Volunteering at SMS

Click here to volunteerShasta Middle School appreciates supportive parents and a community willing to be involved in our school.  To become a volunteer at Shasta please fill out the School Involvement Information Sheet (SIIS) telling us how you would like to get involved.  If your student is an incoming 6th grader,  are new to the District, or have never filled out a background check, you will need to fill out the online Criminal History Verification of Volunteers with Bethel School District before you are able to volunteer at Shasta.

The background checks do not transfer from school to school. Even though one may have been completed for another school within Bethel, you will still need to fill one out for Shasta.  If you filled out the SIIS at registration, but have not yet done the online background check, please do so as soon as possible.

We so appreciate you taking time out of your busy life, to support our students, staff, and school.



Cough Medicine Reminder

CoughParents, please be aware that our school medication policy includes such things as cough drops and cough/cold medicines.  Over the counter (OTC) medications also require a completed medication form and a parent signature with specific dispensing instructions.  OTC medication must follow the manufacturer instructions and be in manufacturer packaging.

So, if your child needs a cough drop or cough medicine at school the parent/guardian needs to bring in the OTC medication in the original packaging along with filling out the Medication Authorization form.  The student should not bring in a handful of cough drops to give to the health room assistant or keep in their backpack/pocket.

Keeping Students Safe

AllergicDo you know what anaphylaxis is?

It is a sudden, severe, potentially fatal systemic allergic reaction that can involve various areas of the body such as the skin, respiratory tract, gastrointestinal tract and cardiovascular system.  Symptoms can occur within minutes to two hours after contact.

For example:  a student with a severe allergy to peanuts could have an anaphylactic reaction to nut oil on the playground equipment, a table or a faucet.

What are the most common food allergens?

Peanuts, tree nuts (walnuts, cashews, etc.), eggs, milk, fish, shellfish, soy, wheat

What can we do to help keep students safe?

  • Refrain from sending products containing highly allergic foods to school.
  • Encourage your student to properly wash hands and face after eating any of these products at home.
  • Encourage your student to not trade food or utensils at school.

If you would like more information you can visit the web site, pick up a Life Threatening Allergies brochure in the school office, or contact the school nurse.
