It is time to begin thinking about next school year. We are asking for your help in finding the children who will be in Kindergarten as well as those who would qualify for the Pre-K program for the 2017 – 2018 school year in the Remington USD 206 school district.
If you have a child or know of a child who will be 4 years old on or before August 31, 2017 and would be interested in attending Pre-K or a child who will be 5 years old on or before August 31, 2017 and is planning to attend Kindergarten at Remington Elementary next school year please fill out the attached form and return it to the school office. You can also phone the RES office with the information by calling 620-752-3239.
If a child is already attending Pre-K at Remington Elementary this school year they will NOT need to go through the Kindergarten screening.
Both Pre-K and Kindergarten Roundup Screenings are scheduled for April 18th & 19th, 2017. Once the screening registration has been completed the school office will schedule a screening appointment for the child. A letter will be mailed to the parents with a scheduled time for their child’s screening.
Is everyone ready for some road construction? If you are like us, we are dreading the closing of 196. As of now, here is the district’s plan. The roads will be shut down Tuesday, February 28th. On that day, buses will begin running approximately 15 minutes earlier. If you ride a route bus, please contact your driver if they haven’t given you a new time when they will be stopping at your house in the morning. If you ride a shuttle bus, you MUST arrive at your school where you get picked up by 7:40. Buses will begin loading then so they can leave at 7:45. The detour we are planning on using for the shuttle between schools is shown in the picture. We will go south on Meadowlark Road to 50th Street, then east to Diamond Rd and north to Potwin. We plan on this adding approximately 15 minutes to the shuttle. In the afternoon, the shuttle will also be approximately 15 minutes longer as well. This means the buses will be dropping off students about 15 minutes later than they are right now. On the 23rd and 24th, Thursday and Friday this week, we will be running the afternoon shuttle on the detour to make sure our times will be correct for the 28th when 196 is closed. So on the 23rd and 24th, students will be dropped off later than normal. We apologize that we have to make the day longer for some students.
So, wintertime illnesses are really going around. We can likely expect a surge now that we're all back together at school again! Please make sure students get enough sleep, eat well and stay home if they are contagious!!!!!! Attached is a handout with criteria for staying home from school and tips to avoid illness. Please review it so you know when to keep sick ones home.
