    2020-21 Preschool Round-Up

     

    We would like to officially welcome you and your student to Boyd County Preschool!  It is an unusual situation this year, but Mrs. McBride and Mrs. Reiman want to reach out to you to let you know they missed seeing you at Preschool Round-up, due to Directive Health Measures, but are SO EXCITED to meet you and welcome you to Preschool. 

    We will make plans to have a Preschool Open House in late summer, but in the meantime, we want to share this important information with you, that would usually be shared during Preschool Round- up.

     

    On our school website www.boydcounty.org, you will find a “Parents” tab.  Please click on that tab and find “Preschool Forms”.  Here you will find the essentials for registering your child for kindergarten.  They include:

    -A Registration form

    -An updated Immunization form to be completed by your doctor.  Some doctors may have their own form for you to bring to school.  That will be fine.

    -Don’t forget that we need an original copy of your child’s birth certificate, as well.  You may bring that to school and we will make our own copy.  

    These forms may be brought all together when we are finally able to have our Open House. 

     

    Finally, we are interested to know which campus your child will be attending. There is a link on the school website under Parents Tab (Preschool) that will allow you to click on the campus you plan on attending.  The survey will also be available on our school Facebook page. 

    Two  important changes with our Preschool Program:

    -At the BC Lynch campus: The Preschool program will be only available in the afternoon.  The 3 year olds will attend Monday- Thursday.  The Pre-Kindergarten (4K) will attend Monday through Friday.   

    -At the BC Butte campus: The 3 year olds will attend in the morning from Monday-Thursday.  The Pre-kindergartners (4K) will attend in the afternoon from Monday- Friday. 

    We are excited to offer this extra day for our 4K Prekindergarten students this year!  It will help develop the skills they may need as they enter kindergarten the next year. 

     

    Please call Cindy Johnson at 402-775-2201 if you have any questions.  Also, since we were not able to have an official Preschool Round-up, please help spread the word to our families who may have a Preschool eligible child.  All children who are 3 to 4 years old and have not turned 5 years of age before July 31, 2020, may enroll for  the 2020-2021 School Year.

    2020-21 School Physical Information

    To: Area Parents

    Regarding: School Physicals

    From: Cindy Jakubowski RN, Clinic Manager

    Avera Medical Group O’Neill

    As the 2019-2020 school year comes to a close, we continue to be in awe of what an unprecedented end of the year it is!  This has been a time of unknowns to say the least.   We are hopeful as we look ahead to the next school year with high hopes!  As you may be aware, NSAA will not require Pre-Participation Physical Examinations (PPE);  an extension for the 2019-2020 PPE has been given for ONE additional year, making them good for the 2020-2021 school year.  The exemption does NOT include incoming Freshmen.  (Kindergarten, 7th grade, and students transferring out of state are still required.)

    Despite this extension, Providers with Avera Medical Group O’Neill continue to be concerned with the health and wellness of each individual student.  Wellness exams are an opportune time to catch children up on the recommended immunizations, detect problems that may affect learning and overall health.  It is a way to educate kids and families on safety issues as well as good health practices.   We do encourage parents/guardians to schedule a Well Child Exam with the provider of their choice.   

    We want to take this opportunity to inform parents what a Well Child Check is.  A Well Child Check is a school physical PLUS includes a much more in depth review and will include the following:

    1. A complete head to toe physical
    2. A complete set of vital signs to include, height, weight, BMI, heart rate, respiratory rate and blood pressure.
    3. A review of your child’s allergies
    4. A review of your child’s medications
    5. A review of your child’s immunizations, along with receiving any immunizations that are due.
    6. A review of your child’s past medical history
    7. A review of your child’s social history, which includes risky behaviors such as tobacco usage, choices in foods and caffeine use, alcohol use, seat belt use to name a few.
    8. Most importantly this is an excellent opportunity for your provider to educate your teen about health lifestyles and behaviors. 

    The above items are just the starting point for what is offered during a Well Child Check, as you can see it is much different than the brief screening.  The healthcare industry is trying to educate everyone on the importance of prevention, this is one way we can start making our teens healthier. 

    Avera Medical Group will be offering Well Child Checks throughout the summer during clinical hours of Monday thru Friday 8am to 5pm, as well as at our satellite clinics in Chambers, Ewing, Page and Spencer.  We are highly encouraging parents to schedule your child with a provider any time throughout the summer.  We do want to encourage you to get your child in sooner rather than later.  We want to make sure your providers have the adequate time to spend with your child.  We encourage you to check with your insurance company in regards to how your family plan works.

    Please make sure you review your child’s immunization record prior to their appointment.  If you have questions as to if they need vaccinations, please call and visit with a nurse. 

    When you come to your appointment please bring the following.

    1.  A parent (we will need parent permission to administer vaccines)
    2. Your child’s Immunization record
    3. COMPLETED School physical form if required (check with your school, OR download from the NSAA website)

    We invite you to call us with questions or concerns at 402-336-2900.  Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your Healthcare Team!  Best of luck school year.

    Sincerely,

    Avera Medical Group O’Neill Providers and Staff
