PARENT TEACHER CONFERENCES

Please sign up for conferences if you have not already done so. Teachers emailed a sign up link to schedule conferences. If you have not received a sign up link, please contact your child's teacher.

ITS GETTING COLD........

There are a few students arriving to school before 7:35. Students are not allowed inside the building until 7:35. We must insist that your children not come to school until that time as there is not staff on duty to supervise and students will no be allowed inside the building. Thank you for your cooperation!

Students must also be picked up by 3:00 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. They must be picked up by 1:35 on Wednesday. There is NO supervision for your child after school is dismissed unless enrolled in Boys and Girls Club.

MEDICATION ADMINISTRATION AT SCHOOL:

We frequently have students bringing prescription and non-prescription medication to school without the required information. Medication MUST be sent to school appropriately labeled with dosage information AND a parental consent form. This is not only USD 497 policy BUT also ensures that your child is receiving their medication correctly. We are unable to provide medication without this required documentation. For more information please visit the district website: https://www.usd497.org/Page/6235

URGENT MESSAGE FROM THE OFFICE

The office is receiving a high volume of student messages, forgotten lunches, backpacks, and other items. We will deliver messages to students for EMERGENCIES ONLY. We cannot guarantee that non-emergency messages and other items will be delivered. We do our very best, but can't always make deliveries to classrooms due to unforeseen circumstances. Thank you!
