PARENTS OF ESC MUSIC STUDENTS -

If you have a child in the band or choir at ESC, you are a music booster!

The ESC Music Booster organization meets a few times each year to help guide the music department, help with needs the department may not get from the school, and provide logistical help to the music staff when needed.

The group is financially sound, and the students do all the fundraising.  We are simply looking for a few new parents to come give their input at the meetings, as many of our ‘regulars’ have had their students graduate over the last couple of years. The time investment involved in serving as a music booster is small, but the impact is huge.

Please consider attending our final meeting of the year, Wednesday, April 25, at 7pm in the Middle School Choir room. If you have any questions, feel free to ask any member of the music staff.

SPEECH

This year’s speech season has had a few moments of adversity, but overcoming the obstacles ended up being a good learning moment for us all. We went to state in both Large Group and Individual Events this year. Large Group Speech had lofty ambitions of a one-act play that never came to completion; hopefully we can revisit this plan next year and see it accomplished. One short film made it on to State and received a II rating.

District Individual Contest was a bit hindered by weather. District Individual Contest was scheduled to be in Fort Dodge, the same weekend as some nasty winter weather—how untimely! We, the speech coaches and Mr. Litterer, ultimately decided, late in the evening the night before contest, that we would not travel to Districts and risk the safety of our students. We were unbelievably heart broken because we initially thought that our chances at State had dissipated (just like the apocalyptic winter weather we were promised). But, we were still permitted to compete by having a judge come to our school and give us ratings that allowed us to continue our season. State Individual Contest came with moments of adversity for some of our individual performers, but all students overcame with dignity and grace, impressing their coaches and the contest judges.

I’m very much looking forward to next season to see what some of our younger participants come up with next.

NURSE NOTES:
Dear Parents or Guardians,

I am writing to inform you of some health concerns and as a general reminder of our school health policies regarding school children and health issues.  “Tis the Season of Influenza A, Diarrhea, coughing, head lice, Strep throat and many others”

Students, who have vomited, must remain home for 24 hours since last vomiting.
Students who have symptoms of influenza (upper respiratory) must remain home for 24 hours until the coughing and fever have subsided.  If a student has a fever of 100.6* or above, they MUST remain home until they have no fever and have not taken any fever reducing medicine for 24 hours.  As influenza is airborne, this policy will be enforced to ensure a healthy environment for all at school.  I understand that it is difficult when you have to arrange for different childcare, or take off work yourself to be home with a sick child.  Many times they can still have symptoms, even mild, and are acting just fine and wanting to come back to school, and you are ready for them to also!  However, if a child returns to school, still exhibiting these symptoms, they will be putting other students and staff at risk of getting sick also.  If your child does come back to school sick, we will call you to come and pick them up.  We will do all we can to try to stop the spread of illnesses, this does include diarrhea.

If you have any questions, please email me at kwilliams@eastsac.k12.ia.us.  You can also call either elementary buildings in Sac City 712-662-7200 (Monday, Wednesday and Friday), Wall Lake 712-664-2627 (Tuesday or Thursday)

Happy Holidays

NURSE NOTES: 

With the many different germs and viruses going around, I would like to remind everyone of a few very important things to be aware of and practice.

1.    HANDWASHING IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO TO PREVENT THE SPREAD OF GERMS!!!  Everyone needs to wash his or her hands often and use hand sanitizer also.  The best defense is good soap and warm water.  You have all heard about MRSA in the news.  If we practice good hygiene and ESPECIALLY good hand washing, we have used our first and best defense!   If anyone has cuts or wounds, they must be covered to be in school and to help prevent spread of germs and infections. 

2.    Don't share towels and water bottles.  Germs like flu, MRSA, staph, etc. are spread by   droplet or contact.  Protect yourself with good hygiene and cleanliness and not sharing items.  Remember, head lice season is upon us also, it seems that when the weather turns cold and families are together at holidays, that this is the prime time to spread all sorts of germs, etc. 

3.    If you don't feel good, have a fever or diarrhea...stay home.  Students with a fever must be fever free (without taking Tylenol, etc) for 24 hours before they are allowed to return to school.  Students must also remain home for 24 hours after vomiting.  Please enforce this with your children.  When a student comes back to class too early after being ill, they spread the germs to the others in their class.

4.    Please dress your children in layers for the colder weather.  Make sure they come to school with coats, gloves, hats, boots and snow pants when needed. 

5.    When going through your children’s clothes, if you find good sweatpants or elastic waist pants that you will be getting rid of, keep the school clothes closet in mind please.  We can always use good sweats or athletic pants due to the various sizes of children, the elastic waist works best.  Many times children may spill, have an accident, or get pants wet outside and need a change. 

Thanks everyone for taking the time to care and help keep our kids (and ourselves) healthy.  Families will be together for the holidays, so do all you can to protect your family from the spread of germs.

Congratulations to HS Business Teacher Lanice Kock for receiving one of three Workforce Warrior Awards in Denison on October 4th at the Annual Employer Educator Summit for Western Iowa.

Mrs. Kock works to place many high school students in businesses, hospitals, farms and schools each semester through her School-to-Careers class. Students get real-world experiences  through semester-long internships, as well as getting to listen first hand to many employers in the Sac County area through a monthly seminar held in the high school library.

"Western Iowa needs workers, and part of this solution is our incumbent population. We strive to retain and attract persons who are native to the area or who have other ties (e.g. family or business). Students attending our schools are a natural way for us to achieve this goal, and is the primary driver behind the Western Iowa Advantage Employer-Educator Summit. The Workforce Warrior Award aims to provide recognition to a business that has implemented a program or project within the WIAD region that enhances a collaborative relationship between school(s) and business(es) by providing opportunities to students that will grow their knowledge of and/or experience in careers found. As part of the award, a small financial stipend is provided to help further the work being recognized."

Reading Goals

2016-17 Reading Goal: 100% of the students in grades 3-11 will be proficient or advanced on the Iowa Assessment-Reading.
East Sac County Schools did not meet their reading goal for 2016-17 in any grade 3 through 11.

 Long-Range Goal for East Sac County Schools:
(Pending School Board approval and as reported in the Iowa Department of Education state CASA report):
By the year 2020 95% of students in grades 2 through 6 will be at or above benchmark on the FAST Adaptive Reading (aReading) assessment.

 The annual goal for the 2016-2017 school year:
(Pending School Board approval and as reported in the Iowa Department of Education state CASA report):
In the spring of 2016, 63% of students in grades 2 through 4 were at or above benchmark on the FAST Adaptive Reading (aReading) assessment. By the spring of 2018, we will increase that percentage to 75%. 


EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS FOR STUDENTS
Denny Olhausen, East Sac Middle School Principal

 Middle school parents will notice something different this year while viewing their child’s grades in teachers’ gradebooks on JMC. Middle school teachers are dedicating a section in their gradebook to “Employability Skills”. Within this section there will be categories classified as WWA (Working With Adults), WWS (Working With Students), AC (Academic Conduct), and WC (Work Completion). These categories will be marked for each student in each class on a 4, 3, 2, 1 rating. Mastery of the individual skill is identified by a “4”, Proficiency is identified as a “3”, Approaching Proficiency is identified as a “2”, and Needs Work is identified as a “1”. These markings suit the purpose of simply trying to improve communication to the student and parent on the student’s habits in skills needed for life and employment. These skills are not easily identifiable through a grade, but are just as imperative in being successful in life. 

A couple of things are important to note about this process. First, this change will appear only in teacher gradebooks and not on the report card. Likewise, the markings in the “Employability Skills” section of the gradebook have no impact on the student’s grade. The student grade is isolated to the student’s knowledge, understanding, and ability toward the content learnings. For further information in relation to Employability Skills please contact me at the middle school office at 712 662-3259. 

OCCUPATIONAL CHILD CARE II CLASS

(OCC II)

 The East Sac County Occupational Child Care II Class (OCC II) will be conducting their “preschool” as a portion of their curriculum in the Family and Consumer Science Department. 

 The OCC students are looking for children as participants in their class.  The class will be held at the high school in Lake View in the Family and Consumer Science classroom. Classes will begin the week of January 22nd, 2018 and will continue through the week of May 7th, 2018, observing the East Sac County school calendar.  Any parent of a three, four, or five-year old child, who may be interested in enrolling their child in the class, may call the high school (712-665-5001) no later than January 17th, 2018.  Enrollment is limited so sign up soon!  One group of students will attend school on Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00 to 11:25 a.m., while another group will attend school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:45 to 11:15 a.m. (due to the schedule at the high school). There is a minimal cost of $1.00 ($16.00 total) per week per child to help cover supplies. 

 The Occupational Child Care II Class is under the direction of Kristina Krukow, Family and Consumer Science Instructor.    

FCCLA (Family, Career, and Community Leaders of America) will be hosting a food drive during the volleyball game against SCC on October 5th. Bragging rights are at stake! Please bring in non-perishable food, paper products (napkins, cups, plates, etc.), & personal hygiene products to the game. You can also drop them off with Mrs. Krukow before October 5th. Items will be donated to people affected by hurricane Irma.

Annual Notice of Policy No. 506.1E9 – Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
The Family Education 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 district received a request for access.

Parents or 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 principal 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 or in violation of the student’s privacy rights.

Parents or eligible students may ask the school district to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading.  They should write the school principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading.

If the district decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the district 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 the FERPA authorized disclosure without consent.

One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with legitimate education interests.  A school official is a person employed by the district as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel); a person serving on the School Board; a person or company with whom the district has contracted to perform a special task (such as an attorney, auditor, AEA employees, medical consultant, or therapist); or a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee or student assistance team, or assisting another school official in performing his or her task. 

A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility.


Military Recruitment
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (section 9528) requires that the high school must provide military recruiters access to student names, address, and telephone listings.  Parents or students may request this information not be provided without written parental/guardian consent and districts must comply with all such requests.
 

Open Enrollment
Parents and guardians considering the use of the open enrollment option to enroll their child or children in another public school district in the state of Iowa should be aware of the following dates:

  • March 1, 2018 - Last date for regular open enrollment requests for the 2018-19 school year.
  • September 1, 2017 - Last date for open enrollment requests for entering kindergarten students for the 2017-18 school year.
  • September 1 - Parents who have good cause as defined by law for failing to meet the March 1st deadline may make an open enrollment request by September 1.

The parent/guardian is required to indicate on the form if the request is for a pupil requiring special education, as provided by Iowa Code chapter 256B.

Parents/guardians of open enrolled students whose income falls below 60% of the federal poverty guidelines are eligible for transportation assistance.  This may be in the form of actual transportation or in the form of a cash stipend.

Parents should be aware that open enrollment may result in the loss of athletic eligibility.

For further details, contact the Superintendent’s office.


Asbestos
To:            Parents and Employees
Re:            The Presence of Asbestos Within District Buildings
Date:              7/2008

The Institute for Environmental Assessment was requested by the East Sac County Schools to review and prepare an asbestos management plan identifying the presence of asbestos within the district's school buildings.  The Institute's federally certified inspectors, planners, public health and engineering consultants worked in conjunction with school administrative personnel to identify asbestos-containing building products.  In addition, the Institute for Environmental Assessment has performed a re-inspection as required by the AHERA regulations.  Asbestos is a mineral fiber associated with increased levels of disease when inhaled.  The risk rating procedures which the Institute used in commenting on the asbestos were developed in conjunction with national experts in the area of industrial medicine, toxicology, industrial hygiene and engineering.  After reviewing the characteristics of the districts' buildings during the

Re-inspection, we prepared an updated management plan for each building, a copy of which is maintained along with the initial plan at the district’s central office and also in the office for each major building describing the asbestos plan and the intended response.

Asbestos is dangerous only when it is broken loose from building material into fine, dust-like fibers and inhaled.  The district is free of dangerous asbestos at this time.

The district implemented its management plan and has been conducting a six-month periodic surveillance of all asbestos-containing building materials.  This periodic surveillance and the re-inspection are conducted to provide a continuous assessment to assure safety conscious management of asbestos-containing materials.

The detailed plan and updated information for each building is open to public review.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact Steve Nuetzman, Director of Building/Grounds, at 665-5000; he also serves as East Sac County CSD Asbestos Program Manager.

Homeless Children:
“Homeless child or youth” is defined as a child or youth from the age of 3 years through 21 years who lacks a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence and includes the following:

The education subtitle of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act states the following [42 U.S.C. § 11434a(2)]:

      The term “homeless children and youths”—

(A)  means individuals who lack a fixed, regular, and adequate nighttime residence (within the meaning of section 11302 (a)(1) of this title); and

(B)  includes—

(i)  children and youths who are sharing the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or a similar reason; are living in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of alternative adequate accommodations; are living in emergency or transitional shelters; are abandoned in hospitals; or are awaiting foster care placement;

(ii)   children and youths who have a primary nighttime residence that is a public or private place not designed for or ordinarily used as a regular sleeping accommodation for human beings (within the meaning of section 11302 (a)(2)(C) [1] of this title); 

(iii)   children and youths who are living in cars, parks, public spaces, abandoned buildings, substandard housing, bus or train stations, or similar settings; and

              (iv) 
migratory children (as such term is defined in section 6399 of title 20) who qualify as homeless for the purposes of this part because the children are living in circumstances described in clauses (i) through (iii) 

 East Sac County Schools Problem-Solving Process:
Prairie Lakes AEA and the East Sac County Schools utilize a collaborative problem-solving process to       address academic behavior concerns of students.  The problem-solving team includes teachers,             parents, students, administrators, and support service providers.  This team describes a problem   situation, identifies needs, designs strategies to meet those needs, then implements and evaluates those strategies.

If at some point, it is determined that the strategy a student needs is of such a nature that special
education services are needed, AEA and district staff provide specially designed instruction and/or   support services.  Each student identified in need of special education service has a problem-solving team designed to identify modifications and interventions that will best meet his/her needs.       The scopes of services are reflected in the expertise of the staff assigned to your school district.

 
Annual Notice of Policy No. 505.1 - STUDENT PROGRESS REPORTS AND CONFERENCES
Students will receive a progress report at the end of each nine-week grading period.  Students, who are doing poorly, and their parents, are notified prior to the end of the semester in order to have an opportunity to improve their grade.  The board encourages the notification of students who have made marked improvement prior to the end of the semester.

Parent-teacher conferences will be held twice each year at the elementary, middle school, and high school.

Parents, teachers, or principals may request a conference for students in grades kindergarten through twelve in addition to the scheduled conference time.  Parents and students are encouraged to discuss the student's progress or other matters with the student's teacher.

NEW IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENTS ENTERING BOTH 7TH AND 12TH GRADES FOR THE 2017/2018 SCHOOL YEAR

The Iowa Department of Public Health has made changes to the Iowa Immunization law for the start of the 2017/18 school year.  This change requires that all students entering 7th grade have both a Meningococcal vaccine and a Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis/whopping cough) booster before school starts this fall. 

The Tdap requirement has been in place since the 2013/14 school year and requires a booster dose of Tetanus, Diphtheria, and acellular Pertussis containing vaccine for students entering 7th grade, regardless of the interval since the last Tetanus/Diphtheria containing vaccine.  Pertussis (whopping cough) is a very contagious disease that causes violent coughing fits that make it hard to breathe. 

Meningococcal disease is a life threatening illness that is caused by bacteria that infects the brain, blood, and spinal cord.  It easily spreads in crowded settings.   The vaccine will be required prior to both the 7th and 12th grades.

All students entering 7th grade must have proof of having both the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines, and students entering 12th grade must have the Meningococcal vaccine, before school starts in August, unless the student has a Certificate of Immunization Exemption

There will be no grace/extension period for the implementation of this requirement.  According to state law, these vaccines, or exemption certificate must be submitted to the school BEFORE the first day of school this fall, or student will NOT be able to attend until this is completed.
