SCHOOL LUNCH

In partnership with Fresh n’ Local Foods, Ivy provides healthy, well-balanced meals that include tasty foods from all the food groups.

  • Lunches can be purchased for $3.75 a day.
  • Lunches must be pre-ordered and pre-paid on a month-by-month basis.
  • If your family qualifies for free or reduced lunch please complete the Free-Reduced Price Lunch Application and return in a sealed envelope for your privacy atPrescott: to the locked box outside the office and at Morris: to the business office
  • Children sometimes forget their lunch or have not pre-ordered lunch. Due to the nature of our ordering system, we are typically unable to provide lunches to those who have not ordered them before the deadline the previous month. Parents will be notified if a student is without a lunch from home or a pre-ordered school lunch.

To order your student lunch please fill out the form sent home each month or contact anne.oneal@theivyschool.org. If your child has a food allergy please contact Anne O’Neal at anne.oneal@theivyschool.org before ordering school lunch.

SCHOOL FEES 2017-2018

The Ivy School has an annual school fee of $300 due at the beginning of each year. This fee helps to cover the cost of fields trips, going outs and consumable supplies used by all students throughout the year. These supplies include: pencils, colored pencils, copy, construction and lined paper, glue sticks, erasers, cardstock, dry erase markers, scissors, Scotch tape, composition books, note cards, protractors, compasses and Kleenex. This fee is also used to help replace and repair our essential Montessori Materials.

Teachers may post a classroom wish-list for additional items such as pet food and specialty art supplies throughout the school year; parents may choose to contribute to this list. Thank you for your continued support of our teachers, the students and our classrooms!

IVY AFTER SCHOOL

There’s something for everyone in Ivy After School (IAS)- whether your student needs some down time to relax and read,  some active time to move and play, or structured activities and opportunities to continue with research or extend the work of the school day.

Enrollment in Ivy After School is on a space available basis. The first step to enroll is to complete and return the enrollment application [NEED LINK] to afterschool@theivyschool.org, or to the office at either campus.

Ivy After School begins when the school day ends and ends at 6pm.

At the Prescott Campus the school day ends at  2:45 Monday – Thursday and at 12:30 each Friday. At the Morris Campus the school day ends at 3:00 Monday – Thursday and 12:45 each Friday  

We are happy to announce that we are offering Drop-in IAS services this year!  

To request services, you must contact us via e-mail at afterschool@theivyschool.org   and  info@theivyschool.org.

To request an IAS drop-in day with on the day before you need it you must also call the Morris Campus at 503-288-8553. A confirmation call or email will be delivered to confirm that a drop-in day is available.

SUMMER CAMPS

Ivy offers fun and engaging summer camps in June, July, and August. Watch your February classroom newsletter for registration information.

SAFE  SCHOOLS TRAINING

SafeSchools Training is an online compliance management system that allows schools districts across the state of Oregon to easily train staff members on school-related safety issues to demonstrate state and federal compliance with safety mandates. SafeSchools courses have been authored by nationally renowned experts, and has been endorsed by a number of school boards and superintendent associations nationwide.

As an Ivy School parent, you are welcome to register to take suggested training for Child Abuse: Identification & Intervention and Sexual Conduct: Staff-to-Student.

Contact info@theivyschool.org if you are interested in accessing the Safe Schools training.

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

If a student or parent has a complaint regarding an event that takes place at school or during a school sponsored activity, the student or parent should take the following steps:

  • Try to resolve the problem directly with those involved, if appropriate.
  • The student or parent may seek assistance from a teacher or administrator, if direct problem solving is unsuccessful or inappropriate.  The teacher or administrator will assist in resolving the problem to the best of his/her ability.
  • If the matter is still not satisfactorily resolved, the grievance may be taken to any board member, in writing, who will share the grievance with the whole board.  The board will review the grievance and advise the student or parent of the steps to be taken based on the nature of the grievance.

The Ivy School welcomes productive problem solving and opportunities to improve our program; personal attacks on staff members or other students/families will not be tolerated.  When addressing a problem experienced at the Ivy School, please be courteous and respectful.  Good problem solving occurs when all parties are focused on the issue rather than on personalities.
