Friday Note From Mr. Leeman

Good afternoon and Happy Friday all! Below are some updates on Winter Break and also our ISASP testing and next steps. I hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!

Winter Break Change & Schedule

Friday, December 20th will be an early dismissal at 1:15. This was not originally reflected on the school calendar. Please make note of that also. Winter Break will begin that afternoon and go through Sunday, January 5th. Students will resume classes as normal on Monday, January 6th. All district offices and buildings will be closed unless posted otherwise during this time. If you need anything I would ask that you email me.

ISASP Results

We are planning to send home your child’s ISASP results on Dec. 20th. This will also include information for understanding the test as well as their specific testing results. This will be coming to you via the mail so that we can ensure it makes it’s way home. After you have received these if you have any questions please feel free to contact me as I’ll be happy to answer them for you.

Weather Change!

As the weather continues to get cooler and cooler we would ask that you take note of the weather poster included in this week’s note. We would ask that our students are dressed appropriately so that they can enjoy being outside. If you have clothing needs please contact me or Mrs. Somerville and we are happy to help! When the feel of the temperature is below 10 degrees we do not send students outside.

If you have any questions at all please feel free to call me at 828-4505 or you can email me at .
