Back to school information:
Early Childhood Screening
State law mandates that all children are required to participate in Early Childhood Screening
for entrance to kindergarten. This screening ensures that all young children in Minnesota
are well equipped and ready for learning and that families can be aware of resources in the
school and the community. The White Bear Lake Area Schools provide screening for children
between the ages of 3 and 5 years of age at no cost (one time only). Screening at age 3 is best.
Children only need to be screened once.
Screening includes: vision and hearing, speech and language development; muscle
coordination, general skills development, health and immunization review, family
information review, and information on community resources. See calendar for
Early Childhood Screening Dates. Register online at www.wblearlychildhoodregistration.org.
For more information, call 651-653-3100 or visit www.isd624.org/EarlyChildhood.

Minnesota Student Immunization Law
Minnesota Statutes Section 121A.15 and Minnesota Rules Chapter 4604 requires that each
student enrolled in and remaining in an elementary or secondary school must submit a
record stating that they have received immunizations consistent with medically accepted
standards. Immunization records from parents or health care provider stating the month,
day, and year of each dose are acceptable. If the student or parent(s) meets one of the legal
exemptions - contraindication for medical reasons or contraindication for conscientiously
held beliefs - the health care provider or notary needs to sign an appropriate exemption.
For students entering Kindergarten - 12th grade, the following immunizations are required:
• 5 DPT, DT, Td (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis)
• 3 Hepatitis B (HBV) - These injections
are given over a 6 month period)
• 4 Polio (OPV or IPV)
• 2 MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella)
• 2 Varicella (Chicken Pox) or physician verification of having had the disease (month/year).
For students entering 7th grade -12th grade, the following additional immunization is required:
• 1 Booster dose of Td (Tetanus, Diphtheria), given at or after 11 years of age.
• 2 MMR (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) - if it was not received before kindergarten.
• 2 Varicella (Chicken Pox) or physician verification of having had the disease (month/year).
• Notice: Beginning in fall 2014-15 students entering 7th grade will be required to have
received meningitis vaccination.
For information about immunizations, please call Special Services at 651-407-7554 or speak
with your school nurse.

School Breakfast/Lunch Program
The school district’s Nutrition Services Program provides nutritious breakfasts and
lunches at each school. Milk is included with meals and may also be purchased separately.
The White Bear Lake Area Schools offer a computerized meal payment system. Money
is deposited into the student’s individual account. During meal time, students will enter
a personal identification number (PIN) on a keypad which will access their account.
Deposits into student accounts can be made each day at school or on the District website.
Students whose families qualify may receive free or reduced-price meals by
completing the application available at their school. Applications can then be submitted
to the Food Service Office at 4855 Bloom Avenue in White Bear Lake and online at
http://mealapp.isd624.org. The District follows strict non-discrimination rules to protect
the anonymity of its students.

School-age Child Care
Extended Day is the district’s school age care program providing before and after school
care and full-day programming on non-school days and in the summer. Elementary-age
youth in the program are actively engaged in a structured environment to expand and
develop their skills during their out of school time hours.
The program is youth-focused and choice based, giving children the opportunity to
develop strong social skills and positive relationships with peers, increase literacy and
math skills, participate in individual and group activities, and work on special projects.
Program activities include health and fitness, service projects, arts and crafts, creative
play, languages and literacy, cooking, science, and much more. In addition to this, off-site
field trips and special events take place throughout the year.
Hours of operation:
Before School ..........................6:30 a.m. - school begins
After School.............................school dismissal - 6 p.m.
Registrations are accepted on an ongoing basis. Fee information and registration
materials are available at all Extended Day sites, on line at www.whitebearextendedday.
org, and in the Community Services Office at District Center. Contact 651-407-7511 with
questions.
Extended Day will be closed the following dates in 2014-15:
Aug. 18-29, Sept. 1, Nov. 27 & 28, Dec. 24-26 & 31, Jan. 1-2 & 19, Feb. 16, Apr. 3, May 25
and June 5.
Transportation
Bus route information will be mailed
to parents approximately one week
before the first day of the school
year. Students should be at the bus
stop five minutes before the bus is
scheduled to arrive. Students only
are allowed to ride the bus to and
from the school and bus stop they are
assigned. Students are not allowed
to ride another bus to events such as
birthday parties, scouting, or other
activities. Bus schedules are somewhat
flexible during the first week of school
while drivers become familiar with the
routes.
In cases of inclement weather,
bus drivers will try to maintain their
schedules. However, if roads are icy
or snow covered, buses may be late
and parents and students should plan
accordingly. Parents should use their
discretion in sending children outside
when the weather is extremely cold.
For more information about
District transportation, please call the
Transportation Office at 651-407-7538.
Emergency Weather Closing
When a decision is made to close
schools, an announcement will be
made over major radio and television
stations as early in the morning as
possible. The announcement will
identify our school district as White
Bear Lake Area Public Schools. Efforts
will also be made to use the parent
notification alert system to notify
families of school closures. If no
announcement is made, schools will
be in session as scheduled. Parents
may also check the District website
or Facebook page, or call the White
Bear Lake Area School Closing Hotline
number at 651-407-7540. Parents may
also check the District website, our
Facebook page, or call the White Bear
