Parent Reminders

Use of Prescribed Medication at School

If your child has a medical condition that requires a prescription medication be kept at school (such as an asthma inhaler, epi-pen, etc.), we MUST have a medication authorization form on file in the office.  The form must be filled out by both the parent and your child's doctor and be signed by your doctor.  A new form is required each school year.  Please bring the medication to the office in the original container.  Forms are available online under "Forms and Information" on the Rogers website, or you can pick one up in the office.

If your child needs cough drops or other over-the-counter medication during the school day, we must still have a medication authorization form on file, but it does not require a doctor's signature.  Medication should be brought to the office.

Please do not send your child to school with any medications without the form on file; the medication will not be given to your child.

District Established Outside Recess Guidelines 

Students are expected to come to school every day prepared to go outside for recess.  If the regular air temperature and/or wind chill is above 9 degrees students will be going outside unless there are other factors to consider, i.e. slick surfaces on the playground equipment, etc.  Students, who are well enough to come to school, are expected to go outside for recess unless they have a doctor’s note indicating otherwise. Please remember that all students should come prepared to participate in outdoor activities which are an important part of the normal school day.  The children will be going out for classroom recess and up to 20 minutes at lunchtime. When your child comes to school, he/she needs to have a warm jacket and possibly a hat, gloves and boots CLEARLY LABELED with their name.  An extra pair of pants, shirt, socks and gloves, to be kept in your child’s locker, comes in handy during the winter months.  Let’s work together to keep everyone warm and dry.

Late For School

At Rogers we expect every student to be on time every day.  This is both a student and parent responsibility.  When your child learns it is okay to be late, he/she is learning a life long habit that will no doubt affect his/her future in the workplace, as well as activities he/she is involved in later in life. The first bell rings at 8:00 a.m.  Classes begin at 8:05 a.m.  Late arrivals to the classroom disrupt the educational environment and students feel a sense of being disconnected when they are not part of the opening classroom activities.  Students arriving after 8:05am must enter through the Oxford door and report to the office to obtain a tardy pass prior to entering their classroom

Traffic Safety Reminder

Please be aware of the traffic signs posted around the school. Please DO NOT park and leave your vehicle on Oxford or Hamilton during morning Drop-Off and after school Pick-Up.  You will be ticketed and it is an expensive ticket!  Also be reminded that there is NO PARKING in the yellow painted areas leading up to the intersections.  The children need to be able to see up and down the street as they are crossing.

Pets at School

Rogers is a “pet friendly” place, but we need to be mindful that some students have allergies or a fear of animals.  Please do not plan on bringing your dog or cat into the school unless you have made arrangements with the classroom teacher.  As the weather gets warmer, it is fun to bring your dog to school to meet his human sibling!   PLEASE make sure your dog is leashed and comfortable with the chaos that comes of 400+ kids being let out of school on a warm day AND the presence of other animals. Also, please make sure to keep your dog on the sidewalk and off of the grassy areas and playground. Children often assume that all animals are friendly and run to them.  The results could be disastrous.

Safety is important for all Children!

Visitors

Visitor Policy

The Berkley School District has developed a visitor policy that is in place at all Berkley schools.  The purpose of this policy is to ensure a safe and secure environment for our students and staff.  All parents and visitors entering Rogers between 8:05 a.m. and 3:20 p.m. are to sign in at the office and be issued a name tag.  Guest teachers, lunch aides and administrators wear identification tags when in the building. This will help us to identify all adults present in your child's education, but it is essential that we all work together to provide a safe environment for our children.  All doors are locked throughout the school day.  All visitors must use the Oxford Street door. There is a security camera and doorbell located at this entrance.  By following this procedure, the school will be able to monitor who enters the building.  These policies will allow the Rogers' staff to continue to provide a safe place for your child to learn.

Entrance Procedure

Children are met each morning by their teacher and brought into the school.  The class should begin lining up at 7:55 a.m. and their classroom teacher will pick them up at the door at 8:00 a.m. The tardy bell will ring at 8:05 a.m.  Children are to line up with their classes at the assigned door for their teacher.  Parents should not come in with their child.  Please say goodbye at the door.
