Parent/Teacher Conference Scheduling:

We will be conducting Parent/Teacher Conferences the week of November 16th to November 20th. Your child's teacher will provide directions on how to schedule a conference and how/when to attend. Please note that conference scheduling will take place this week from November 2nd through November 6th. You can find the scheduling link on our Ruhkala Website starting on November 2nd.

RVC families will be contacted by their classroom teachers on how to sign-up for conferences. If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's RVC teacher.

Minimum Day Schedule:

The following is in regards to MINIMUM DAYS ONLY.

On November 9th, as well as November 16th to November 20th, we will follow a Minimum Day Schedule. Please reference this MINIMUM DAY SCHEDULE document to see when your child should arrive and and will be dismissed from school.

Important to Note: In order to continue to have a smooth drop off for our Ruhkala students we have made slight changes to our arrival and dismissal times. This is for MINIMUM DAYS ONLY.

The most significant change is that we will be pushing back our arrival time by ten minutes in Grades 2nd through 6th on MINIMUM DAYS ONLY. Students will be allowed to enter classrooms at 7:50 and school will start at 8:00. We have also made changes to our Kinder and First grade AM/PM schedule. Dismissal will be earlier for all students.

Depending on the grade level your child is in times will vary. All specifics to your child can be found on THIS DOCUMENT. Please make sure that all students arrive and are picked up at the appropriate times.

Picture Retake Days:

Picture retake days are November 5th and November 6th. Please reach out to your child's teacher or the front office if you have any questions.
