Livingston News

There’s always something going on at Livingston, and we want to share all the great news with you. We will keep this page updated with important announcements, news stories, and student shout-outs. Please check back often, and help us celebrate our students’ many achievements.

Volunteers Needed

We need volunteers for various upcoming events. We are looking for volunteers to help with the book fair on October 21 through October 24. We also need help with meals for our teachers during parent teacher conferences. Please visit our parent/teacher conferences SignUpGenius to see what’s needed and sign up!

Book Fair Dates and Times

Mark your calendar for our book fair dates and times. Our fair is October 21 through October 24 from 7:45 till 8:10 a.m. before school. After school hours are 3:00 to 4:00 p.m., except for October 22 and October 24. Times those evenings will be 3:00 to 7:00 p.m. during conferences.

Read-a-Thon Results

Our Read-A-Thon was a huge success! We raised $23,774.43! Thank you to all our generous families and donors! You are what makes Livingston a great school!

Notes from the Nurse

Influenza is a contagious respiratory disease that you can prevent by immunization. It is not the same as the stomach flu. The cause of influenza is a virus that attacks the nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness and, at times, can lead to death. The most effective way to protect yourself from influenza is to get vaccinated. Park County Public Health is holding a community flu clinic on Wednesday, October 9 from 8:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. at the Cody auditorium, located at 1240 Beck Avenue. The cost is $25 for adults and $20 for children. They accept Medicaid and Medicare insurance. You can also obtain a vaccine from your family physician and many pharmacies.

Cold Weather Reminder

Just a reminder to send your child prepared for the cold, suddenly-changing weather of Wyoming! Please refer to page 20 of the student handbook, under Recess and Warm Clothing:

 “We believe that children need fresh air and exercise each day, even during the cold winter months. Therefore, children are expected to go outdoors for recess. Students need proper outer clothing, coats, gloves, hats or hoods, and foul weather footwear. When there are extreme temperatures (wind chill or temperature is 5 degrees or below) or adverse weather conditions (rain, extremely wet snow, high winds, etc.) all children are kept inside.”

If you need help with winter clothing, please contact our school counselor, Mr. Grant.

Vision and Hearing Screenings

Vision and hearing screenings will take place throughout the month of October. We will notify you of abnormal results or if we recommend a follow-up. Please contact our school nurse, Susan Lambert, if you have any questions or concerns.

School Store

The school store is open on Thursday afternoons during our last recess. We have pencils, erasers, bookmarks, and other fun items. Most items between $.50 and $2. We have blue and gold Livingston School shirts ranging from $8 to $12. Our student council members work the school store once it is up and running.

Read-a-thon

The Read-a-thon is off to a great start! The kids got fired up last week with a visit from Johnny Reader! He challenged the kids to raise money for their school and to read at least 30 minutes a day! Remember to send your students’ Read-a-thon tallying sheet (yellow) with them each Thursday! Mark your calendars! Our next meeting will be October 8 at 5:30 p.m. in the library. We would love to have you join us! If you have any questions, reach out to us by email or find us on our new Facebook page!

Food Services

Did you know you are welcome to pay for school meals with cash or check to the office, or through the My School Bucks program? You will need your child’s student number for to this. A letter has gone home with those numbers. Please call the office to receive that number as well. If you plan on eating school lunch with your child, you need to call the office by 8:30 a.m. that morning so that we make sure to have enough food. Thank you!
