Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year

In continuing our efforts to reduce paper consumption and to be service oriented and efficient, we are excited to use SchoolMint, an online student enrollment system.  SchoolMint reduces the time parents/guardians spend completing required school forms for one or more children and can be accessed via a computer or smartphone.  For parents/guardians who do not have computer, online, or smartphone access, technology is available in the school offices.  

Because not all back-to-school items can be provided via SchoolMint, some of the information and forms will continue to be provided to students on the first day of school and other information and forms are available on our district website.  For the forms that are available on our website, if you do not have printer access, either drop by your child’s school office to pick up copies or ask that they be sent to you.

 

General Information

 

Required Forms on SchoolMint

Because we just began using SchoolMint, only the families with newly registered students have an account.  Our returning families will need to create one.  The process will be simplified in school years going forward.  The Student Information and Emergency Card and the Parent Acknowledgement and Release are required forms for all students and are located on SchoolMint.

For students who attended RVSD last school year, on August 23, parents/guardians will receive an email and/or a text message which will include a student access code for SchoolMint.  Follow the link included in the communication to setup an account and complete the forms.

For students who did not attend RVSD last school year and have registered for the 2017-18 school year, you already have an account in SchoolMint.  Login and click “Re-Enroll” to complete the forms.

For families that have both students who attended RVSD last year as well as a newly registered student for 2017-18, log in to your SchoolMint account. For the student who was here last school year, click on “Add Returning Student,” enter that student’s access code and complete the forms.  For your student who is newly registered, go back to the dashboard and click on “Re-Enroll” to complete the forms.

 

Hard Copy Information & Forms

The following items will be provided to students on the first day of school, and the forms are to be completed and returned to your child’s teacher by Friday, September 1, 2017.  If you need replacements, you may download them or request a copy from your child’s school.

  1. Parent/Guardian Annual Notice – This information is required to be provided to families annually, and parents/guardians are to verify that they have received and reviewed the information.  The last page of this document does not need to be returned as the verification of receipt/review is included in the SchoolMint Parent/Guardian Acknowledgement and Release Form.
  2. School Lunch Program – The following information and forms are applicable if you wish for your child to receive school lunches and/or to apply for free/reduced meals or free milk.
  3. Technology Use Agreement – This form is required for each student and is to be completed by the student and parent and returned to student’s teacher.

Other Forms

Please review the items below and complete and submit the applicable forms to your child’s school office.

Volunteer Information and Application

All volunteers must submit within 30 days of volunteering a “Volunteer Application” along with written verification from a healthcare provider of negative tuberculosis within the last 4 years (i.e. skin test or Risk Assessment Questionnaire).  If in doubt as to whether your participation in our schools constitutes volunteering, please check with your school’s principal and/or administrative assistant. Note that additional requirements apply to those who will be volunteering as field trip drivers and/or chaperones on overnight field trips.

We encourage all persons to submit the paperwork at the beginning of the school year, even if you are unsure you will volunteer, to ensure there will not be any confusion or delay at the time of the event.

Family members may volunteer at a student’s school.  For anyone other than a student’s family members who wish to volunteer, please contact Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) to become part of the Marin County School Volunteers (MCSV) program (visit this link for more information http://www.mcsv.org/).

 Educational Field Trip Driver

Field Trip Driver form and a copy of the auto insurance policy declaration page for each vehicle to be driven on field trips are also required for anyone driving on a district school event, including if only driving your own child.

We encourage all persons to submit the paperwork at the beginning of the school year, even if you are unsure you will drive on a school-sponsored activity, to ensure there will not be any confusion or delay at the time of the event.

Annual Pesticide Notification

This form is required only if you wish to be notified before a pesticide is applied at your child’s school.

 

Authorization to Administer Medication/Treatment & Authorization to Release Information to Physician

This form is required only if your student needs to have medication administered while at school.


Student Accident & Sickness Insurance Program

This information and application are required only if you wish to apply for insurance.  Note:  The District does not assume responsibility for medical treatment (ambulance transport, surgery, hospitalization, etc.).
