In the next week or so each household should receive a district letter that highlights a new Oregon law that requires we teach Abuse Prevention. Please read the letter and then also visit Ms. Lockwood’s (Chapman Hill School Counselor) Website to learn how to see and ask questions about the curriculum used.

Free Full-Day Kindergarten - Fall 2016
In fall of 2016, Salem-Keizer Public Schools will offer free full-day kindergarten. Half-day kindergarten is not offered in Salem-Keizer, however many private kindergarten providers offer half-day programs. Children are not required to attend kindergarten, but attendance is strongly recommended.
Registration for fall 2016 kindergarten opens Tuesday, February 23, 2016.
Parents are asked to register for kindergarten as soon as possible. The district needs to know how many students will be attending and where in order to prepare an adequate number of classrooms. Early registration helps make sure kindergarten students will have a comfortable start to the school year.
Children who will turn five years old on or before September 10, 2016, are eligible to register. To register, please visit the school assigned to serve your residence address and pick up a registration packet.
To find the school that serves your residence, visit the boundary information page.
For more information about registering for kindergarten, please call your school or visit the Kindergarten page.
Mark your calendars!

If your 5th grade student is on an In-District Transfer to Chapman Hill, they may be assigned to a different middle school than other Chapman Hill students.
*The IDT has to start at your HOME Middle School.
See the school office for questions.
Information from the Oregon Department of Education about parents rights to opt students out of state testing is available for pick-up from the school office The information includes the state's official notice and opt-out form. Please contact Principal Rachael Harms if you have questions about the opt-out process, or about state tests given in our school.
We welcome you to come and enjoy lunch with your student, and ask that you follow these guidelines:
Please make sure you have an approved background check.
· Come at your child’s designated lunch time (K/1 11:30am, 2/3 12:00pm, 4/5 12:30pm).
· Check in at the front office and obtain a badge. If you arrive early you are more than welcome to wait on our comfy couches in the lobby.
· If you bring younger siblings along, please monitor them at all times.
· Once lunch time arrives, wait for your child in the designated lunch area (the pod closest to your child’s classroom).
· Your child may invite one classmate to eat lunch with you in the designated lunch area.
· Do not leave the designated lunch area to go to another area of the school or playground.
· After lunch, students must return to their classroom to get ready for recess. Parents and younger sibling do not go to recess with the student.
· Check out through the front office and return the badge.
Thank you for your assistance in keeping Chapman Hill a safe and structured environment for your child.
