Infosnap codes should be coming very soon to your email box for the 2018-2019 school year. Please fill out Infosnap AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. We will not be giving out student schedules until Infosnap is completed next year. Infosnap is where parents and guardians put any pertinent medical or student information to be loaded into our system including school contacts and who can pick up your child during the day, if they will ride the bus, and more! It’s very important the district have as much information as early as possible for a smooth start to the new school year in August. You can follow the link below to get to Infosnap to fill out your registration forms, or you can go to the district website > Quick Links > Central Enrollment > Snapcode Verification.
Medication Pick-Up Procedure
ALL medications, prescribed or over the counter, MUST be picked up by a parent or guardian by the last day of school, May 31, 2018. No medications will be sent home with a student! If not picked up, it will be disposed of appropriately. If medications are needed for next school year, 2018-2019, a new West Clermont Medication Permission Form must be completed by the doctor and signed by the parent or guardian. These forms can be picked up at school or can be found on the district website under the Parents and Students drop down tab. All medications must be brought to school by a parent or guardian along with the completed form next year. We may not keep any medications at school without the proper documentation.
Yearbooks will be handed out on May 31st on the last day of school.
BIG Chromebook News!
Technology Department has decided to allow students to keep possession of their assigned Chromebook over the summer. While still property of West Clermont Local School District, the devices will provide far greater benefits to our students if allowed to use them over the summer. Of course, students should continue to bring their devices to school each day, fully charged, until directed to do otherwise by building staff. Students should also be prepared to bring their devices to school for the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year on August, 15, 2018, fully charged and ready to go. Please see the attached document for more information!
