    Dear Parent: WELCOME TO ESSEX AGGIE’S HIGH 5! Please read this document carefully. Parts I, II and Ill seek medical and other information about your child. Part IV contains important information about the High 5 experience and may affect your legal rights and those of your child in the event of an injury or some other loss. The document must be signed by at least one Parent.

    Activities and Risks: High 5 programs are designed to be age appropriate and well within the capabilities of children in reasonably good health. They incorporate a variety of activities including games and problem solving initiatives. Each child may choose the level of his or her participation. Minimizing risks is a high priority at High 5, but participants and their families must understand that there are risks of physical or emotional injury, and must assume those risks. While the risk of injury is small, participants may suffer sprains, abrasions and other, more serious, physical and emotional trauma. Injuries and other losses can result from, among other causes, moderate to strenuous activity including the possibility of falling, abrupt contact with fixed and other objects and persons, close personal contact with other participants or staff members, including the possibility of inadvertent and unwelcome touching, and misjudgments of other participants. High 5 recommends that participants be covered by health and accident insurance for the duration of their participation.

    Managing risks effectively is very important in all of our programs at Essex Agricultural & Technical High School. Please help us by providing the information requested below. Let us know if your child has any condition (current or past) that could affect his/her involvement in all activities and provide any other information that will help us provide a productive and enjoyable experience.

    If you have any questions about your child ‘s program, don’t hesitate to call the Essex Agricultural & Technical?High School’s High 5 office at 978-750-9210.

    Imagine you are a young child and you awaken one night to find your bedroom filling with smoke. Your house is on fire! What would you do?

    To make sure your child has the skills that can potentially save his/her life, we will be teaching burn prevention and fire safety in class. A key element of this learning process will include a tour at school of the Fire Safety House.

    This mobile classroom is specially designed to teach children vital burn prevention ad fire escape techniques through a fun, safe simulation of common hazards. The fire Safety House is equipped with a kitchen, bedroom, and living room.

    The House fills with a nontoxic water based smoke. This realistic environment teaches children to ‘crawl low’ to safety. A heated door helps children choose the right exit. An escape ladder is used to exit from the bedroom.

    If your child suffers from asthma, other respiratory conditions or allergies that may be irritated by the nontoxic smoke, please indicate that below before allowing him/her to tour the House.

    Note: All participants should wear pants/shorts and no-heeled shoes the day of the tour.

    Check one Child’s Name?____My child______________________________may tour the Fire Safety House.

    ____My child______________________________may not tour the Fire Safety House.

    ____My child, has asthma, an allergy or respiratory condition that may be irritated by the nontoxic smoke and should not be in the House during that part of the program.

    Rock Wall Release and Assumption of Risk Form (Required for Group Participants)

    Since La Vida’s beginning in 1970, it has had an excellent safety record. All activities are well within safety limits and standard procedures are strictly enforced by trained instructors. The La Vida policy, “Challenge by Choice”, means that each participant determines the level and extent of their participation. The staff will encourage participants to try each activity, but will not use or allow peer pressure to force any participant to do anything they would prefer not to do.

    But we are required by law to inform each participant of the risk and danger involved in adventure activities. Therefore, this “Release and Assumption of Risk” form has been drawn up and must be signed by each participant and the parents of minors.

    I am aware that during La Vida’s Rock Wall certain risks and dangers may occur which are out of the control of the instructors. I further realize that I will be participating in activities in which the risk of an accident may be greater than in my normal way of life.

    Although I know that safety procedures and precautions are in place, I know that I will be climbing vertical walls as high as 28 feet and that falls may occur possibly causing scrapes or other injuries.

    In consideration of the right to participate in such activities, I have and do hereby assume all the above risks, and will hold Gordon College, and the Rock Wall Instructors harmless from all liability, actions, causes of actions, debts, claims, and demands of every kind and nature which might arise in conjunction with my participation in La Vida’s Rock Wall.

    I also acknowledge the fact that the instructors have the right to terminate my participation in the Rock Wall because of my health or physical condition. I agree that the decision of the instructors shall be binding upon me.

    From Mr. Roberts at HHS:
    Hey, eighth graders! Are you thinking about joining a technology-related club at the high school? Ham Radio is a popular hobby and service in which licensed radio operators operate communications equipment. They provide communications at times of emergency and during events like marathons and parades. It’s a great hobby for anyone interested in electronics or talking to other hams around the world.  Students interested in becoming a ham radio operator can take a one-day class in early April to prep for the licensing exam.  Get licensed now and be ready to have some fun in the fall! Contact Mr. Roberts ateroberts@haverhill-ps.org for more information about ham radio or our other STEM-related clubs.

  • Revised School Calendar

  • Weekly Parent Update 2/28/15

    Good Morning,

    I hope this email finds you and your families well on this cold Saturday.  We finally had a full week of school with no snow days!  Let’s hope that Mother Nature will spare us in the coming weeks.

    The kiddos and teachers have been working hard to prepare for the upcoming PARCC tests.  As you know, the students will be taking the computer-based exam.  The testing window is March 16-April 17.  Dr. Thakkar is in the final stages of preparing a schedule as to when each child will be testing.  If you have any questions, please call me or Dr. Thakkar.  

    Below are some important events happening this week:

    • March 3- Spring Pictures.  Notices have gone home with the children.  

    • March 4- Early Release- Dismissal is at 11:05.  

    • Boys volleyball tryouts will be Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 3-4pm.  

    • The district calendar has been recently revised by the School Committee.  Please check out our website (www.haverhilll-ps.org/consentino).  Dr. Thakkar will be posting the revised calendar for March-June today or tomorrow.  

    Below are some important reminders:

    • Students are not allowed in the building before 8:05.

    • When dropping off your child near the gym side, please pull all the way down the driveway.  This will lessen the traffic on Washington St. and make for a smooth procedure.  

    • If you are picking up your child, please be patient.  There is a lot of snow and we want to be sure our children are safe.  We have staff situated in strategic areas to help facilitate this process.  

    • When exiting our lot in the morning and afternoon, you must take a right on Washington St.   

    • K-4 Parents:  Until further notice- When you drop off your child in the morning on the canopy side of the school, have your child enter through the canopy doors of the building.  Dr. Thakkar will be outside to assist in this process.  There is a lot of snow in the back of the school, and we want the little ones to be safe when entering the building.  Our K-4 students will then be directed to the gym by staff members.  

    • We will try to go outside for recess for fresh air if the elements allow us to.  Please make sure your child wears jackets and gloves each day.  

    Thank you again for all your support.  If you have any questions or concerns, please call or email me.  I will get back to you ASAP.  Enjoy the weekend with your families.
