  • Here is the latest newsletter with important announcements and dates!
  • February 2016 Newsletter


    Because of the school time we have missed so far due to weather: 

    School WILL be in session on the following dates:

    o   Tuesday, February 16, 2016

    o   Monday, March 14, 2016

    o   Friday, March 25, 2016



    Monday, February 15, for kindergarten registration and parent teacher conference day:  12:30 – 6:30



    According to school board policy, after an accumulation of more than ten days of absence per year, an official verification such as a doctor’s note or a court summons shall be required.  If we do not receive a doctor’s note for absences after the 10th one, the absence will be marked unexcused even with parent verification. 

    Please also note, if we do not receive parent verification of absences, the truancy policy will be followed.  This means you will receive a letter after the 4th day and will have to meet with the principal after the 5th unverified absence.

    It is VITAL that we are informed of ALL absences!  Advance notice is expected for planned absences. Thank you so much for helping us to effectively implement these policies.



    We are so excited about our February 9th PTA meeting.  We will have several stations set up with hands-on STEM related activities for our students.
