Announcements

  • Golden Eagle Families!  Let’s get your kiddos ready to come back to school!
     
    As promised, the SASD IT team, secretaries, teachers, and administrators have worked diligently to roll out  the District’s 1:1 iPad initiative. Next week, with the help of our awesome Golden Eagle Families, we will place 2200 iPads into the hands of our in-person and online students. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ–ค
     
    ~Pickup schedule:  The iPad pickup schedule, below, is based on each parent/guardian’s LAST NAME.  We ask that ONE parent/guardian, bring his or her  child/children on the designated day, during the designated hours. As per the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s July 1, 2020 order, mask-wearing and social distancing are required. ๐Ÿ˜ท
     
    ~Pickup Location:  IPad pickup for all grade levels will be located at the Somerset Junior High School.  We ask that parents/guardians and students enter through Junior High School doors and heed the taped areas on the floor. 
     
    ~Pickup process:  Upon arrival, a District employee will guide parents/guardians and students through the pickup process, which includes an iPad orientation.  This should take approximately 15 minutes (plus any wait time).  
     
    ~Alternate pickup arrangements:  Parents/guardians who are not able to pick up their children’s iPads on the specified day will receive an electronic communication system call during the week of August 17, 2020 with further directions.  
     
    ~Your patience:  Please know, we have never held this kind of distribution before (2200 iPads!).  We are mid-summer, mid-pandemic, and mid-planning to create THE BEST educational experience for all of our Golden Eagles.  ALL of the volunteers present for iPad pickup are participating because they care about our students. Your patience and your arrival according to the rules and the schedule are GREATLY appreciated! 
     
    ~Streamlining the process:  We STRONGLY SUGGEST parents/guardians complete the registration component of the process by clicking on the Family ID link, below.  This will shorten the pickup and orientation.  To make various processes more convenient for parents and guardians, the  Family ID app will be used for other registrations throughout the year.  Hop on to Family ID at the link below and get this process started! 
     
    ~FamilyID:

    You will create an account and then proceed to the iPad 1:1 Agreement 2020-2021.  Parents/guardians will complete only one registration, no matter how many children they have at SASD.  There is an area on the form to add all children’s names.

  • Children's Health Insurance Program 

     

    CHIP poster

    The Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers uninsured kids and teens up to age 19. With more than 139,000 uninsured children in Pennsylvania, this is great news for families! CHIP provides quality, comprehensive health insurance for routine doctor visits, prescriptions, dental, eye care, eyeglasses, mental health and much more. CHIP covers uninsured kids who are not eligible for Medical Assistance. For most families, CHIP is free – for others, it is low cost.

  • School Immunization Regulations

    The Department of Health has changed school immunization regulations and Somerset Area School District wants to give families plenty of time to ensure their children have received the required vaccines, listed below.

    Children in ALL grades (K-12) need the following immunizations for attendance:

    • 4 doses of tetanus, diphtheria and acellular pertussis
    • 4 doses of polio
    • 2 doses of measles, mumps and rubella
    • 3 doses of hepatitis B
    • 2 doses of varicella (chickenpox) or evidence of immunity


    7th through 12th grade students need to meet ADDITIONAL immunization requirements for attendance:

    • 2 doses of meningococcal conjugate vaccine (MCV): The 1st dose is given 11-15 years of age and the 2nd dose is required at age 16 or entry into 12th grade
    • 1 dose of tetanus, diphtheria, acellular pertussis (Tdap)


    As always, your child's physician is the best source of information about immunizations and all of your child's health needs.
