Appropriate Dress For School
As the temperature rises students become excited to wear shorts and other warm weather clothing. Please see the information below from our Elementary Handbook regarding student dress at school.  Children should dress appropriately for school and the weather conditions. Parents should decide what clothing best fits the season and the family's personal tastes. A child wearing clothing that is in bad taste, offensive, disruptive to school activities, or advertises alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs will be asked to return home and change in to acceptable clothing. Clothing items considered to be disruptive to the classroom climate include such items as tank tops, short shorts, "bike" shorts, halter tops, or "gang" apparel. Every school is climate controlled and is comfortable year round for normal clothing. Appropriate shorts will be allowed throughout the school year. Parents should mark all outer clothing (coats, boots, etc.) with some form of identification.

Kindergarten/Jump Start 2014

REGISTER NOW to be considered for an exciting opportunity for your upcoming Kindergarten student! The 2014 Kindergarten Jump Start program is a partnership between Papillion-La Vista School District and the Learning Community of Douglas and Sarpy Counties, that will take place July 14th-August 1st. The purpose of the program is to offer students a “Jump Start” into the school year by providing them with reading, writing and social opportunities prior to the start of school. Students who will be entering Kindergarten at Carriage Hill, G. Stanley Hall, Golden Hills, La Vista West, and Parkview Heights are eligible to apply. Entrance to the program will be based on a screening process.

Selected students will be eligible for free programming, free breakfast/lunch, and if needed, free childcare through Kids Club during the three-week program, and/or free transportation. In addition, these students will receive free health, dental and vision screenings, as well as free immunizations.

To be considered for the program, please call your child’s school for an application.
