Student Schedules Online

Nottingham guidance counselors have been working diligently to create schedules for their students. Parents and students can access the Home Access Center to look at student schedules as they stand now  from the Nottingham FACES website at www.nottinghamptso.org.  Scroll down to the LINKS menu on the right side of the home page, and look for Home Access Center.  You can also get to the Home Access Center from the school district’s website at www.scsd.us

Schedules will not be mailed prior to the beginning of school, so you are encouraged to view the schedules online via the Home Access Center.  If you have any questions or concerns about a schedule, please contact the guidance counselor who is listed on your student’s schedule (look at the Registration page rather than the Schedule page in Home Access).  Please make sure to contact the counselor listed, as many of the counselor assignments have changed this year.   (Use the Nottingham Teacher/Staff Directory link on the FACES website.)

Students will pick up a finalized schedule on the first day of school.

Don’t forget the welcome back reception Tuesday, September 3rd.

* Freshman parents, students and families @ 5:30

* Ice Cream social for the Nottingham community @ 6:30

* Welcome Back FACES Meeting @7:00

The first full day for all students will be Thursday, September 5th

If Students Need to Take Medicine at School

Nottingham school nurse Patricia Pelligrini shares the following information for families:

If a student needs to take medicine in school, we must have the doctor’s order, a signed parent permission form and the medicine in the original container dispensed by the pharmacist. Medication orders must be renewed every school year, so if you had medication last year, including inhalers, the orders must be renewed.

If your student has any physical education restrictions, no swimming, for example, that order from the doctor must also be renewed. Your Health Care Provider can fax the orders to 435-4196.

The school nurse’s number is 435-4139; email is ppelligrini [at] scsd [dot] us

Once again, the SCSD is able to offer breakfast and lunch free of charge to all students.

Breakfast and Lunch are Free This Year

Once again, the SCSD is able to offer breakfast and lunch free of charge to all students. However, the district requests that ALL families complete and return the application form for free/reduced meals that will arrive in the mail in a few weeks.

See this statement from the district’s Food and Nutrition Services office.  Please note the last paragraph.

Community Eligibility Option

The Syracuse City School District has entered into an agreement with The NYS Department of Education Child Nutrition Administration, to offer meals free of charge to all students of the City School District beginning with the 2012/2013 school year.  To qualify, our student population is directly matched to the benefits they receive through several documented programs. Reimbursement is based on the percentage (plus a multiplier) of documented students. This reimbursement is guaranteed for a minimum of four years, with an option for a fifth available.

While this program benefits all students regarding meal service, it is still vitally important that we continue to collect eligibility applications to continue other services offered by the district.  There are many competitive grants that use the financial information collected from the eligibility application.

Annually, the Syracuse City School District sends out an application to all parents or guardians of students attending the district requesting the application be completed and returned. A self addressed stamped envelope is provided with the application. If you have received a request to complete an eligibility application please complete one application for all family members. This assists in getting all of the information on one application, and eliminates the need to complete an application for each child.  The application is valid during the current school year and through the last day of September of the next school year.

If you feel you do not qualify you may complete the application by stating that you do not qualify across the body of the application. Please identify the students at the top of the application, and sign at the bottom. No other information is necessary.  If you are unsure whether you will qualify, a household income chart is included with the request for application.  If your income, based on your family size, falls below the income listed in the income chart you qualify and we request that you fill out the application completely and return it.
