Principal's Message

I want to thank you all for your cooperation and patience as we continue to navigate our way through the COVID-19 pandemic together. Student and staff compliance with our protocols has been excellent and, as a result, we have had very few cases and no cases transmitted on the school campus. As we enter the holiday season we are all very thankful to be continuing in-person instruction and grateful that our students, staff, and community members have, for the most part, remained safe and healthy.

Parent Conferences


As we approach the end of the first trimester our first Parent/Teacher conferences are almost here. Your student's teacher will be available to address any concerns or questions you might have at this point in the year. Please try your best to attend and take this opportunity to come to the school or meet virtually to review your child's progress.

Parent Conferences will commence the week after returning from our Fall Break, November 29 through December 10, for grades 1st-5th. During these two weeks, all classes will be on the minimum day schedule (See Below).

Student Safety 1st During Drop-Off and Pick-Up

Please support our effort in keeping our students safe by respecting our bus zone and rear parking lot.

When picking up and dropping off your students at school, ideally, we would ask that you park on a side street or in the school parking lot and walk your student to a school entrance.

Front Bus Zone: If you must drop off or pick up your student at the front of the school, please DO NOT park in the bus zone. The bus zone is clearly marked with a sign, yellow lines, and cones. Drivers parking in the bus zone will be asked to move.

Rear Parking Lot: If you drop off or pick up students at the side gate of the rear parking lot, please stay to the right, nearest the yellow line at the fence. Staying to the right will allow other vehicles to exit around those vehicles still waiting for their student(s).

Jerry Drive and Lillian Drive Gates: There are two gates at the rear of the Bard playground which are available for student pick-up or drop-off. The gates at the Jerry Drive and Lillian Drive cul de sacs are staffed during pick-up and drop-off times and are significantly less crowded. The Jerry Drive and Lillian Drive gates are excellent pick-up and drop-off area alternatives.

Thank you for your cooperation!
