Parent Blast - November 2, 2020


We have many updates in this week's Parent Blast. Please take few minutes to read through all of them so you can stay up to date!

Attendance in CDL has meant quite a few shifts from our former practice, however our process for calling the attendance line when your child is sick remains the same. If your child does not or will not attend any synchronous (live) or asynchronous (google classroom) on a school day, please call our attendance line at: 503-844-1385. This ensures your child's attendance is reported accurately.

Next week we will be conducting fall conferences (see schedule below). This is a time to connect with your child's teacher regarding engagement and academic progress so far this school year. This year there are different conference time-frames due to the different class sizes. Our K-2 conferences will be scheduled for 30 minutes and our 3-6 grade classes will be scheduled for 15 minutes. As a reminder, all teachers have daily office hours should you need more time to connect. You will notice that there is a variety of times both during the day and in the evening to accommodate different family schedules. This schedule allows for one conference per student during the schedule below. Please prioritize this time of connection with your child's teacher so we can continue to build a strong network of support for your child.

Please use this link to sign up for a conference with your child/children's teacher.

Math Tournament

This week our sixth grade leaders are continuing the math tournament and students can still enter a response for round 1 through Wednesday. On Thursday they will post the list of students moving on to round 2. All students are welcome to submit responses throughout the tournament and continue to participate while the list narrows to our winners. The video and form are located on our website (embedded in our twitter feed), our Facebook page, our Twitter handle and in some google classrooms.
