Scholastic Book Fair

The fall Book Fair is fast approaching, and we are so excited! The fair will run Monday, Nov. 18 through Thursday, Nov. 21 both before and after school until 7:30 p.m. each evening. There will be events, raffles and a prize wheel during the fair, more information to come home with your student. In order to make this fair a success for all we are in need of volunteers to help with cashier and helper shifts. Please utilize this link to pick a volunteer slot that works for you. Remember, for each shift you select you receive a $5 gift certificate to be used at the fair. We hope to see you all there!


Medication

If your child requires any medications during the day, prescription or over the counter medication (including cough drops, pain relievers, allergy medication or vitamins), they must be stored and administered in the school office. A Medication Permission Form must be completed and returned to school for each medication. All medications must be brought in by an adult and be in their original packaging. In addition, prescription medications require a doctor’s signature. This guideline is in place for the safety of our students.

Reporting student absences from school

New this year, a written note is no longer required for normal daily absences when parents call or send emails notifying the school office. Schools prefer that parents report absences by calling the school attendance line at (262) 820-1530 or emailing a message to woodsideattendance@hamilton.k12.wi.us.
