Change of Transportation Reminder

Please email changes to your child's transportation mode to by 1:30pm the day of the change. This will ensure that your child receives a transportation change note in their classroom from the office. For student safety, dismissal is coordinated by the office.

Unfortunately, voicemails with the office or the teacher may not be received in time to ensure that your child is dismissed correctly. We appreciate your help!

Moving Between Remote and In-Person Learning

If your family is interested in changing your student from in-person learning to remote learning, please call the office. We are glad to help. Students engaging in remote learning are expected to maintain attendance standards and passing grades.

If you are learning remotely and would like your child to move back to in-person learning, please call the office one week before you would like your child to return to school. This allows teachers time to adjust furniture and set up dividers if needed.
