New Student Registration

Enrollment. School System rules and procedures prohibit the enrollment of any child in the Sullivan County Schools unless the student is living with a parent/legal guardian who resides in the area served by the Sullivan County School System. Students are required to attend the school in the school zone in which they reside, except in certain limited circumstances in accordance with Procedure #3010.01. Failure of parents to notify the school’s administration immediately when they move could result in your child not being allowed to attend an out-of-zone school.

1. Proof of residence: The parent/guardian of every student will be required to provide proof of residency, such as, lease, real estate tax receipt, mortgage information, utility receipts, or the like. Residence may also be checked randomly from time to time, and students improperly attending out of zone will be required to return to their proper school.

2. Proof of Custody
a. Custody Issues: Only the residence of the parent with legal custody may be used for registration and attendance purposes. (T.C.A. 49-6-3103) In cases where parents have joint custody, only the address of the parent named as
the primary custodian or designated as having primary responsibility to determine educational issues may be used for registration and attendance purposes.
b. Power of Attorney for Child care (T.C.A. 34-6-302): Parents of a minor child may delegate to any adult person in this state temporary care-giving authority when hardship prevents the parent (s) from caring for the child.

Hardships are identified by law, as follows:

  1. The serious illness or incarceration of a parent or guardian;

  2. The physical or mental condition of the parent or legal guardian is such that care and

    supervision cannot be provided:

iii. The loss or un-inhabitability of the child’s home as the result of a natural disaster.

When one of the above hardships is applicable, the custodial parent (s) and the care giver must make an appointment to meet with the principal of the school in the school zone of the care giver and present the properly completed power of attorney, in order to make arrangement for school attendance. Circumstances not listed above and identified by law as allowable hardships, should be referred to the appropriate court for change of custody.

Order forms and payments must be turned in NO LATER than September 3rd Collection and return of money… The student will collect all monies from customers placing orders or giving donations. Customer checks will be written out to the student/parent. The Parent/Guardian will write: · ONE CHECK for the TOTAL amount of the products sold · ONE CHECK for the TOTAL amount of Donations collected · Checks need to be made to Indian Springs Elementary. · We are sorry for the inconvenience, but the state accounting practices are very rigorous. We must follow these procedures in order to pass our audit. In addition, the bank charges service fees when we deposit a large quantity of checks. · **NO CASH DONATIONS PLEASE!!** · Collection Envelope for Cookie Dough and Tumblers ONLY · If you have multiple children in your family please fill out the form printed on the back of this flyer and return with your order. All prizes this year are listed on the collection envelope Two Different Ways to Qualify for the Mega Party October 2nd (2 Full Hours) 1. Sell ** (12) ** Items (Cookie Dough/Tumblers Combined) 2. Donate $50.00 ***Note for families with multiple participants: · The first child must qualify for the Mega Party by one of the 2 ways previously listed. · Each additional child must turn in $25 in donations or 8 sale items. Donations will be accepted and welcomed as well as sales! · $50 in donations per child will qualify them for The Mega Party. Since the Incentives, other than Mega Party, are furnished by the fundraiser company, the donations cannot be applied to any other prize level other than the Mega Party. · Due to accounting restrictions, individuals cannot combine merchandise sales and donations to qualify for the Mega Party. Thank you again for your participation! If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school. PLEASE NOTE: Included in the tumbler sale is a custom designed Indian Springs tumbler! This is item 125 on the order form. As always we do not encourage students to go door to door without adult supervision .

PTO Membership

We would like to invite each of you to join

Indian Springs Elementary PTO!

Last Spring, we voted to form a PTO at ISE. Although we have always had an amazing PTA there was one drawback. The majority of the membership dues that our parents and teachers were paying each year were going outside of our school to pay National and State PTA dues. With PTO, 100%, YES 100% of your membership dues stay here at Indian Spring Elementary. We will still continue to do the same things we did as a PTA, we will just have more resources in which to accomplish them!

Why should YOU join PTO?

  • Everyone is welcome at any PTO meeting that we have at ISE, but in order to be able to vote, you must be a current 2014/15 PTO member.
  • PTO gives parents and teachers the opportunity to work together to better serve the students.
  • PTO gives you an opportunity to get to know the teachers/staff at your school.
  • PTO helps to support ISE teachers and students in many, many ways.
  • By joining the PTO, you are helping to fund many projects that the PTO does throughout the year. Some examples are Aid to Children, Facilities and Grounds, Field Day, Fall Carnival, Technology Improvements, Homeroom Volunteers, ISE Drumbeat Newsletter, Walk-A-Thon, Teachers Luncheon, etc.
  • PTO is a small investment with a priceless return!

If you were unable to join PTO at Open House, IT"S NOT TOO LATE!! We would like to kick off our first year of PTO with 100% involvement! Will you help us to do that?

This week you will find a membership form in your child's communication folder. If you would like to become a member, please fill this form out and send your $5 membership fee ($20 Business Membership Fee) to school by Wednesday, August 20th.

**If you would like to know more about PTO and how you can help, please contact Jessica Brickey at jbrickey1@btes.tv or 384-5848.
