Emergency Reunification Forms
If there were ever an emergency at Cascade Ridge we hope to serve your family best. One way to do this is knowing we can honor
your requests during reunification in the event of an evacuation. To best accommodate you, we need to have up-to-date emergency contact information in
Family Access, as we can only release child(ren) to those listed in our records. In addition, it would be great if you filled out the school's reunification form and kept one in each glove box
of your vehicle (or somewhere easily accessible), just in case. Both of these precautions will help in an emergency evacuation and speed up the process of getting you and your child(ren) back together.

School District Highly Capable Program and testing for second grade students is available on the Issaquah School District Website at
It is 'Nosebleed Season'
Fortunately, while nosebleeds in children can seem dramatic, they’re not usually serious. Here are the most common causes of nosebleeds in kids, the best ways to treat them, and what you
can do to help prevent them from happening again.
What causes nosebleeds in children?
There are a few common culprits behind a child’s bloody nose.
How to treat your child’s nosebleeds:
When nosebleeds become more frequent:
If your child has frequent nosebleeds, make a point to moisturize the lining of the nose. You can try:
*****Call your doctor if:
Please remember, when calling school to report your child absent for an illness, to leave a reason for the absence such as fever, diarrhea, vomiting. And remember to keep your child home
if they have ...
Fever: Temperature should remain normal (below 98.6 degrees) for 24 hours without any fever
reducing medication before returning to school
Is it accompanied by fever, headache, stomachache or swollen glands?
Vomiting: Has your child vomited in a 24 hour period?
Has there been more than one occurrence in a 24 hour period?
Are your child’s eyes crusty, bright red and/or discharging yellow or green fluid?
Nasal discharge (yellow or greenish): Is there colorful nasal mucus that is accompanied by a fever or other symptoms of an upper respiratory infection?
Cough: Does your child have a persistent, productive cough?
Is your child unusually tired, pale, have a lack of appetite, difficult to awaken, or confused?
Does your child have a body rash not associated with heat, eczema, or an allergic reaction to a medication?
The most important thing you can do to prevent illness is for you and your child to wash your hands often with warm water and soap.
Remember to always keep the school updated with new phone numbers and emergency contacts, in case your student becomes ill at school.
Information from the District
Last spring, the Issaquah School Board of Directors adopted a new Executive Limitation on Equity, called EL-16. We are now in the first phase of monitoring which requires the Superintendent
to provide an interpretation of each sub-bullet within the Executive Limitation.
The Superintendent has created a draft interpretation and invites the community to provide input into this interpretation. Once the Superintendent is satisfied with the interpretation,
he and his team will begin to collect the evidence that must be brought forward for monitoring purposes. The ISD Board of Directors is scheduled to perform its first monitoring of EL-16 at the January 23, 2019 school board meeting.
The Draft Interpretation of EL-16 is available for review or download on our website at https://www.issaquah.wednet.edu/district/equity/el-16-equity
Again, we welcome and hope to hear your feedback and comments either in person at a regular school board meeting or by emailing us at Equity@Issaquah.Wednet.edu.

What is Eager Reader?
The Eager Reader Program is a voluntary reading program sponsored by the PTSA. It is designed to encourage students to read for their enjoymentoutside of school. By giving away prizes
along the way, students and parents will both have a fun incentive to participate and connect through the shared pleasure of reading. To earn prizes, LRC I, II, and K-2nd grade students must read or be read to for 120 minutes each week, and 3rd-5th grade
students must read 180 minutes each week.
We have lots of easy ways that you can contribute to the amazing enrichment
