Dear Parents/Guardians of Ezra Eby Elementary Students:


This handbook contains a wealth of information to assist you in better understanding the operation of our district’s elementary school. Please review this material carefully, keeping this handbook handy for future reference.
A school is most successful when both family and school work together to ensure a quality education for all children. You are invited to share your child’s education through your involvement with us in this challenging experience.
This guide is not meant to take the place of personal communication between home and school. Please know that your questions, concerns and suggestions are always welcome. Do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
Yours in education,

Michel G. McGonegal

REGISTRATION



Entrance Age

In order for a child to enter Kindergarten in Michigan Public Schools, he/she must reach five years of age on or before November 1st of the year of entrance into school. Our Young 5's program is recommended for students turning 5 after September 1st.


Napoleon’s annual Kindergarten Parent Information meetings are held in the spring of each school year. The following information is required upon enrollment: the child’s certified birth certificate, a vision screening, and two proofs of residency, this includes:

  • Certified Birth Certificate

  • Vision Screening

  • Up to date Immunizations

  • Physical

  • Proof of Residency.

Immunizations are available at the Jackson County Health Department. Pupils not properly immunized will be excluded from school until requirements are met or until a waiver is signed and on file.



EMERGENCY INFORMATION CARDS

It is required that each child has an emergency card on file in the school office. The card should list the number to call in case a parent is not at home, as well as the doctor or hospital to contact in case a parent or emergency number cannot be reached. It is very important that the emergency information be kept up to date. Please notify the school office of any changes - either in the home address, telephone number, parent work number or new emergency number. The people allowed to pick up your child must be named on the emergency card. We will not release your child to anyone else.




TRANSFER INFORMATION


If you are moving out of the Napoleon School District, please notify the office personnel by telephone or email to karen.wood@napoleonschools.org. Upon registration in the new school district, a request for your child’s records will be sent from that office. The Napoleon Schools will release records to the new school only after the request has been received.

ATTENDANCE


If your child is not in school, he/she cannot learn. It is very important that students attend school and are on time. If your child misses school three (3) or more times a month, a note will be sent to you. It is your responsibility to call the school to resolve the attendance concern. Repeated absences will be reported to the Attendance Officer at the Intermediate School District. Excessive tardiness (3 or more per month) will be treated in a like manner. Family vacations are not viewed as excused absences. Please make every effort to arrange your vacations around the school schedule. Since our curriculum includes career awareness, we do not accept the national “Take Your Child to Work” day as an excused absence. We do not encourage participation in the program on that designated day. Early withdrawal, as well as late entrance will be counted as an unexcused tardy.
