Please arrange pick up. If your child is in HEARTS, HEARTS will be in session for the normal hours on the 28th (11:40 am - 6:00 pm). If you have any questions please be sure to touch base with Mr. Carlson.
We are gearing up for parent/teacher conference which will be help November 3rd and 4th. Both days will be non-student days. Your child's teacher will be sending out information to schedule a conference. You will have the option to hold your conference viturally or in-person.
