 New Teacher Website Tool Survey

A leadership advisory team has formed to explore a replacement for Connect as the teacher website tool. As part of our selection process we would like to hear from parents about what they would like in a classroom web tool.

Our goals include finding a tool that:

  • Meets communication needs for teacher to student and families
  • Provides a consistent look and feel throughout the district
  • Integrates with other online tools such as Office365, Classlink, Skyward and online textbooks
  • Is accessible to persons with disabilities
  • Includes translation tools for a variety of languages

Head Lice

 Head lice is a common childhood nuisance. Early identification and treatment are essential to reducing the spread of head lice.  Please check your child’s head every 7-10 days for the presence of lice.  Things to look for:

  • Observing your child for signs of itching
  • Inspecting your child’s scalp for lice (very small living insects which are often hard to see and range from gray to black in color)
  • Inspecting your child’s hair for nits. Nits are tiny, smooth, oval eggs which can vary in color from white to yellowish-white to dark brown. Nits resemble small flakes of dandruff, however, unlike dandruff; they are glued firmly at an angle to the side of a single hair shaft.
  • Nits are frequently seen at the nape of the neck and behind the ears, but can also be found anywhere on the head.

 If you find signs of head lice, (live lice and/or nits/eggs), please notify the School Nurse.

Exceptional Placement provides an additional acceleration option for students who are ready to skip CC 7/8 and begin middle school in CC 8/Algebra 1. Interested students must demonstrate sufficient mastery of CC 7/8 concepts and skills on a district-administered assessment. The exceptional placement assessment will be offered to interested students on Wednesday, June 19 from 2:00-4:00 OR Wednesday, June 26 from 4:00-6:00 at the Issaquah Middle School Library. *Since CC6 math is taught in the 5th grade MERLIN program, 5th grade MERLIN students will take the CC 7/8 Math Mastery Assessment test in their classrooms each spring.

To register to take the Exceptional Placement assessment please complete the sign up at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLScMtYzRkyNU2rTip-OQT4xEdrGsdTgwYledJk2_p3322xSa0Q/viewform?usp=sf_link by June 7. Once a student has qualified for Exceptional Placement, parents make the final determination of whether or not to accept that placement. Further information will be provided to families of students who qualify for Exceptional Placement to help inform this decision.
