5th Grade Hearing Screenings

September 18 (during school hours)

Heartland AEA Hearing Conservation/Education Services Screening Program

Heartland AEA will conduct its annual Hearing Conservation program during the upcoming school year. Students in kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades will receive a hearing screening. Students who do NOT pass this screening will receive a repeat screening and may receive individual hearing tests by a Heartland AEA audiologist and consultation with school personnel. You will be notified about the results of the hearing test if your child does NOT pass the test. This is a screening process only and does not identify all hearing or ear problems. If your child has had hearing or ear problems recently, feel free to send this information to the school nurse for the audiologist. If you do not want your child to participate in the screening program and follow-up assessments by an audiologist, please notify the school. If there are any questions about the hearing testing program in your school, please contact your school nurse or principal.

 FOOD PANTRY HOURS

PARENT PICK-UP AND DROP-OFF LOCATION AT RSMS

To improve the safety for our students, RSMS has created a new location for parent pick-up and drop-off on the NORTH side of our building.  Parents have the entire stretch of Elm Street (now a ONE WAY STREET) to drop off their child with sidewalk access into our building.  We ask that students use the sidewalks available instead of walking through the grass or mud.  Please click on the link below to see a map of the new location.  Any questions please call Mr. Town at 388-4348.

Athletic Physicals

Any student, grades 7-12, planning on participating in school sports this year is required to have a physical, insurance, risk form, and concussion form on file in the office prior to practicing.  Please come to the office for the proper forms to take to the doctor or download the form below. The doctor does not usually have all the necessary forms to fill out.

Yearly Physicals and Changes to Vaccine Requirements

A yearly physical is an important part of your child's health & well-being. Physicals are valid for 13 months and cover the sports physical requirements, as well as ensures you are informed of all vaccine requirements and recommendations. This is an excellent time to call your McFarland provider for a check up.
