North Glendale Family Update

January 3, 2021

Happy New Year!

I hope your family had all the time you needed to reconnect, recharge and relax.


As we head back to school, please continue your diligence in monitoring for Covid symptoms and err on the side of caution. Don't forget those before school health checks and mask protocols. We will continue our diligence in school with lots of hand sanitizing, distance and masks!


Welcome to Second Semester and HAPPY 2021!

Parent-Teacher Conferences January 11-15

Our Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held via Zoom the week of January 11-15. Classroom teachers have been reaching out to families to schedule.


I'm also happy to meet with families if needed- please email or call to schedule this. My door is always open (figuratively right now due to Covid) and I am happy to meet with families at any time (it doesn't have to be during this week).
