Delaware Community School friends and families,
As our academic school year draws to a close, our children have had an opportunity
to engage in fantastic programming at DCS. All members of our learning community; teachers,
support staff, families as well as volunteers have designed meaningful educational experiences
this month.
Our International Wellness Day was a huge hit. Thanks to Mrs. Wislous and Mr. Kearnan for bringing this fun event to our students.
Our Science Night brought out many students and families for an evening of discovery
and excitement. Thanks to our parents and staff for making this event so successful.
Our gymnasium was filled to capacity for our Spring Music Concert. Our families were
treated to our strings, band and chorus. I continued to be inspired by the work of this talented
group of students, lead by Mr. Lindquist, Ms. DeVall and Mrs. Vargo.
We have purchased two new SmartBoards for the fall. Our staff has been scheduled
to receive training this month on how to fully integrate this exciting new technology into our
lessons. In addition, we have 24 newly refurbished and operational computers in our computer
lab as of last week.
Finally, please see the updated information on our SNN (School News Notifier) system. This looks to be a strong vehicle to relay important information to our families.
Have a safe and relaxing summer!

A los amigos y las familias de la Escuela de la Comunidad de Delaware,
Según nos acercamos al final del año escolar, nuestros estudiantes han tenido la oportunidad de captar la programación fantástica en DCS. Todos los miembros de nuestra comunidad de aprendizaje; los profesores, el personal de ayuda, las familias así como voluntarios han diseñado experiencias educativas significativas este mes.
Nuestro Día Internacional de la Salud y el Bienestar Físico fue un éxito. Gracias a la Sra. Wislous y al
Sr. Kearnan por traer este evento de diversión a nuestros estudiantes.
Nuestra Noche de Ciencia trajo muchos estudiantes y familias para una tarde de descubrimiento y de
entusiasmo. Gracias a nuestros padres y al personal por hacer este evento exitoso.
Nuestro gimnasio se llenó a capacidad para nuestro concierto de música de la primavera. Nuestras
familias disfrutaron de instrumentos de cuerdas, la banda y el coro. Sigo inspirado por el trabajo de este grupo talentoso de estudiantes, bajo la dirección del Sr. Lindquist, la Srta. DeVall y la Sra.Vargo.
Hemos comprado dos “SmartBoards” nuevas para el otoño. Nuestro personal recibirá entrenamiento
este mes en cómo integrar completamente esta nueva y emocionante tecnología en nuestras lecciones.
Además, nosotros hemos tenido 24 computadoras nuevas en nuestro laboratorio de computadoras desde la
semana pasada.
Finalmente, mire por favor la información actualizada sobre nuestro sistema de SNN (notificador de
las noticias de la escuela). El sistema luce ser un vehículo fuerte para retransmitir la información importante a
nuestras familias.
¡Deseo que tengan un verano seguro y relajante!

Another year has come and gone and it is very hard to believe. I would like to extend my thanks to all for your
patience, assistance and cooperation. I wish all a very happy, healthy and enjoyable summer. Please review the following if you are registering a new student/s and medical regulations for specific grade levels:
Communicable disease control is a primary responsibility of school and public health authorities. Mandatory
immunization is one aspect of a comprehensive communicable disease control program. N.Y.S Public Health Law, Section 2164 mandates that schools not permit a child to be admitted unless the parent/guardian provides the school with a
certificate of immunization or proof from a physician that the child is in the process of receiving the required immunizations. Students need the following:
Diphtheria (Primary series) 3 doses required
Hepatitis B
3 doses required
Measles
3 doses required
Mumps
1 dose required
Polio
3 doses required
Rubella
1 dose require
Varicella
1 dose required
Please note that Pre K students require only 1 MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella). Kindergarten requires 2.
All of the above immunizations must be documented by your physician or the Health Department where the
child received the immunizations, or must be from an official copy of the immunization record from the child’s previous
school.
Education Law and Regulations of the Commissioner of Education require physical examinations of children
when they:
Enter a school district for the first time
Are in grades Pre-K, K, 2, 4, 7 and 10
Participate in interscholastic sports
Are referred to the Committee on Special Education
If a report of a child’s examination is submitted from a primary health care provider, it must be signed by a physician, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant. Physical forms (blank) will be in your child’s last report card in grades
Pre-K, 1, 3. Physicals must be no more than twelve months prior to the commencement of the school year in which the
examination is required. Students must also have dental certificates if the child is entering the district for the first time,
and in grades Pre-K, 2, and 4.
School Personnel are often asked to given medicine to children during school hours. Many medicines CAN be
taken effectively outside school hours. If your doctor feels it is absolutely necessary to administer medication in school,
contact the Health Office to obtain a Medication Permission form. The form needs to be filled out by the physician and
parents/guardians need to fill out bottom half of the form before medication can be administered. Medication must be
delivered to the Health office with your child’s name and pharmacy label on the medication to be administered. Medications should not be transported to and from school. Parents/guardians should ask the pharmacist for two containers,
one to remain at home and one at school. Medications must NOT be carried to school by students on school buses.
This presents a danger to all students. Students may NOT carry medication on their person during the school day.
It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to keep the school informed of any health condition that would affect their child’s safety, school performance, or toleration of physical activity. If for any reason a child is unable to participate in the physical education program, the parent/guardian must provide appropriate documentation from the attending
physician indicating the problem, the specific limitations and the duration of those limitations. When the child may return
to gym participation, we must have a note from the physician indicating this.
It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian to inform the school of any contagious diseases or unusual health
problems that the child may have. In this way we can plan for the child’s safety and special needs in order to maximize
the child’s educational experience.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me at 475-6755.
It has been a pleasure caring for you child/dren this year. Hoping to see you in the Fall,
Sincerely,
Linda Johnson

Es difícil creer que otro año vino y se fue. Me gustaría dar las gracias a todos por su paciencia, asistencia y cooperación. Les deseo a todos un verano muy feliz, saludable y agradable. Por favor, revise la siguiente información si usted
está registrando un nuevo estudiante y los reglamentos médicos específicos para los diferentes grados:
El control de las enfermedades es una responsabilidad primaria de la escuela y las autoridades de salud pública. La vacunación obligatoria es un aspecto de un programa integral de lucha contra las enfermedades transmisibles.
La ley de Salud Pública del Estado de Nueva York, Sección 2164 ordena que las escuelas no permitan que un niño sea
admitido a menos que el padre o apoderado proporcione a la escuela con un certificado de vacunación o prueba de un
médico que el niño se encuentra en proceso de recibir las vacunas requeridas. Los estudiantes necesitan las siguientes:
La difteria (serie primaria) 3 dosis requeridas
Hepatitis B 3 dosis requeridas
El sarampión 3 dosis requeridas
Parotiditis 1 dosis requerida
Polio 3 dosis requeridas
La rubéola 1 dosis requieren
Varicela 1 dosis requerida
Por favor, tome nota de que los estudiantes de Pre-K sólo requieren un MMR (Sarampión, Paperas, Rubéola).
Jardín Infantil requiere 2.
Todas las vacunas listadas anteriormente deberán estar documentadas por su médico o el Departamento de
Salud, donde el niño recibió las vacunas, o una copia oficial de la cartilla de vacunación de la escuela anterior del niño.
La ley de Educación y el Reglamento del Comisionado de Educación requiere exámenes físicos de los niños
cuando:
Entran a un distrito escolar por primera vez
Si está en los grados Pre-K, K, 2, 4, 7 y 10
Participan en deportes interescolares
Si son referidos al Comité de Educación Especial
Si un informe de examen de un niño es presentado por el proveedor de atención primaria de salud, debe ser
firmado por un médico, enfermera o asistente médico. La forma física (en blanco) estará en la tarjeta del ultimo informe
de su hijo en los grados Pre-K, 1, 3. Los exámenes físicos deben ser no más de doce meses antes del comienzo del
año escolar en que se exija el examen. Los estudiantes también deben tener certificados dentales si el niño está entrando en el distrito por primera vez, y en los grados Pre-K, 2, y 4.
Se le pide con frecuencia al personal de la escuela que administre medicina a los niños durante el horario escolar. Muchos medicamentos pueden tomarse con eficacia fuera del horario escolar. Si su médico considera que es absolutamente necesario administrar la medicina en la escuela, comuníquese con la Oficina de Salud para obtener un formulario de autorización de medicamentos. El formulario debe ser llenado por el médico y los padres/apoderados deben
llenar la mitad inferior del formulario antes de que el medicamento pueda ser administrado. Los medicamentos deben
ser entregados a la oficina de Salud con el nombre de su hijo y la etiqueta de la farmacia sobre el medicamento que se
administra. Los medicamentos no deben ser transportados hacia y desde la escuela. Los padres o apoderados deberán
solicitar al farmacéutico dos envases, uno para permanecer en la casa y el otro en la escuela. Los medicamentos no
deben ser traídos a la escuela por los estudiantes en los autobuses escolares. Esto presenta un peligro para todos los
estudiantes. Los estudiantes no pueden cargar medicamentos durante el día escolar.
Es la responsabilidad del padre o apoderado el mantener la escuela informada de cualquier condición de salud
que afectan a la seguridad de sus hijos, bajo rendimiento escolar, o la tolerancia de la actividad física. Si por alguna
razón, un niño es incapaz de participar en el programa de educación física, el padre o apoderado debe presentar la
documentación adecuada del médico tratante indicando el problema, las limitaciones y la duración de esas limitaciones.
Cuando el niño puede regresar a participar en el gimnasio, debemos tener una nota del médico que indica esto.
Es la responsabilidad de los padres o apoderados el informar a la escuela de alguna enfermedad contagiosa o
problemas poco comunes de salud que el niño puede tener. De esta manera podemos planear para la seguridad del
niño y sus necesidades especiales con el fin de maximizar la experiencia educativa del niño.
Como siempre, si tiene alguna pregunta o inquietud, no dude en llamarme al 475-6755.
Ha sido un placer cuidar sus niños este año. Espero verlos en el otoño.
Atentamente,
Sra. Linda Johnson

International Wellness Day
At Delaware Community School
Día Internacional de la Salud y el Bienestar Físico
en la escuela de la comunidad de Delaware
What a way to end our 2009-2010 school year! Students, staff and some parents came together to celebrate
an International Wellness Day in style at Delaware. Under the leadership of our Physical Education Teacher,
Mr. Kearnan, we enjoyed a day of complete physical fitness. The students traveled through six stations that
brought excitement, laughter, and a strong sense of sportsmanship. This was an event enjoyed by participants of all ages. Thank you to Mr. Kearnan
and to everyone who made this event so wonderful!

Science Night/Noche de Ciencias
On Friday, June 11, the DCS gym
was a hub of scientific discovery as
"Wonderland" transformed the gym
into DCS's first annual Science Night.
There were smiles all around as kids
made their way through 19 science
stations. Along the way, they made
magnets, bubbles and reed instruments, used cabbage juice to test for
acids and bases, built marble roller
coasters, studied things through microscopes, and got to handle real
bones, among other things. Keep
wondering, and get ready for next
year's Wonderland!
El viernes el 11 de junio, el gimnasio de
DCS se convirtió en un centro de descubrimiento científico cuando el “País de
las Maravillas” transformó el gimnasio en
la primera noche anual de la ciencia de
DCS.
Vimos sonrisas en los alrededores según
los niños caminaron a través de 19 estaciones de ciencia. En la caminata, hicieron imanes, burbujas e instrumentos de
lámina, usaron jugo de col para probar
los ácidos y las bases, construyeron
montañas rusas de mármol, observaron
objetfos a través de los microscopios y
lograron manejar huesos auténticos,
entre otras cosas. ¡Siga su curiosidad y
prepárese para el “País de las Maravillas” del próximo año!
