What does it feel like to have a disability? The Margaret Mead Elementary School PTSA wanted students to be able to empathize with their peers who face mobility, learning or other challenges. As part of Disability Awareness Month, they set up a Disability Awareness Fair with eight learning stations.
Immunization, Physical Examination, and Vision/Auditory Screening of Students
The district requires all students to present evidence of having been immunized in accordance with state law. The district will exclude students of immunization. Should a parent/guardian wish to exercise a medical, personal, or religious exception, appropriate documentation must be provided to the district as referenced in JHCA/JHCB-R.
The District encourages families to access medical care for the prevention and treatment of illnesses which can prevent students from fully accessing educational opportunities.
- Parents of preschool children shall be encouraged to arrange for medical and dental examinations of their child prior to kindergarten entrance.
Prior to entry in the sixth grade, ninth grade, or as a student new to the school district, it is recommended that all students arrange for a physical evaluation.
Vision and Hearing Screening
The district shall conduct vision and hearing screening for students in K-5 and 7 in accordance with state law.
