District News
Updated 2019-20 Calendar
We have added dates for parent-teacher conferences for the 2019-20 school year. Click here to view the updated calendar. We used feedback from the district building leader committee and the parent survey to make some modifications. Conferences by building have been spread out so they do not occur all in the same week, to avoid creating more challenging family calendars. More details about the conferences will be provided next school year.
