Dear Oxbow Families:

Welcome to the 2017-18 school year!  New this year, we are requiring all students and parents to complete the Back-to-School packet, an online registration process. Starting August 1st, the online Back-to-School process will available to families by logging into Skyward Family Access.

PLEASE NOTE: It is crucial that you complete the additional Emergency Contacts for your child in Step 2e.  Without your permission, we can not release a student to anyone other than those listed as an Emergency Contact.  Also, the system will only allow you to add these contacts under the following relationships: Mother, Father, Relative, or Other.  

This process needs to be completed in order to view your child’s schedule on Friday, August 25th.

Families are encouraged to complete this process at home.  For any families needing assistance, HVS will provide an open computer lab at Country Oaks Elementary. This lab will have computers available and a staff member present for all parents/guardians needing help.

Health Plan of Care Forms:

Medication: If your child requires medication, prescription or non-prescription, during school hours, the school must have consent from a doctor. District personnel cannot accept medication or administer medication without documentation from a physician.

Medical Conditions: In addition to administration of medication, some students require a health plan to provide optimal support for medical concerns such as asthma, allergies, seizures, etc. If your child requires a health plan, please visit the Health and Wellness page listed below, to access the appropriate form for your child's needs. Once completed and signed by the physician, please provide the form to your child's school.

All health plans expire at the close of the current school year and a new authorized health plan must be submitted prior to the start of each school year.

Plan of Care forms can be obtained by visiting our HVS's Health & Wellness page. If you have questions regarding the completion of the Plan of Care, please feel free to contact Student Support Services at 248-684-8236 to assist in the administration of these documents.
