This year there is a slight change to how students Enter and Exit the Pemetic School.
Playground Door - 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th Grade
Front Door - Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade
Music/Gym Doors - 6th, 7th, and 8th
Students will be dismissed through the same exits for dismissal. If you are planning on picking up your child, please be sure to call the office ahead of time at 244-5502. If you already shared through the survey that you are always picking your child up, the office already has that information.
First day of school is September 2, 2021. School starts at 8:15. Please call the office at 244-5502 and let them know if your child is going to be absent, tardy or dismissed that day. Thank you.
On September 7th we will start pooled testing. I will need parental consent for pooled testing and also rapid testing consent for follow up using BinaxNow. Links for consents can be found on the school website. Pooled testing will be every Tuesday weekly. Students will swab their own noses with instruction. Please be aware that physicals are required for grades 5-8 if participating in any extra-curricular school activities if a physical was not done last year. Call, text or email with any questions!

Back to School Checklist
Well-Child Checks/Physicals: Required for grades K and encouraged yearly for following school years. Required for anyone who participates in middle school athletics. Medical approval is required for grades 5 and 7 who wish to play sports.
Annual Health Update and Medication Permission Form: All parents please fill this out and return.
Immunizations: Your child must be up to date on immunizations before the new law takes into effect on September 1st, 2021. No child will be permitted to attend school until required vaccines have been administered.
Does your child need an action plan? Examples are severe food allergies which requires epinephrine and asthma which requires inhalers. Both action plans need to be signed off by their healthcare provider yearly. Asthma and Epi-Pens also require a signature from their healthcare provider on the “AOS 91 Medication Administration Form”.
Does your child need to take prescribed medication during school hours? Parent/ Guardian and their healthcare provider need to sign the “AOS 91 Medication Administration Form”.
All forms above can be found on the Pemetic school website under Nurse’s Office.
Forms can be faxed to the school or emailed to me directly. You can call or text me at 207-888-1773.
My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. I Hope everyone had a great summer and I am looking forward to the new school year!

When there is a change in your child's dismissal routine ( getting picked up instead of riding the bus, different adult picking up your child, leaving early for an appointment, etc), please let the office know by calling 244-5502. This will help eliminate confusion, anxiety and delays at dismissal time. When dropping off or picking up your child at irregular times, please call the office to let them know. These are really important steps that must be followed for the safety of all of our students.
Parents -- Self Care is important! Remember the announcements on planes to put your own oxygen mask on before helping others? The stresses of the pandemic coupled with the stresses of parenting can make it so you forget to take care of YOU. Check out these Self Care Suggestions for Parents. You may want to review the list and select one or two to incorporate into your daily routines. You could add a self care practice to things you already do (e.g., with your cup of coffee). If you talk with someone else and share what you plan to do, you will be more likely to do it. Then you can check in about how it is going, review the list of suggestions, get and give encouragement, etc.
Becoming active and involved in your child’s education, builds healthy children and a healthy community. A great way to do so, is by joining the Pemetic PTO.
