Reminders about medications at school

All medications must be in the original container and must be accompanied by directions from a doctor.  This policy applies to all medications, including over the counter items such as ibuprofen, aspirin and cough drops.  The directions must include the student’s name, name of the medication, dosage, time to administer, how to administer, the duration of the medication, the reason for it, and any side effects.  Doctors may fax them to the school, but we cannot take them over the phone.

Schools of Choice for 2017-18

St. Johns Public Schools offers a Schools of Choice Program. We have worked with a committee of parents and our building PTO’s over the years to develop a plan, which would provide choice, when space is available, while giving priority to families wishing to attend their school of residence.

Schools of Choice placement into Eureka, Gateway North, Oakview South, and Riley Elementary Schools will be honored for the duration of the student’s continual elementary career in the district. Written requests for kindergarten and grades 1 - 5 must be submitted by May 1 and may be returned to your child’s school or delivered to the district office. You only need to complete this form if you are requesting a school outside of your assigned area.

Each year, a drawing will be held by June 15 for all intra-district Schools of Choice requests received on or before May 1 for placement into each elementary building where openings exist. Schools of Choice requests received after the May 1 deadline will go into a second pool (playpen) for a drawing to be held during the first week in August, with placements to occur ONLY IF OPENINGS EXIST.   Forms are availble by clicking here.
