Special Back to School Night edition

Join us for Back to School Night!

Good afternoon Cliffwood families!


Parents, please try to attend our Back to School Night here at Cliffwood School. The date is next Monday, September 17 @ 7:00 p.m. There is no general assembly so parents should go directly to their child's classroom upon arriving. This is a great chance to meet your child's teacher, ask questions, and learn about their class. We have 2 sessions (schedule is below) so you may visit multiple homerooms or a homeroom and Specials teacher(s). Remember, strengthening the home/school connection is key to your child's success in school, so please try your best to attend next Monday. Thanks and hope to see you then. Sincerely,


Mark Van Horn, Principal

Parking for the evening

Our parking lot will be crowded on Back to School Night so please plan ahead and observe all parking rules. Please note that on-campus parking will be allowed in the parking lot only and not on the blacktop near the side or behind the school. These recently-paved areas are off limits for parking and will be marked with cones. In past years, cars parked on the basketball courts and certain vehicles could not turn around or exit, which caused an unsafe situation. Please use the extra parking space located across the street at Guisti Field once the main lot is filled (see picture below). Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
