Back to School - Holden R
Welcome Back to School
The Holden R-III School District welcomes students back to classes for the 2014-2015 school year on
Wednesday, August 13, 2014. A full day of classes will be held on opening day, school buses will run full
routes and a school breakfast and lunch will be served. High school and middle school students are asked to
report to their first hour classes. Elementary children will be
directed to their home classrooms by teachers and volunteers.
We hope the information on this page will help children and
their parents prepare for the upcoming school year. We take this
opportunity to greet new students to the district and welcome
our other pupils back for another school year.

IMMUNIZATION LAWS Missouri State Immunization Law For Schools
is MANDATORY. No student will be admitted to class until compliance
with the Immunization Law has been met.
Missouri Immunization Law requires that all school children must be
adequately immunized in order to enroll in or attend school. To remain in
school, students "in progress" (Imm.P.14) must receive immunizations as
soon as they become due.
Any questions concerning your child’s health or immunization records,
please call the health services coordinator at 850-4444, Ext. 2011.

BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT - Monday, August 11, 4:30 - 6:30 p.m.
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The Holden Elementary School staff members
are anxious to begin the new school year and to
meet the students. There are a number of items
which parents and students will want to note:
* Classes begin at 8:10 a.m. and dismiss at 3:25 p.m.
Children not riding a bus should not arrive before 7:45 a.m.
* To ensure student safety, parents should load and unload their
elementary children in the circle drive. Parents are welcome to
utilize the northwest parking lot if you plan to enter the building.
* On the first day of school, elementary staff will assist students in
finding their classrooms and in boarding the correct buses to go
home.
* Parents are expected to send a note to the office any time their
child is using his/her secondary form of transportation instead of
his/her primary form of transportation.
* Parents are expected to report to the main office upon entering
the building during the school day. Visitor badges may be
obtained there. For parent convenience, visitor badges and a
sign-in table will be located in the drop-off area located just
inside the north foyer. Parents may sign-in and sign-out at that
entrance each morning.
* Parents wishing to pick up their student(s) from school can meet
their student(s) in the K-2 cafeteria each evening (the cafeteria
is located at the north end of the building). Please enter through
the entrance near the circle drive. Parents may again utilize the
northwest parking lot. Please exit promptly through the same
entrance or cafeteria doors as our Day Plus students will need
the cafeteria for after-school activities each day.
* Parents must sign their children out at the main office before
taking them home early from school. Parents may not take their
children directly from their classrooms.
* School supply lists are in this issue, posted on the school’s
website and posted in local stores.
Students new to the school district may enroll from 12 p.m. until
7 p.m. on July 31st and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on August 1st at the
Holden Elementary School Library. Parents need to bring proof of
residency (utility bill or pay stub), student’s birth certificate, student’s
social security card, student’s immunization record and any
applicable court documents regarding guardianship.
A Back-to-School Night will be held at the Holden Elementary on
Monday, August 11th. Students and parents may visit the elementary
school from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. to meet the teachers and find
students’ classrooms. Class lists will be posted at the main entrance
to the building and outside the classroom doors. Students are
encouraged to bring their school supplies to place in their desks.
Names of kindergarten students who do not have current
immunization records on file in the school nurse's office will not be
placed on a class list. All families are welcome to stop by and enjoy
a complimentary grilled hot dog behind the high school at the outside concession stand from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. that evening.

MIDDLE SCHOOL
The Holden Middle School staff is eager to have students return to
school and begin the 2014-2015 school year. We are excited to
have the privilege to work with your children and to watch them grow
intellectually, physically, and socially.
Classes at Holden Middle School (HMS) will start at 8:00 a.m. and
dismiss at 3:15 p.m. Students who do not ride the bus should arrive
no earlier than 7:35 a.m. All students currently enrolled have been
sent registration materials.
Students new to the school district may enroll from 12:00 p.m. until
7:00 p.m. on July 31st and from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on August 1st
at the Holden Elementary School Library. Middle school students
who are new to the district will be sent information in the mail about a
new student orientation/pizza party that will occur on August 6th from
6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the HMS Library.
Students may pick up schedules and locker assignments on
August 4th and August 5th in the middle school commons, if they
bring all completed registration materials. The middle school will be
open from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on August 4th and 8:00 a.m. to
3:30 p.m. on August 5th.
Sixth grade students have been invited to attend an orientation
day (Bridge Day) on August 6th from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at
HMS. Students received information regarding Bridge Day in May. If
your child did not sign up in May, please call the Middle School Office
at (816) 732-4125 and register to attend.
The school supply list for each grade level can be found in this
issue, posted on the school’s website, and displayed in local stores.
Holden Middle School students are invited to attend the Back-toSchool Dance in the HMS Gym on Friday, August 15th from 7:00
p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Students planning to participate in interscholastic athletics and
Marching Band need to pick up physical and insurance forms in the
Middle School Office. Physicals and all other paperwork must be
completed before the first day of practice. Seventh and eighth grade
students may participate in cheerleading, cross country, football, and
volleyball during the fall athletic season. Basketball, cheerleading,
and wrestling will be offered during the winter season. Track is
offered in the spring.
In addition to athletics, middle school students are encouraged to
get involved in an extracurricular activity. Throughout the school
year, students may participate in Art Club, Drama Club, Honor
Society, Math Team, Scholar Bowl, Science Olympiad, Student
Ambassadors, Student Council, and Yearbook. Students may also
choose to enroll and participate in Band or Choir classes.
Middle school students can receive homework help by attending
Homework Club Monday through Thursday each week until 4:30
p.m. Students can receive additional tutoring by making a request
for a tutor through the guidance department. Students participating
in after-school activities may choose to ride the Activity Bus which
departs from the middle school at approximately 4:35 p.m., Monday
through Thursday. The Activity Bus stops are located at the Enon
Baptist Church and the Elm Commuter Parking Lot.
We hope that parents and students are able to attend the Back-toSchool Night on August 11th between 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Students and parents will have an opportunity to meet and visit with
their teachers in their classrooms during that time. We also invite
families to enjoy a complimentary hot dog served behind the High
School building that evening. We look forward to seeing you on
August 11th and to a wonderful year ahead.
Mike Hough,
Middle School Principal
HIGH SCHOOL
It is a great pleasure to welcome you
to the 2014-2015 school year! I hope that the summer months have
provided you with some rest, relaxation, and an opportunity to rejuvenate.
Please join me in welcoming our new staff members! Welcome
Aboard: Angela Brown, Counselor (Even Graduation Years); Michelle
Kearfoot, FACS; Dorell Murray, Science; Katy Stoverink, Freshmen
Math, and Barry Wheeler, Physical Education.
Student Success: While we are filled with pride at the accomplishments of our students, we know they will need our continued help to
succeed. We have provided additional academic support for our students during the school day during SOAR time. During SOAR, students receive additional instruction and individual assistance to
achieve academic success. This additional help is part of our
Response to Intervention (RtI) model. We will offer a robust system
of support in order to meet the educational needs of all students.
After school hours, we will continue to provide support for our students during homework club from 3:20-4:20 p.m.
Student success is the goal of every staff member at Holden. We
believe with our structure and dedication to high quality, researchbased best practices, every student will learn to full potential. We are
prepared to offer time and support as needed.
Attendance: One of the challenges that Holden High School has
faced the last few years has to do with attendance and excessive
tardies. Regular attendance is essential for student learning and
progress. Please coordinate your family vacations when school is not
in session (*see school calendar). Students lose out on critical
instruction when they are absent or are not in school for the entire
day. Therefore, late arrivals and early dismissals are highly discouraged. We request that medical and dental appointments be scheduled after school hours, if at all possible. If students are ill and unable
to attend school, please notify our office the morning of the absence.
Please refer to the student handbook located on the high school web
page for more detailed information.
Academic Achievement: Last year, we implemented a co-teaching
model in three of our classrooms. I am pleased to share that we are
expanding our co-teaching model this year to six classrooms. Coteaching is an instructional framework that is used in a variety of
classrooms at the elementary, middle and secondary level. Co-teaching occurs when two educators jointly deliver instruction in a shared
classroom. This approach provides opportunities for greater levels of
differentiation of instruction within the classroom. The co-teaching
model also allows teachers to maximize the intensity of their instruction and effectively respond to the needs of all learners in a classroom.
Student Involvement: Holden High School provides amazing
opportunities for students to prepare for their future. Experience
shows us that students who are involved in activities beyond the
classroom find greater success academically. As a result of this fact,
Holden High School offers a wide variety of activities, clubs and
sports and encourages every student to become an active member
within our school. View the website at: http://holdenathletics.org/ for
more information about extracurricular activities that are available.
Stay informed with your child’s academic progress and activities
by signing up for Parent Link, One Call Now, and Text Alerts. For
more information on how to sign up for these services, please contact the high school office. Stay up-to-date throughout the school
year by checking out the district website at http://holdenschools.org.
We are committed to working collaboratively with you and with
one another to provide instruction that focuses on the success and
achievement of every student. Serving as principal is as great an
honor as it is a responsibility. I believe that the foundation of our
future accomplishments will be found in the power of our combined
efforts.
Ginger Jones,
High School Principal
It is the mission of Holden High School is to provide the skills, tools, and
knowledge for our students to become productive citizens and life-long
learners.

COMMUNICABLE DISEASES Where there is reasonable cause to
believe that a student enrolled in the District has a communicable
disease, the parent, parents, guardian, or other custodian must respond
to such request and furnish to appropriate school officials a report from a
physician who has examined such students subsequent to the District's
request. If no physician's report is provided, a decision will made on
exclusion from school and/or referral to the Johnson County Health
Department.
Any outbreak of communicable disease will be reported to the local
health authority immediately, including even a single case of
vaccine-preventable disease. Appropriate outbreak control measures
will be implemented in accordance with the State laws and rules
governing disease control (RSMo 167.191, 13 CSR 50-101.010
through 50-101.090 and 50-110.010).
ACUTE INFECTIOUS DISEASE (Measles, Mumps, Chickenpox,
Flu, etc.) Students suffering from or liable to transmit an acute infectious
disease must be excluded from school. Students who are excluded from
school for an acute infectious disease may return, with physician
approval, after the number of days specified in the current "Prevention
and Control of Communicable Disease-A Guide for school
Administrators"-MCH 16. If that period of time has not lapsed or if the
student needs laboratory proof regarding noncommunicable status, a
physician must submit approval in writing before readmission to school.
CHRONIC INFECTIOUS DISEASE (AIDS, Hepatitis, Herpes, etc.)
Because of the risk of transmission of these diseases in the school in the
least restrictive environment, decisions regarding the type of educational
setting for any student with a chronic infectious disease or a student at
risk of having a chronic infectious disease should be based on the
behavior, neurologic development and physical condition of the student
and the expected type of interaction with others in that setting. These
decisions are made using the team approach. In each case, risks and
benefits to both the infected child and to others in the setting should be
weighed.
PROCEDURES To reduce the possibility of transmitting any infection,
the District has routine procedures for handling blood or body fluids
(urine, stool, vomitus).These procedures shall be posted in all buildings.
Persons involved in the care and education of students with these
communicable diseases should respect the student's right to privacy,
including maintaining confidential records. Only those persons who have
a need to know (in order to assure proper care and to detect potential for
disease transmission) should be advised.
All medication MUST be transported to and from school by parents
and/or an adult. NO medication (prescription or OTC) can be
transported on District school buses unless explicitly authorized in
accordance with Board policy JHCD. This policy has been placed in effect
to provide a safer environment for students and to insure that medications
are not received by the wrong individuals. No medication will be stored
in health rooms longer than a five day period. Any medications not picked
up will be destroyed.
All students in grades K-12 must have verification and medical forms
on file with the office. The student’s enrollment will not be complete until
the forms are on file. Students not in compliance by the end of the 5th
school day will be suspended until the forms are completed and on file.
All students requiring stitches, surgery, broken bones, etc. must have
a current physician's release on file prior to returning to school.
School-wide head checks for head lice will be conducted the second
day of school and randomly as needed.
All checks returned NSF will be
RETURNED CHECKS NOTICE
electronically debited for the face value plus a returned processing fee as
allowed by state law.
TEXTBOOKS Free textbooks are supplied grades 1 through 12, but
pupils must supply necessary materials such as pencils, paper, pens,
notebooks, etc. Supply lists for elementary and middle school children
are posted on the school web site, in this issue of the local newspaper, in
local stores, or may be obtained in the school offices.
STUDENT INSURANCE The school district is not responsible for
accidents or injury on school property. The district does make available
a student accident insurance policy for a premium of $36.00, school time
only. If around the clock protection is desired, the premium is $144.00.
Electronic enrollment for student accident insurance is available via
the Markel website at http://markel.sevencorners.com. All athletes
must have insurance coverage to participate in interscholastic athletics.
Parents must sign the “Agreement to Participate” form indicating family
purchased insurance is in effect or a school policy can be bought.

Children from families whose current income is at or below those
shown are eligible for free or reduced price meals. Applications are
available at the school office. To apply, fill out a Free and Reduced
Price School Meals Family Application and return it to the school. The
information provided on the application is confidential and will be used
only for the purpose of determining eligibility. Applications may be
submitted any time during the school year. A complete application is
required as a condition of eligibility. A complete application includes:
(1) household income from all sources or Food Stamp/Temporary
Assistance case number, (2) names of all household members, and
(3) the signature and last four digits of social security number or

signing the application. School officials may verify current income at
any time during the school year.
Foster children may be eligible regardless of the income of the
household with whom they reside.
If a family member becomes unemployed or if family size changes,
the family should contact the school to file a new application. Such
changes may make the children of the family eligible for these benefits.
Under the provisions of the policy, the Executive Secretary will
review the applications and determine eligibility. If a parent is
dissatisfied with the ruling of the determining official, they may wish to
discuss the decision with the hearing official on an informal basis or he
may make a request either orally or in writing to the Superintendent.
Hearing procedures are outlined in the policy. A complete copy of the
policy is on file in each school and in the central office where any
interested party may review it.

HOLDEN R-III SCHOOL DISTRICT PUBLIC NOTICE All public
schools are required to provide a free and appropriate public education to
all students with disabilities, including those attending private/parochial
schools, beginning on the child's third birthday through age twenty-one
(21), regardless of the child's disability. Disabilities include: learning
disabilities, mental retardation, emotional disturbance, speech disorders
(voice, fluency, or articulation), language disorders, visually impaired,
hearing impaired, orthopedic/other health impaired, multi-handicapped,
deaf/blind, autism, traumatic brain injury, and young children with
developmental delays.
All public schools are required to provide parents the right to inspect
and review personally-identifiable information collected and used or
maintained by the District relating to their children. Parents have the right
to request amendment of these records if they feel the information is
inaccurate, misleading, or violates the privacy or other rights of their
children. Parents have the right to file complaints with the U.S.
Department of Education or the State Department of Education
concerning alleged failures by the District to meet the requirements of the
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
The District has developed a Local Compliance Plan for
implementation of Special Education and this Plan is available for public
review during regular school hours on days school is in session in the
Office of the Superintendent of Schools.
Public schools in the State of Missouri are required to conduct an
annual census of all children with disabilities or suspected disabilities
from birth through age twenty-one (21) who reside in the District or whose
parent/legal guardian resides in the District. This Census is compiled as
of May 1 each year. This information is treated as confidential and
submitted to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary
Education. Information to be collected includes: name of each child,
parent/legal guardian's name/address; birth date and age of each child,
and each child's disability or suspected disability. Should the District fail
to submit an annual census, the State Board of Education may withhold
state aid until the census is submitted. If you have a child with a
disability or know of a child with a disability who is not attending the
public school, please contact the Holden R-III Assistant Superintendent,
1612 S. Main, Holden, MO, 64040 or phone (816) 850-4444, ext. 5025.
COMPLAINT RESOLUTION PROCEDURE FOR NCLB The Federal
No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires state departments to
adopt procedures regarding programs authorized under the act,
including Title programs. Part of the compliance directs districts to inform
parents about complaint procedures. The NCLB complaint procedures
may be accessed at: http://www.dese.mo.gov/divimprove/fedprog/
parental_involvement/documents/NCLB_ComplaintProcedure.pdf
HOLDEN R-III SCHOOL PUBLIC NOTICE SURROGATE PARENT
PROGRAM Pursuant to the requirements of state law 162.997-999
RSMo, the State Board of Education is required to appoint a surrogate
parent at such time as it becomes evident that a child with a disability
does not have a parent or a person acting as a parent to participate in
matters dealing with the provision of special education. For purposes of
surrogate parent appointment, "parent" is defined as a biological parent,
a guardian, or a person acting as a parent of a child including, but not
limited to, a grandparent, a stepparent, or a foster parent with whom the
child lives. The term does not include the State if the child is a ward of
the State. The term does not include a person whose parental rights have
been terminated.
The local school district is given the responsibility to determine when a
child with a disability who requires special education and who resides in
the District is without a parent. The District must notify the Missouri
Department of Elementary and Secondary Education of the need to
appoint a surrogate parent. Training for persons serving as surrogate
parents will be provided by the Missouri Department of Elementary and
Secondary Education and the District.
If you are interested in volunteering to serve as a surrogate parent,
more information can be obtained from the District's surrogate parent
contact person - the person responsible for the District's special
education program. If you are interested you can call Assistant
Superintendent at (816) 850-4444, Ext. 5025 for more information.
NON-DISCRIMINATION NOTICE The Holden R-III School District
does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin,
sex, disability, or age in its programs, activities, or employment, and
provides equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth
groups. For further information regarding non-discrimination policies,
contact the Holden R-III School District's Assistant Superintendent, 1612
S. Main, Holden, MO 64040, (816) 850-4444, Ext. 5025. Grievance forms
are available in the district office and on the school’s website at:
http://holdenschools.org/grievance
ENSURING INSTRUCTION BY HIGHLY QUALIFIED TEACHERS
The Holden R-III School District is required to inform parents of the
following information that they have the right to know, according to the
No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (Public Law 107-110).
Upon a parent’s request, the district is required to provide to parents
in a timely manner, the following information:
* Whether the teacher has met state qualification and licensing
criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher
provides instruction.
* Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other
provisional status through which state qualification or licensing
criteria have been waived.
* Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if
so, their qualifications.
* What baccalaureate degree major the teacher has and any other
graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of
discipline of the certification.
In addition to the information that parents may request, districts must
provide to each individual parent:
* Information on the achievement level of the parent’s child in each
of the state academic assessments as required under this part; and
* Timely notice that the parent’s child has been assigned, or has
been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who
is not highly qualified.
ASBESTOS NOTIFICATION
Due to Federal Laws, Holden R-III
School District has contracted services of Terracon Consultants to
perform an asbestos assessment at the various district buildings.
Some areas of asbestos have been identified, but have been
diagnosed as "nonfriable" for the most part and are not presently
considered as a hazard to the buildings' occupants. However, the law
mandates that such materials must be either removed or maintained so
that no future hazard exists. The School District has opted to manage the
majority of asbestos-containing materials in the schools for at least the
next three (3) years and have taken positive measures to ensure its
present sound condition.
All those interested in the specific procedures, location and nature of
the asbestos-containing materials, are invited to view the Management
Plan and Inspection Report. The report may be viewed by contacting the
Superintendent at Central Office.
