Dear Parents and Families,
Village Elementary is “gearing” up to support the Ride for Missing Children (RFMC) on Friday, May 18. This is a very exciting event! Over 200 riders will pedal 100 miles, two-by-two, with police escort from the Monroe County Sheriff and other departments, passing through many communities along the way.
The RFMC is an awareness and fundraising event for the Rochester office of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, NY (NCMEC/NY). Riders commit to meet fundraising goals, to train, and to ride. The goal is to honor and bring awareness to the plight of missing children and to help support the NCMEC/NY prevention education efforts which serves schools, including our own, in the Greater Rochester area.
We are proud to have some of our own brave folks riding on behalf of our school. They are: Mrs. Huppe, Mrs. Menges and Dr. Rudd.
One hundred miles is a long way to go and the riders are going to need encouragement. That’s why we are proud to be selected to cheer on the riders. Students and staff will make their way outside to greet the riders as they arrive to our school. The riders will be onsite for 25 minutes for a lunch stop to hydrate, refuel, and hand out pencils to the students.
For the students, this is a high energy event. They will be led by NCMEC/NY staff and volunteers in cheering on the riders as they arrive and depart. In between there will be music that will reinforce safety messages and a special visit from Clicky, the NetSmartz Internet safety spokes-robot. NetSmartz is a program of NCMEC/NY and teaches kids how to be safer online.
Many thanks to the entire school community for supporting this worthy cause. To learn more about the event visit: www.ride.missingkids.org/Rohester.

The regulations for health examinations have changed effective July 1, 2018 for the 2018-2019 school year and thereafter. State law requires that each child have a health examination when entering the school district for the first time and when entering Pre-K or K, 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, 9th, and 11th grade. A complete dental examination is recommended at the same time. These appraisals may be done up to one year to the month before your child begins these grades. Your family physician/nurse practitioner is most familiar with the medical history of your child; therefore, the district recommends that they complete all examinations. Completed health certificates can be mailed or faxed to the school nurse by you or your health care provider.
- A copy of the health examination must be provided to the school within 30 days from when your child first starts at the school and when your child starts grades K, 1, 3, 5, 7 and 11.
- If your child has an appointment for an exam during this school year that is after the first 30 days of school please notify the health office with the date.
- Communication between private and school health staff is important for safe and effective care at school. Your healthcare provider may not share health information with school health staff without your signed permission. Please talk to your provider about signing their consent form for the school at the time of your child's appointment for the examination.
- We suggest that you make copies of the completed forms for your own records before sending them to the school health office.
A letter will be sent home if there are any findings on the screening done at school that would cause concern or need medical follow-up. Please call the school’s Health Office if you have any questions or concerns.
