UIL Athletic Physicals

posted Jul 25, 2018, 8:40 AM by Joel Parker

Dear Parent/Guardian,

UIL athletic physicals are required for any JH/HS student participating in a UIL athletic sport for the 2018-2019 school year.

Physicals are scheduled for Thursday, 8/2/18 at 1:00 @ Dr Burch's office in Elkhart. Two completed forms are required.  UIL Physical Form AND  the “new” Christus Health Consent Form (signed by parent/guardian). Forms can be picked up at the JH or HS front office.

If you are need  transportation the bus will leave the Jr High gym/parking lot at 12:15pm on 8/2/18.  

We are trying to get the bulk of these physicals done on 8/2/18. We have arranged with the doctors office to have enough staff on hand to get the kids through quickly.

Please note we do not know what time we will return to the Jr High but it will be after the last student is finished. We will have the kids contact you when we get close to the end.

Parent/guardian only may pick up your student directly from Dr Burch’s office.

For the JH basketball guys and others who might miss the first date we will go again on Tuesday 8/14/18 at 1:00 (bus will leave JH at 12:15). We are trying to get the bulk of the athletes to get it done on the first date 8/2/18.

Thank you,

Coach Cockerham

Zika Virus Protection and Prevention

posted Jun 18, 2018, 6:39 AM by Joel Parker

Mosquito activity increases with warmer weather, and so does the threat of these illnesses. Pregnant women are particularly at risk of Zika; the virus can cause birth defects in unborn infants. Following this letter are steps to help prevent mosquito-borne illnesses. We ask that you share this information with students, staff and the public.

Additionally, has free information and materials in English and Spanish, including fact sheets and posters, that you can download or order in printed form.  The Zika communications toolkit found there has newsletter copy, social media content, and more. We encourage you to use these materials to help educate your communities.

The website also has website banners and other shareable graphics; please post and share these images on your school websites and social media platforms. The same simple steps outlined there to prevent Zika will be effective against all mosquito-borne diseases.

SLOCUM LADY MUSTANG SOFTBALL - BACK TO BACK STATE CHAMPS!I am so proud of these young ladies and their accomplishments.  I am also proud of the way that they represented Slocum ISD and the Slocum Community this past year in their quest for their second state softball championship.  In addition, I am still in awe of the way that the Slocum Community came out to support the Lady Mustangs at both games and at the amazing tailgate party that was provided for them when they returned home Saturday evening.  It was a great day to be from Slocum, Texas.

It has been brought to our attention that there is a new activity going around social media.  Students are posting highly inappropriate questions and answers about other students.  This is, by definition, cyber-bullying.  Though this activity is currently done on Snapchat, it will not stay isolated there for long.  We also know that this current activity will pass as students lose interest, but a new one will develop just as quickly.

No one has the right to post hurtful, humiliating, or derogatory statements about another person.  New legislation known as “David’s Law” increases the school’s jurisdiction and punishment when dealing with bullying of all types, including cyber-bullying.  

Please check your child’s social media posts and content.  Let’s work together to prevent our students from humiliating and hurting each other.  If you find any negative content, please report it on our school bullying site or by contacting one of our school counselors (Lacie Sloan at elementary/jr high or Kim Tutt at high school.)  We want to stop this behavior, but we also want to ensure that those students involved get the help they need to overcome the effects this may have on them.  

Thank you,

Lacie Sloan
