Stew-Stras school registration July 22, 23


Student insurance will be available. The insurance will be K&K Insurance Group. Pamphlets will be available on the plan at registration.

Students in grades 5 through 12 who are planning to participate in a sport or an activity are reminded that a completed physical examination form and either an insurance waiver form indicating proof of insurance or school insurance are required to be turned in before beginning practice. These may be turned in to the elementary or high school office or to your coach before your first practice. Physical examination and dental forms, insurance waiver forms, and school insurance forms are available in the offices. Athletic participation fees are as follows: High school $50 per sport; Elementary $25 per sport with a family maximum of $150 (total for all children from one family playing sports) per school year.

Again this year, the district will offer both breakfast and lunch for students and adults. Prices are $1.75 a day for breakfast for all students; $2.40 for lunch for kindergarten through 6th grades; and $2.70 for lunch for grades 7 through 12. Milk and juice prices for kindergarten through grade 12 are $.40. The school cafeteria operates with computer software that debits a student’s account. It is suggested that sufficient money be paid to each student’s account by the week, month, or semester to cover the cost of meals. Students will be issued permanent meal cards that will cost $5.00 to replace.

Admission fees to all sporting events are: $4.00 for adults and $3.00 for senior citizens and students at high school varsity volleyball and basketball events. The admission fees for elementary level athletic events will be $3.00 for adults and $2.00 for senior citizens and students. Again this year the district will be offering an All Sports pass for those who wish to purchase them. The adult all sports pass will be $40.00, the student all sports pass will be $25.00, and the family all sports pass will be $90.00. These all sports passes will be on sale beginning at registration. These passes will be good for all sporting events (elementary and high school) held at the school, excluding tournaments.

Parents are urged to attend registration with their children so that all necessary forms can be signed by a parent or guardian.
