Message From the Principal

Thank you for making Parent Teacher Conference so successful. We had a 97% conference rate. This conference can significantly impact the success of your student (s). When parents, teachers, and students work together for a common goal and then work hard to achieve that goal only great things will occur. When we work together as a team our students will make progress.

Thank you again for all of your support.

Mrs. Lisa Graham

Parent/Student Check Out - School Board Policy JLIB-R

In the event your child must leave school (doctor appt., etc.) during the school day, we require that a parent/legal guardian sign him/her out in order that we may comply with state guidelines regarding our responsibility for student safety. In compliance with District policy, before releasing a student during the school day, the administration/teacher shall be responsible for the verification of the identity of any lawful custodian or any representative seeking release of a student. If a lawful custodian, as indicated on the student's permanent record, is not recognized by site, the administration/teacher shall require a picture ID before such release. If there is a doubt, release may not be granted. If it is necessary for another adult to check out your student, (in a non-emergency situation) you must give permission by sending a note or calling the school office and ensure that person's name is listed on the child's emergency card. Generally, we do not call students to the office until the parent arrives at the school.
