As previously indicated, elementary work distributed during the closure is optional and will not be assessed. Therefore, a 4th quarter grade card will not be distributed for grades kindergarten through 5th grade.



Yearbooks

Yearbooks are currently being printed and have not been delivered to our schools at this time. As soon as they are delivered we will let families know. Families will be able to make an appointment to pick up yearbooks or they can wait until Open House at the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.

We look forward to offering online registration to our preschool families!

Important Dates

May 21 - Last Day of School

Transportation

Drop off is 8:10-8:30 everyday. Students eating breakfast will go straight to the cafeteria to ensure they are back in their classroom by 8:30. Students who are not eating breakfast at school will come straight to our classroom.


School dismisses daily at 3:30 with the exception of Fridays. Fridays we dismiss at 2:30. If your child will be going home a way other than their normal routine please send a note or call the office first thing. This ensures that I can get your child home safely! While I do try to check my voicemail and email throughout the day this isn't the best way to reach me for transportation changes. If you email or call too late in the day I may not see it until it's too late. The safest bet is for a note to be sent in the morning or for you to call our office (732-3610).

Birthday Treats

Please let me know ahead of time if you are sending in treats. This will help alleviate multiple treats on one day (and hopefully tummy aches). Thanks in advance!
