Family Conferences

It's that time of the year! Family Conferences!! You will be able to schedule 15 minute conferences online. Conferences this year will be offered either VIRTUAL, IN PERSON or PHONE CALL. The other exciting aspect is that you can schedule conferences with your child's other teachers... MST, LST, Resource, EL, Art, Music, Library, PE so that you can do this at a time that works for you.

Conference days and times are Thursday, October 13 from 5:00-8:00 and Friday October 14 from 11:30-6:30. Please remember that a teacher is scheduling around 20-26 conferences, so when your time is up, teachers need to move on. If you need more time, please contact the teacher to schedule another time.

The on line portal will opened on Thursday October 29th. You may go in now to schedule. We ask that you not schedule more than 3 conferences for each of your children. If there are other people you would like to talk to, please plan another time to meet with them.

Remember that if you are going to come in person and you have children at different schools, you pad your time to fit in travel to the school.

Assignment Notebooks

Just a friendly reminder that if your child is in grades 3-5, you should pay $7.00 for your child's assignment notebook. We purchase them all and get reimbursed from our families for the cost. If this will be a hardship, please let me know and we can make other arrangements.

For the families that have sent in money...THANK YOU! It is very much appreciated.

Now that everyone will be coming back to school, our traffic issues will return as well. Please see the attached map for where to drop off and where you can park if you want to get out and walk your child to their line.

Here are some reminders for helping us get kids in and out of school safely:

  • PLEASE pull up as far as you can go when you are letting students out of the car.
  • PLEASE do not park across the street and have kids run across to get either to the school or back to your car.
  • PLEASE be patient as kids are getting out of the car.
  • PLEASE do not block the entrance and exit of the school parking lots and
  • PLEASE do not park in the driveway of St. Germaine School. (You may pull into the spots in their parking lot, but do not park in the driveway....except for next week...see above)

Breakfast and Lunch

Our school will be serving nutritious breakfast and lunch every school day. If you qualify, you can receive free or reduced lunches. Please call the office if you need information about how to qualify. The cost of breakfast is $1.50 and the cost of lunch is $3.05.

BREAKFAST will be served in the main hall of our school beginning at 8:10-8:25am. Students will enjoy their breakfast in our multi-purpose room and then will go to their line to start the day.

LUNCH will be ordered with your child's classroom teacher every morning. Students will be able to choose from 2 choices. Students can also bring a home lunch and only order a milk. Milk only is 60 cents and students can choose white or chocolate. You can add money to your child's meal account through Skyward. https://www.d123.org/departments/operations/lunch-menus

DOUBLE LUNCH Many of our older students like to order a double lunch. I ask if they have permission and they say they do... then parents are surprised that the lunch balance goes down so quickly. I have told our 4th and 5th grade students that they need to have permission to do this, so please speak to your children about this.


Grade 5 eats from 11:00-11:25

Grades 3 and 4 eat from 11:25-11:50

Kindergarten eats from 11:55-12:20

Grades 1 and 2 eat from 12:20-12:45
