School bus road-e-o

CCPS bus drivers gathered June 3 for a road-e-o, a friendly competition to demonstrate skills needed to safely transport students. The road-e-o included spotting safety problems and navigating an obstacle course. Some school system leaders also tried driving a bus (accompanied by an experienced trainer). School Board Chair Dot Heffron, Chief of Operations Josh Davis and Transportation Director Calvin Frye only knocked over a few cones on the obstacle course!

Retrieve your student’s medication June 3-4
Parents and guardians must pick up their children’s medications from the school clinic, but the medications must be available for student use through the last day of school on May 31. All remaining student medications, including over-the-counter medications, may be picked up from the school clinic during normal school hours June 3-4.
After 4 p.m. June 4, all leftover medications will be packed and turned over to the Chesterfield County Police Department for disposal. Once medications are packed for police collection, they cannot be retrieved so it is important for parents to pick up medications on time. Late pickups are not permitted, and medications cannot be stored at the school during the summer.
All medications must be picked up even if your student will attend summer school. At the beginning of summer school, parents will need to provide children’s medication to the summer school coordinator at your child’s summer site. Please contact your child’s school nurse to request a copy of the medication order for all medications being administered during summer school.

Hello, MCMS Parents, The end of the school year is upon us. Please check your student's grades to determine if they need to attend Summer School. If you have already registered your student for Summer School, or intend to register your student for Summer School by the May 28th deadline, please take note of the following: If your student is attending summer school, you will need to complete this transportation request form. This form will allow you to make changes for your child's summer school transportation arrangement OR, if your child will use the same type of transportation as this school year, (i.e. bus, parent pick up, alternate address for a certain day of the week, etc), then you will complete the form and check the box stating there are no changes. If you have any questions, please contact me at: kristal_mcintire@ccpsnet.net As always, thank you for your support of your student's education. Here is the link for transportation https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfusOm2B-i9476zqzO2uF0iA-EQn23Bw9U_OG_xMR7IfzjJjg/viewform
