Hello, Castle View Families:

A couple of important reminders about next week:

  • Monday, October 31 is a staff professional learning day-- there is no school for students. I hope your family has a safe and happy Halloween!

As always, thank you for sharing your kids with us. It is our honor to serve them.

As a reminder, you can always view your student's grades on Infinite Campus.

If you'd like more information on your student's current learning and assignments, we encourage you to be a parent observer on Canvas, our Learning Management System. Click HERE for step-by-step instructions.
