Lincoln Crossing Colt Connection

Mrs. Hladun's Tidings

We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Break and were able to celebrate all we do have to be thankful for, even in these challenging times.

I am sure many of you are wondering if there will be extra days added to our school year because of the school cancellation before the holiday. My understanding is that the district will apply for a waiver from the state (similar to what they did after the tanker fire/school closure about 5 years ago). The district expects the waiver will be approved and there will be no additional days added to the school year. Either the district or I will keep you posted as the waiver outcome is confirmed. I do not know how long that process takes.

Also, if you were scheduled to have a conference with your teacher on Thursday or Friday of the week before break, they probably have (or will soon) reach out to you to reschedule your conference in the coming days. Thank you for your patience on that.

Please note that we have our academic award celebrations this week and on 12/3; your teacher will let you know if your child is getting an awards. There is a schedule of the awards below.

Also our winter performances and our winter book fair is coming up the week of 12/10 - check the school calendar for all the dates, times and details!

Construction on Ferrari Ranch & Groveland

Construction sites mean that traffic can get snarled unexpectedly with construction vehicles or lane closures. Please plan accordingly as you plan your route to/from school! If your child walks home, please encourage them to walk on the non-construction side of the street to ensure personal safety!
