2019 Health Screenings

  Chadron Public Schools
              2019 Health Screenings
Dear Parents/Guardians:
Hope this letter finds each of you and your families off to a great school year!
We are writing to let you know that the required school health screenings will be held on November 12th and 13th.  The schedule will be as follows:
November 12th morning- High School (10th - 11th grades) 
November 12th afternoon - Intermediate School (3rd - 4th)
November 13th morning - Primary School (K - 2nd)
November 13th afternoon - Middle School (6th - 7th)
 These are routine school days so we will be pulling your child’s class for a short time to complete a hearing, dental, vision and height, weight screening.  A current physical is required for incoming Kindergarten and 7th grade students so they will not be participating in the height/weight portion.  Incoming Kindergarten students are required to have a current vision exam, they will not be completing that portion at this time. Kindergarten hearing screenings were already completed.  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! vc                 
CAPWN Dental will also be completing dental screenings and/or treatments for ALL grades who’s permission slips (sent home the beginning of the year) were filled out and returned.
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, we will need you to provide the school with documented results from your private providers for each area of screening by   December 1, 2019.  
Please let us know if you have any questions.
Your School Nurses,
Abie Hyatt LPN, EMT-P

Parent Teacher Conference and Book Fair was a HUGE SUCCESS!

We would like to thank all of the families that helped support our 
2019 CIS Book Fair during our Parent Teacher Conferences this Fall.  

We had 85% of our parents attend and sold over $900 books 
which helped us to earn free books for our library.  

Your support is greatly appreciated!

Seeking Parent Input

Parents and Community Members
The Chadron School Board recently accepted the resignation, due to retirement,
of Dr. Caroline Winchester, Superintendent of Schools. We are grateful for
Dr. Winchester's service to Chadron Public Schools and wish her well in her future
endeavors. 
As the Board of Education prepares for the charge of hiring a superintendent,
we would value the input of parents and community members. You will have
the opportunity to offer suggestions pertaining to skills, qualities, or characteristics the
candidate might possess in order to be successful in his or her role as superintendent
and your views about the strengths of the school district and community. 
The Nebraska Association of School Boards is assisting the board in the
superintendent search and has scheduled a visit to the district to engage
stakeholders. The board would like to invite you to attend an
information and input session with NASB Monday, October 28th
at 6:00 p.m. in the High School Library, to hear about the 
process and ask questions. 
In the event you are unable to attend the visit, you can access the online

The board would like to thank you in advance for participating in the process. 
Respectfully, 

Chadron Board of Education
