Remote Learning Parents

Remote families, you will be receiving a separate email with details and instructions on how to sign up for Parent-Teacher Conferences.


Special education staff will attend your child’s scheduled conference with his/her homeroom teacher.

If you would like to meet with one or more of your child’s specials teachers, please email them directly to set up a conference time. Many of our specials teachers teach in multiple buildings and this will ensure that you are able to find a time that works for all involved.

Coat, Hat, Gloves, Oh My!

Hello Anderson Families,

The weather is changing quickly and I want to remind you that we will be going outside as much as possible this year for PE. I need you to send your student with a coat, hat and gloves. Being outside gives us an opportunity to take our masks off and the ability to learn, move and play in a more meaningful way. Thank you


A few reminders from the health office. If you have one child who has any symptoms that could be related to COVID (fever of 100.4 or higher, headache, shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, congestion, runny nose, new loss of sense of taste or smell, nausea, fatigue, muscle or body aches) keep all of the rest of the siblings home, even if they are well until a clearance note is provided to return to school (see chart). If you pick up one child up from school with any symptoms related to COVID, you must pick up their siblings also. If you work in the district and you or your child goes home sick with these symptoms, all family members in D303 must go home. Your school nurses can help you in determining your options for the symptomatic child and the siblings to return to school. Please certify your child every morning.
