Sycamore Creek Newsletter

In an effort to better communicate with our parents and community, we are implementing a smore.com weekly newsletter.  This email will be sent out on Tuesdays each week.  If you have signed up on Infinite Campus Parent Portal to receive emails from the district, this newsletter will be sent to you using that same method.  You can always find the link here on the website as well.  We hope you enjoy the new format!

Kindergarten Registration 2018/19 School Year

Kindergarten registration for Fall 2018 begins in the district, Wednesday, March 14.

*Please note:  All families, whether new to the district or with existing students, need to complete the registration process.

Families without students currently in the district, can register by using the online registration form.

Existing families, meaning there is currently a student actively enrolled in the district, can use their infinite campus parent portal account.

Children must be at least 5 years old by August 1, 2018 to be registered for kindergarten in the fall.  The district offers half day kindergarten in both morning and afternoon sessions.

All questions need to be addressed by the Welcome Center.  They are located at 130 Hill Road South, Entrance C, which is the north end of Ridgeview Junior High.  Their phone number is 614-920-6180.  Individual buildings will not have registration forms, they are online only.

Please visit the PLSD website, look under Our District, Enroll, Kindergarten Registration, for complete details.

*Parents who wish to see if their child qualifies for Early Acceptance into the kindergarten program must get the packet from their building of enrollment.  All testing information is included in this packet.  Early Acceptance is not guaranteed.  Your child must meet certain criteria in order to be enrolled for an early start.

Open Enrollment Request Deadline for 2018-2019

The deadline for Open Enrollment Requests, school year 2018/2019, is July 31, 2018.

The form is available on the district website under District forms, Enrolling and Open Enrollment. The application is necessary for the district to consider allowing students to attend a school outside their normal attendance boundaries. Interested K-6 parents must submit an application each year they are requesting intradistrict open enrollment. Applying is not a guarantee that students will be open enrolled. Approval is based on staffing and space availability.

Visitors

We ask all visitors to sign in and obtain a visitors pass to be in the school.

Parents are asked to respect the teacher’s responsibility to provide instruction from 9:15-4:05 p.m. We try to limit the number of classroom interruptions during the school day.

A conference is an ideal way for parents and teacher to get to know one another so the best interest of your child is realized.  Visiting in the classroom is limited and must be scheduled in advance with the teacher.

School Fees Reminder

Reminder letters for school fees were sent home recently.  If you have not paid your 2017/18 school fees, please do so as soon as possible.  Fees will accumulate from year to year so it is important to keep them up to date.  You can access your Parent Portal to check for any unpaid balances or to make payments!!!

The preferred method of payment is by logging into the Parent Portal on Infinite Campus. While schools will accept fee payments, paying via the Parent Portal ensures there is a record of payment (and that students do not misplace a check or cash.)  School offices can accept exact cash amount, check or credit card.

2017/18 School Fees:

KG  $19.00,   First – $17.00,   Second – $17.50,   Third – $22.00,

Fourth – $22.00
