Immunization clinic scheduled:
Any child needing immunizations for school is encouraged to attend a clinic on March 30th from 2:30 - 6:30 pm in the Edwards cafeteria on 6th St. Parents should bring shot records and must accompany any child under 15. Each immunization costs $15.19 but no student will be turned away for inability to pay. The clinic is offered by Yamhill County Public Health.
Full Day Kindergarten enrollment is now open:
District elementary schools are taking applications for enrollment in full-day kindergarten for the 2010-11 school year. The program aims to increase quality learning time for young students by lengthening the time students spend in school each day. Students spend more time exploring reading, writing, mathematics, social studies and art with highly qualified teachers. Music and physical education is introduced by classroom specialists. This is a tuition-based program located in schools based on interest and available space.
