Parent Conferences

Please mark your calendars for December 2nd and 3rd! Parent Conferences will be held virtually again this year. We will be sending out a link to sign up for parent conferences soon.

Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures

  • Absolutely NO drop offs prior to 8:15 am.
  • For a safer walking and biking route for all of our students, please use Horace St rather than Filbert Lane during drop off and pick up times.
  • Remember that Horace St is a one-way street (westbound only)
  • Please use your car tag at pick up time to expedite the car loading process (if you need a new or replacement tag, please let us know)

Transferring Students

Looking to Move to Virtual Instruction or From Virtual to In-Person?

Any students wishing to transfer from in-person learning to Brattain Online or SPS Online may do so at the trimester. Families need to complete a transfer request:

Doing this earlier than later will increase the chances that your student(s) will get into the program you desire.

The end of the term is November 30. Please submit your transfer request before that date. The next transfer request period is in March.

Students wishing to transfer from Brattain Online or SPS Online to Mt Vernon for in-person learning should also submit a transfer request (see links above) by the end of the term. Students transferring from online can begin in-person learning either on December 6 or Jan 4.
