Homework Requests

It is recommended that parents request homework when they contact the school nurse to report a child’s absence.  If you plan to pick up homework at the end of the school day, please request it before 9 AM so that the teachers have time to compile the work.  It may not be possible to have the homework ready by the end of the day if the request is made after 9 AM.

Parent Meet and Greet

This night has been designed to allow you to meet your child’s teacher, see the classroom, hear an overview of your child’s day, and learn how to access your child’s device in the event we need to go remote.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences are held in November. Parent Teacher Conferences provide feedback on your child’s educational progress. It is an opportune time to ask any questions regarding your child. First quarter report cards are also handed out at this time.


The object of the monthly school newsletter is to inform you of upcoming events, the breakfast and lunch menus, Monday-Friday Calendar, Extra-Curricular Schedule, important dates, changes in any school routines, and classroom news. It is a great resource to refer to if you should have any questions about a particular month’s events. Information from the newsletter is posted on the district’s website each month.
