Health Screening for 7th and 8th Graders

September 20, 2017
2017-2018 Chadron Public Schools
Health Screenings
Dear Parents/Guardians:
Hope this letter finds each of you and your families enjoying the beautiful fall season!
We are writing to let you know the 2017-2018 Chadron Public Schools Health Screenings will be held on September 25 and 26, 2017.  The state of Nebraska requires students in 1st - 4th, 7th and 10th grades to complete a hearing, vision, dental and height, weight and blood pressure screenings.  Students in 8th and 11th grades will complete a hearing and vision screening.   These screenings are not only a requirement by the State of Nebraska but also very important in early diagnosis of potential barriers in a student’s ability to learn and grow!
If you do not want your child/ren to participate in the free screenings, you will need to come to the school and sign a waiver.  Due to the screenings being a state requirement, you will need to provide the school with screening results from your private provider (hgt, wgt, BMI and BP), eye doctor, dentist and hearing specialist by December 1, 2017.  
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurses

CMS Parent-Teacher Conferences

It's hard to believe, but we are already at the mid-quarter and that means Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTC)! CMS will host PTC on Thursday, September 14th from 2-8 PM in the CMS Gym. CMS will have a 1:30 dismissal on that day. The rest of the district will have a regular schedule. 

You may know that Mr. Kaus, Mrs. Skavdal and Mrs. Traphagan teach both 7th and 8th grade classes. Mrs. Hinman teaches 5th and 6th grade. In an effort to minimize wait times for these teachers we are asking that parents try to attend at the following times:

2:00-4:30 - 5th and 7th grade parents

4:30-5:00 - Teacher Dinner Break

5:00-8:00 - 6th and 8th grade parents

That said, we welcome and appreciate parent attendance at any time and teaches will be available from 2 PM - 8 PM. Please note that shared staff (Art and Music) will be available at CMS from 3:20-5:30 before they have to leave for CHS Parent-Teacher Conferences.

The school year is off to a great start and we hope to see all of our parents and students on Thursday.


*Friday, September 15th is a 1:30 dismissal district-wide.
