Notes from the School Nurse

Let’s start off each day with a sparkle and a shine! We all know the importance of dental hygiene, but it's important to understand that there's more to it than just brushing your teeth. 

Here's what you need to know:

  • Brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily. 

  • Replace your toothbrush every 3 months.

  • Get regular cleanings with a dentist, every 6 months.

  • Skip the juice and soda, and go for water or milk instead.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me by email at

   SCHOOL CALENDAR 2022-2023



If your child is going to be absent or late for school for any reason, please contact the office at 920-424-0172.  If we are unable to speak to us directly, you may leave a message on the voice mail system to report the absence.  Please be specific when calling your child in. If it is an illness we do need to know all the symptoms the child is having as well as the best number to reach you at if we have any further questions. Absences are considered "unexcused" if we do not hear from a parent/guardian by 9 am.  Students who are absent from school more than 10 minutes of any part of the day without a proper excuse shall be recorded as unexcused.  A student who is absent less than 10 minutes of a day shall be recorded as tardy.  The time a student enters or leaves the building will be documented, and the system will calculate the absence accordingly and uniformly across the district.  Please keep this in mind as you schedule appointments for your children.  It is always best to schedule appointments during non-school hours.  Students are expected to be in class from 7:45 to 2:45 daily.

Birthday Treats

& Invitations

Treats:  Edible birthday treats are NOT allowed per district policy. Students are allowed to bring a small, tangible birthday treat such as pencils, stickers, glowsticks, etc. 

Invitations:  Classroom teachers may not distribute birthday invitations to students unless they are going to an entire class.   If you are inviting kids from another class, that whole entire class would need to be invited too.  We prefer that birthday invitations get handled outside of school.

Media Center / Section Home

At your student's first library visit, they learned about keeping books safe at home. Please help your student make a plan for keeping their Read library books safe! If you are willing to share a picture or drawing of your safe place for library books, please submit it to Mrs. Rucinsky (print or email) and your picture could be displayed on our Digital Display Board! Students brainstormed many great ideas of where they would store their books, and we can't wait to see what you come up with as a family! Please return the books back to school each week.

We are still missing many power supplies (aka chargers) from last year. If you still have a charger at home from when your student was bringing home their device, please label it clearly with their name and return it to the media center. Once received, any fines associated with the missing charger will come off of your account. We appreciate you returning this important piece of equipment so other Read students can use it and we can preserve our building funding.
