Is your child ready for school?

Parents, during this busy time of year these are a few things you can do to help your child be healthy, in school and ready to learn.

1. Have your child’s immunizations up to date. Contact your physician or school nurse to be sure.

2. Now that you have the school calendar, schedule routine dental, orthodontia, and medical appointments when school is not in session.

3. If you need help accessing free or reduced cost medical, dental or vision care, contact your school nurse. Many resources are listed in our Health Services brochure.

4. Alert your school nurse of any chronic medical conditions that your child might have. Health plans can be developed to provide proper treatment while at school.

5. Medications can be administered at school. Parent or a responsible adult must transport all medications to school and fill out a medication authorization form. It is not OK to send medication to school with the student.

6. Eating a balanced breakfast at home or at school is very important. It gets your child off to a good start and helps make them ready to learn.

7. Encourage healthful eating at home and at school. Eat three balanced meals a day with healthy snacks in between. Avoid excessive sugars and saturated fats. Eat meals slowly and as a family whenever possible.

8. Encourage play and exercise, outside and with friends and neighbors when possible.

9. Help your child balance a busy activity schedule with enough rest and sleep.

10. If your child is sick, keep him/her home from school. Contact your physician or school nurse if needed.

11. Teach and encourage your child to practice good hand washing. This will help to keep all of the students health and in school.

Head Lice Information

Steps for Safe Use of treatment – Follow these steps to use any head lice treatment safely and appropriately.

  • After rinsing the product from the hair and scalp, use a fine-toothed comb or special “nit comb” to remove dead lice and nits.
  • Apply the product only to the scalp and the hair attached to the scalp-not to other body hair.
  • Before treating young children, talk with the child’s doctor or your pharmacist for recommended treatments based on a child’s age and weight.
  • Use medication exactly as directed on the label and never more often than directed unless advised by your health care professional.
  • Use treatments on children only under the direct supervision of an adult.Heading Off Head Lice
  • Teach your children to avoid head-to-head contact during play and other activities at home, school, and elsewhere (sports activities, playgrounds, slumber parties, and camps).
  • Teach your child to not share clothing and supplies, such as hats, carves, helmets, sports uniforms, towels, combs, brushes, bandanas, hair ties and headphones.
  • Disinfest combs and brushes used by a person with head lice by soaking them in hot water (at least 130°F) for 5-10 minutes.
  • Do not lie on beds, couches, pillows, carpets, or stuffed animals that have recently been in contact with a person with head lice.
  • Clean items that have been in contact with the head of a person with lice in the 48 hours before treatment. Machine wash and dry clothing, bed linens, and other items using hot water (130°F) and a high heat drying cycle. Clothing and items that are not washable can be dry-cleaned or sealed in a plastic bag and stored for two weeks.
  • Vacuum the floor and furniture, particularly where the person with lice sat or lay. Head lice survive less than one or two days if they fall off the scalp and cannot feed.
  • Do not use insecticide sprays or fogs; they are not necessary to control head lice and can be toxic if inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
  • After finishing treatment with lice medication, check everyone in your family for lice after one week. If live lice are found, contact your health care professional.

Check list for cleaning:

Wash bath towels, coats, washable rugs, hats, scarves, sheets, blankets and pillow cases

Sanitize brushes, combs, nit combs, barrettes and other hair holders

Vacuum car seats, chairs, couches, pillows from couch or bed, bed mattresses

Remember to comb and pick nits twice a day for two weeks, even if you don’t see nits!!

Dress for Success- Shasta Middle School Dress Code

Students and parents share the responsibility for proper dress and grooming. Students’ dress should be clean, neat, and appropriate for school, emphasizing an environment of respect. We ask that students wear appropriate clothing to school at all times. If the dress or grooming of a student disrupts the educational process or in unclean or a threat to the health and safety of the individual or any other person, the school has a legitimate concern and will take appropriate action.

  1. Pants and shorts must be worn at or above the highest point of the hips. Sagging pants and shorts are not permitted. Shorts must have an inseam of MORE THAN 3 INCHES.
  2. Clothing must cover bare midriffs, cleavage, and all under garments completely. Spaghetti straps are not allowed unless completely covered by additional clothing.
  3. Skirts must measure and be worn 16 inches from top to bottom. The hem of all dresses must measure at least 16 inches below the student’s belly button.
  4. Clothing which advertises or displays alcohol, drugs, sex, nudity, foul or obscene language, weapons, or which is otherwise disrespectful to people may not be worn.
  5. Swimwear, pajamas, sleepwear, blankets, and soft-soled slippers are not appropriate attire for school.
  6. Sunglasses may not be worn on campus during school hours.
  7. Safety pins, pocket or wallet chains, or jewelry with spikes are not allowed.
  8. The wearing or displaying of clothing or other objects that are commonly considered evidence or membership in or affiliation with any gang is prohibited.
  9. Hats, bandanas, knit hats, and head coverings (such as sweatshirt hoods) may not be worn at Shasta during class time.

The following consequences will be the result of non-compliance with dress code:

  • Students who violate dress code will be sent to the office.
  • Parents will be notified to bring appropriated clothing, pick up student, or release their student to leave campus to go home to obtain proper attire.
  • If the parents are not available, then the student will be given loner clothing to wear in place of the inappropriate clothing. Refusal to wear this will be considered defiance of school authority. The goal is to change the inappropriate clothing and return to class.
  • Students will not be able to return to class until they are properly dressed.
  • Repeated dress code violations may result in a referral and other disciplinary consequences.
