If you know children who have not enrolled yet, please send them to our office. If your child was here last year, he/she is most likely on a class list and you do not have to come in to sign up. We will send new enrollment forms home the first day of school.

Summer Camp:

Be sure to sign up for our Summer Camps! This is for kindergarten through age 13 students! Breakfast, lunch and snacks are free, and our children visit the pool each and every day (weather permitting)! We will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. for all your summer needs! Our “littles” (ages 16 months to age 4) will be able to stay all of June and July as well! Call us for more information! (765-552-7381)

Attention Parents of Next Year’s 4-Year-Old Preschool Children:
Please go to www.onmywayprek.org and sign up! It will only take 2-3 minutes and you will know if you qualify! It doesn’t hurt to try! We are going to have full day four-year-old classrooms and half day morning classrooms next year! The afternoons for full day classrooms will include free lunch, rest time, more learning activities, free snacks and lots of fun. Our children may attend before and after school as well as we are open 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Please call if you have questions about the preschool program for next year!

Online Lunch Accounts:
ALL lunch accounts must be paid in full before the end of the school year. You may view your lunch accounts and pay online at https://family.titank12.com.

Online Daycare/Preschool Accounts:
Please make payment plans for any outstanding balances for daycare and preschool. Payments may be paid online at https://parentportal.runsandbox.com/.

Background Checks:

We are changing our system to have more safety for our children. The program is called Safe Visitors Solutions. We will require parents who plan to visit for 8 hours or less to scan your driver’s license for a security check. We are encouraging parents to obtain the “expanded background check” for $16.95 which will last for five years and you may volunteer and visit more than 8 hours! Go here to sign up: https://secure.safevisitorsolutions.com/Safe/Volunteer/000988/VOLUNTEER

Do You Need Additional Assistance?
Please call 765-552-4562 to speak with Trisha Sullivan, Health Access Worker at St.Vincent Mercy Hospital if you need assistance with:
· Finding a doctor
· Applying for health coverage (Medicaid, HIP, Medicare, HHW)
· Applying for public programs (Food Stamps, TANF, Social Security, WIC, Breast and Cervical Cancer Program) or Connections to other community resources and agencies for assistance.  Health Access Workers are here to help you with all your needs. When you come into the hospital or doctor's office for services, be sure to let the staff know you are  working with Trisha Sullivan. That way, we can better serve you by working together as a team to help you remove any barriers to you and your family’s health.

Update on Immunizations:
Every child (K-12) must have 2 Varicella (chickenpox vaccines) by the beginning of next school year. Please check with your family doctors or Mrs. Bock if you are not sure about your child’s immunizations. You may also want to check on Hepatitis A for your little ones at home.

Internet Essentials:
Internet - Some of you were asking about the Internet Essentials program that allows parents of children on the free or reduced lunch plan to qualify for this internet program for $9.95 a month. You may also take advantage of buying a low-cost computer and receive Internet training at no additional charge. The number to call is 1-855-846-8376.  Hope that helps!
