REPORT CARDS GO HOME TODAY
Report cards for children in grades PK through grade 8 are being emailed home this afternoon.. If you do not receive a report card by tomorrow morning, please call the office. There will be an early dismissal this Friday, March 26th so that teachers may meet with parents who wish to discuss their student’s progress. Students will be dismissed beginning at 12:00 with PK, K,1, and 2. Grades 3 -5 will dismiss at 12:15 pm and grades 6 -8 will dismiss at 12:30 pm. Teachers will be available on their Zoom link from 1:15 – 3:00 pm.
This has been a difficult school year for everyone trying to make sure all the protocols and procedures are in place and being followed. We are doing our very best in trying to make sure our students are safe, healthy, and learning in these trying times. We need your help to keep your children safe and healthy. The staggered dismissal times is so that we can limit the number of students together and to avoid mixing of groups. There are too many students not being picked up on time and it is causing there to be too many together in an area waiting to be picked up. As the COVID infections are beginning to decrease, we can not afford to let our guard down. Please adhere to the dismissal times for your child’s grade. There will be more students on campus when we return from Easter Vacation and it is important that we can still follow all protocols and procedures. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.
