Bug Prevention & Weed Control

Facility Management will see to the following bug prevention and weed control pesticides:

  1. All parents and staff will be notified of a pesticide application at least three business days prior to any applications, except for exempt applications. Parents will be notified each time a non-exempt pesticide is applied.
  2. Parents must notify the school immediately if their child is susceptible to allergies or discomfort when these types of products are used.

Hearing & Vision Information

Vision and Hearing screenings will be administered at Par Excellence STEM Academy at the start of each school year. The reason we conduct screenings is to identify possible vision or hearing problems. All students in grades kindergarten, first, third, fifth, and all students new to the district will be screened. In addition, any student who demonstrates a concern will be screened.

If your child passes the vision or hearing screening, you will not be contacted by our Health Aide. However, if there is a concern, you will receive a letter and a referral to have your child evaluated by a doctor. Please keep in mind these screenings are only a snapshot of how your child performs on the day the test was administered and is not a substitute for a comprehensive eye or ear exam by an audiologist or ophthalmologist.

  • Enrolling in school immediately, even if lacking documents required for enrollment
  • Enrolling and attending classes while the school gathers documents
  • Enrolling in the local school or continue attending their school of origin (the school they attended when permanently housed or the school or the school in which they were last enrolled), if that is your preference and is feasible
  • Receiving transportation to and from the school of origin, if you request this
  • Receiving educational services comparable to those provided to other students, according to your children’s needs.
