Fall Break

There will be NO SCHOOL on October 17th and 18th for fall break!

Monday, October 21st, is an elementary plan day. There will be NO SCHOOL for elementary students on October 21st.

School will resume for 2nd quarter on October 22nd.

ParentVUE: Entering student absences

A new Report Absence button is now available in ParentVUE.  Parents/Guardians can now submit their student’s absence, up to 30 days in advance, from ParentVUE.

Absences should be entered in ParentVUE if the student will be absent for the entire day or first thing in the morning, arriving later in the day. Student’s picked up early from school should be called into the Zeman school office at 402-436-1169.

Outside Recess

On days when the temperature (including wind chill) is greater than 10 degrees Fahrenheit or warmer, students will go outside for recess whenever weather allows. Students who bring boots to change into will be allowed to go in the snow; everyone else stays on hard surfaces so we don’t track too much muck onto our building’s beautiful floors.

Thank you for helping your student dress for warmth this season.

Dental Screening Oct 28th

We will again be offering Dental Screening through the Lancaster County Health Department on October 28,  2019 at 8:30 am.  Dr. Brent Johnson has graciously offered his services for this date.

Nebraska Law requires all students have a dental screen annually (kindergarten within the last 6 months).  If your student has seen the dentist, please call the Health Office with the specific date in this past year.  If they have not seen the dentist, your student will be scheduled on October 28th at Zeman Elementary School.

Dentist notes can be also be faxed to 402-458-3108.

Thank you for keeping your students healthy!

New Box Tops For Education App

The Box Tops for Education program is changing the way we can earn cash for our school! Over the summer, participating brands have begun to change their packaging from the traditional Box Tops clip to the new Box Tops label.

Going forward, instead of clipping from packages and checking expiration dates, all Box Tops will be earned digitally by scanning your receipt. The Box Tops for Education team has worked hard to build a NEW-and-improved, user-friendly Box Tops mobile app, available now.

The new app features state-of-the-art technology that allows you to scan your store receipt, find participating products and instantly add Box Tops to our school’s earnings online.

If you still have traditional Box Tops clips at home, make sure to send them to school. We will still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops until they expire. Better yet, you can “double dip” during the packaging transition by clipping traditional Box Tops AND scanning your store receipt containing
participating products.

Here’s how it works

  1. Buy box tops products – You can find Box Tops on hundred of products throughout the store.
  2. Scan your Receipt – Use the app to snap a photo of your receipt within 14 days of purchase.
  3. Earn cash for our school – Box Tops earnings are identified and automatically updated at BTFE.com
