program gives you an opportunity to help St. Andrew’s receive credits for FREE supplies when you shop at Office Depot for school supplies.
Sensory Screening Sensory screenings are offered to all of our students in September. Students in PK-3 will receive vision, hearing, speech, and language screenings. Students in Grades 4-8 will receive vision and hearing screenings. Upon recommendation from parent or teacher, the speech and language screening will be conducted as well. There is no additional charge for this service.
If you would not like to have your child participate in the sensory screenings, please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org before August 14 indicating that you do not want your child to participate in the sensory screenings.
Supply Lists for 2018-2019 Please check your email for the supply list for each grade level PK-8. St. Andrew’s faculty appreciate parent support in ensuring students have all the items on the list, some of which are not part of the 1st Day School Supplies kits. If ordering from 1st Day School Supplies, the deadline to order is June 15.
Summer Reading We encourage all students to read, read, read books during the summer from the Suggested Summer Reading list or from reading lists sponsored by local public libraries. For students moving into grades 3-8, there is a required reading assignment due on the first day of school. Please check your email for details and instructions.
Spirit Shirts Every student at St. Andrew’s is required to purchase a collared St. Andrew’s Spirit Shirt, preferably in red and in either short or long sleeves, through Land’s End. Link to order here. These shirts should be worn on designated Spirit Days throughout the school year as well as on any official School field trip.
****Please complete all required forms and return them to the School Office by June 29. Students may not start School in August if these forms are not current and on file in the School Office: a current Immunization Record (for PK, K, Grade 1, and all NEW students and students 11-12 years of age, entering Grade 6 or any other grade) and a PHYSICIAN-SIGNED HEALTH FORM (FOR ALL GRADES). ****
