After School Activities

Just a friendly reminder to send a note or an email to school when your child's plans change for after school. Sometimes the kids are not sure or forget where they need to go, and we would like to help them find the right bus, direct them to a safe place to wait, or assist in finding a group of students to walk with to the middle school. Please make sure emails include the homeroom teacher, office personnel, and administration just in case someone is absent on staff. Thank you!

Bus Limits

For most of the buses running after school, they are almost to capacity with regular route students. We can usually accommodate one or two other students that may need to ride on occasion. Larger groups of students need special permission from the transportation director to assure we are not over capacity. If parents are carpooling, please let us know who your child has permission to ride with.

Winter Weather

With the colder weather, it is important to send winter clothing with your child. We usually take our PS-8th grade students out daily. We do have indoor recess when temperatures dip below 0 with windchill. We ask that younger students wear boots, snow pants, winter coats, hats, and gloves/mittens. Our middle school students typically interact on the cement so snow pants and boots are only requested when they are playing a game in the snow. Thank you.

Progress Reports

Report cards will be sent home with each individual student on Monday, Jan 10 in a sealed envelope.

CDC has updated the main public page with their new quarantine and isolation guidance. Please note that they clearly indicate at the bottom of the page that this guidance does apply to K-12 settings.
