Welcome to Rushwood

Dear Rushwood Families:
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! 
To our new Kindergarten families, WELCOME!  Please mark your calendars for Thursday, August 15th, from 6:00-8:00pm.  We have a separate evening planned for you AND your child(ren).  We will begin our presentation in our gym at 6:00 pm.  More to come on August 15th, from 6:00-8:00pm.  We are looking forward to meeting you!

Meet and Greet night at Rushwood is Monday, August 19th any time between 5:00-7:00 pm for Grades 1-4.  This night is for both students and families.  Note that Kindergarten teachers will NOT be present, as the night of August 15th covers this.  However, if you are a family that cannot attend on August 15th for Kindergarten night, you are welcome to come on the 19th.  

1st Day School Supplies has inspected each kit through their Quality Department. However, if you find a concern with your child’s supplies, for whatever reason, please send an email to [email protected]com  and they will take care of your needs directly and immediately.

If you did not pre-order supplies, I am attaching a link for you to see what supplies are required at each grade level.  https://www.nordoniaschools.org/Downloads/2019-2020%20Student%20Supply%20List%20K-42.pdf

The first day of school is Thursday, August 22nd for all students.  Our doors open at 8:40 am and school starts promptly at 9:00 am.  Note;  if you are driving your student to school, we close the back doors (by Safety Town) at 8:55 am.  If you arrive later than 8:55 am, please come to main entrance (with the exception of the first days of school).  If you arrive later than 9:00 am, you will need to come into Rushwood and sign your child in to school. 

School dismissal begins at 3:30 p.m. Please have car codes displayed in your vehicle. Car codes will be passed out during Kindergarten and Meet, Greet, and Drop night. Call our main office at 330.467.0581 if you need additional car codes at any time during the year. Your car codes have an informational backside to them that should filled out in the event of an evacuation and need for reunification. (Reunification sites will be determined based on the situation, and you will be notified at such time where you will pick up your child(ren).  This car code is what you will bring with you. If picking up a child during the school day, please stop in the office to sign him/her out.

Mandatory online forms for the 2019-2020 school year are available for you to fill out at www.nordoniaschools.org/parentportal. These forms must be updated each year and are invaluable for student safety in the case of an emergency. If you are new to the district, you will need to set up a parent account and then add your student with their student ID number. If you need your child’s student ID, please contact the Rushwood office at  [email protected] or 330-467-0581. Please be sure to complete ALL required forms prior to the start of the school year.  We are including a link to our district site for you to complete them. https://nordonia.esvportal.com/

Here's to a fantastic year ahead! As always, feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns.
