Parent/Teacher Conferences

Conferences will be here before you know it!  Conferences will be held on November 19th & 20th.  Sign up sheets will be outside of each classroom door.  Conferences are typically 15 minutes long but can be extended if you have concerns which will take longer than the allotted time.  

One of the biggest indicators of student success is parent/guardian involvement!  Please plan on attending a conference.  If you can't make any of the times listed, contact your child's teacher to set up a different time to meet!
Fall Break

Our Fall Break/Conferences & Thanksgiving is coming up.  There will be no school during the week of November 19th.  Care will be offered on November 20th & 21st.  Only 12 students may enroll so please send in your forms to enroll.  Forms are found outside of the classroom doors and also in the Ext day room.   If there is an overwhelming response, we will open additional spots.
What to do if your child is not scheduled for 10/31

If your child is not normally scheduled for a Wednesday or if your child is an AM only student on 10/31, you may adjust his/her schedule in the following ways:

1. All-day students may switch a day for Wednesday (if space permits)
2. Attend parade and party only -with accompanying adult
3. For those already scheduled on Wednesday AM- attend full day for $15
    (if space permits)
4. Add the full day for $25 (if space permits)

*For all changes, contact teacher first to see if space permits the change.
Halloween Parade and Parties Safety

Our school parade and parties will be held on Oct. 31st.  The parade take place in the gym at 1:45 PM.  Spectators may sit in the bleachers and line the walls as students walk the perimeter of the gym.  The parade will then proceed to the classrooms.  Although it is wonderful to have so many people interested in coming to classroom parties and the parade,due to classroom space and for the safety of all students,  please limit guests to no more than 2 per student.  If you wish to participate in a family event where all are welcome, please come to our Trunk or Treat on 10/13.

All guests who are IN THE CLASSROOM for the party MUST sign a Non-guilty/Non-conviction form found in the office and outside of all classroom.  To avoid chaos on 10/31, please complete this PRIOR to the event.  If you are volunteering in the classroom (running games, setting up, leading crafts in a room separate from a teacher) you MUST complete VIRTUS and have a background check.

ALL who are in the school building MUST sign in.  Please expect lines and a wait to get into the building.  Send costumes with student and have teacher assist instead of coming early to assist your child.
School Cancellations and Delays
1. Look for "Washington Local" delays or closings on the news or via news station alerts.  
2. Sign up for Remind to have alerts sent to you via text or email about delays/closings,  event reminders like picture day, field trips, special activities etc.
                                                 3.. Check FB for updates


* Remind will also be used to notify you if there is an emergency or concern that you need to be made aware of immediately.
