Weekly Newsletter - 11/19/18
Hello RHE families!
Parent/teacher conferences are next Monday through Wednesday. It is a wonderful opportunity to hear about how your child is meeting expectations and in what areas improvement is needed. Below is a link to a Conference Guide with some tips to assist you before, during, and after conferences. I hope you find it useful.
On a related note, I have included the school schedule during conferences.

Parent/Teacher Conferences and Report Cards
Parent-Teacher conferences will take place this month (November 19th-21st) for all grades.
Please note the change in schedule during the week of November 19th:
- Students will have an early dismissal on Monday, November 19th (PM Kindergarten attends)
- Tuesday, November 20th (AM Kindergarten attends)
- Schools are closed for students on Wednesday, November 21st through Friday, November 23rd.
- School will resume on Monday, November 26th.
Due to circumstances beyond our control, report cards will not be available for printing in the HAC system in time for parent conferences. As such, you will not have a hard copy of your child’s report card prior to conferences. This will only impact grades 3-6 because grades K-2 do not receive a report card for the first marking period. If there are any questions about report cards after they become available in HAC on November 26th at 4:00 p.m., you can always contact the teacher for a follow-up discussion.
Emergency or Early Dismissals Plans
I'd also like to pass along some optimal strategies to families when communicating a change in dismissal plans when there is an emergency dismissal:
- If the plan is created before your child goes to school, review the information so that he/she is aware of the change.
- If a plan is made last-minute, please call the school office. This will ensure that the information will be received before dismissal.
- If you are only able to use email to communicate a change in dismissal plan, please email the teacher and me and preferably several hours before dismissal.
The safety of the children is the most significant objective during the dismissals on bad-weather days. A key component to maintaining their safety is when dismissal changes are communicated clearly to the school staff. Thank you.
The winner of the October Box Tops Contest is ... Mrs. Weed's First Grade Class! They collected 337 Box Tops last month, beating out Mrs. Higgins' class by 74 Box Tops.
