Pemberton Elementary School Student Handbook 2019-2020

Fire Drills/Crisis Drills Every precaution is taken to ensure the safety of each student during normal school hours. Periodic fire and crisis drills are executed to make certain students learn proper safety procedures and adhere to all safety guidelines. Educational Field Trips Properly supervised and planned educational field trips are an important part of the instructional program. A signed permission slip from a parent or guardian is required for all field trips. Medication Policy All prescription, over-the-counter, homeopathic, and herbal medications to be given at school must be accompanied by a signed doctor’s order. The original prescription container should accompany all medications. Medications MUST be brought to school by the parent or responsible adult. Children are NOT permitted to transport medications. Children are also not permitted to keep medication in their possession during the school day. This includes cough drops, medicated lotions, etc. Parent Portal Parents of 1 st , 2 nd , 3 rd , 4 th , and 5 th grade students are able to access “real time” information regarding their child’s grades and attendance. Parents will be able to access the Parent Portal through a child specific ID number. In order to receive the ID number for your child, our school must have the most up to date information for them. The best way to do this is by returning the Personal Data Form that was sent at the beginning of the year. If a form is not returned, we cannot generate your child’s ID number. Emergency Information Personal Data/Emergency Information sheets will be sent home by each child on the first day of school. It is imperative that all sheets be returned and fully completed. Emergency situations can arise rather frequently in a school. For your child’s health and safety, it is CRITICAL that we have CURRENT emergency contact information. Please remember that it is imperative that a new form be completed with each family/household change. A new proof of residency must be submitted with each and every residential move.
