School Board Meeting – September 26, 2017

We recognize that you are the most important factor in your child’s education.  With Family Access, you can play an even bigger role in the learning process.

To make it easier for you and to get involved, we have provided you with the ability to view your child’s student information anytime, day or night with a Family Access.  You can even download the Family Access App to your cell phone.

This year we have implemented an on-line Year Start Student Update process.  This will eliminate the majority of paperwork that comes home.  Parents can log in and update home demographics and student health concerns.  Take a moment to watch the overview video to find out more about Family Access and see how you can benefit being connected online.

Don’t have an account yet or simply forgot your password, we can help.  Family Access applications are easy to fill out, return to your child’s school and an email will be sent to you with your login information and temporary password.

We look forward to working with you as we transition to this new on-line process.  Please be sure and talk with your child’s school office if you have questions, need to sign up.

News from Pioneer’s New School Nurse

Dear Families:

I consider it a privilege and pleasure to be your school nurse this year. I look forward to meeting all of you.  As a teacher turned nurse, I understand the connection between wellness and effective learning and am committed to doing all that I can to serve you well.  As the school year approaches, it is a priority to have “Individualized Health Plans” and “Emergency Health Plans” in place for students with diagnoses indicating specific care at school.

I am looking forward to meeting with all who need this service and have set aside September 5th – 12th for appointments with parents/guardians to make sure we are prepared for the first day of school. I will be reaching out to you all to make appointments, but you can also contact me at 360-427-2737 to set up an appointment.

A “permission for medication administration at school” form can be found on this website.  This form is required for any student who will be given medications at school, and it will make for best practice if we have everything in place before the first day of school.

A reminder to kindergarten parents/guardians, please remember to turn in your child’s “Certification of Immunization Status” and “Student Health Information” forms before the first day of school.

I welcome you to contact me with any questions or concerns.


Misty Niehl, RN
