Parent-Teacher Conferences will be conducted over Zoom on the evening of Nov. 19th and between 8:00 AM- 8:00 PM on Nov. 23rd. Special Education and Support Staff will join classroom conferences as appropriate. If a parent is requesting to conference with a Specials Teacher (Art/Music/PE), please contact the staff member directly via email to make arrangements.
There was an issue with the way report cards were displaying in ParentVue (grades were only visible when scrolling to the far right). The district will notify us when this issue has been corrected in the system. Thank you for your patience.
Material Pick-up Begins TODAY!
This week we begin “self-pick-up” of student materials.
Parents or their designee are asked to come to school at any of the following times to pick up learning materials.
Monday, Nov. 16th Noon - 5:00 PM
Tuesday, Nov. 17th 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Wednesday, Nov. 18th 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Thursday, Nov. 19th Noon - 5:00 PM
There will be one bag per student to collect. The bags will be organized by grade, then by teacher, in bins in the parking lot loop drive.
Enter the carline on Tall Grass Drive heading North toward Grassmere. Turn right only on Grassmere, moving toward the parking lot. Pick-up will take place in the parking lot loop (not the loop in front of the school).
Tables/Bins will be placed starting with Kindergarten at the beginning of the loop. Numbered cones will mark grades 1-5. 5th Grade will be the last set of tables, closest to the stop sign.
Please pull-up to the appropriate table(s) in the drive to locate your child’s bag. If someone is already out of their vehicle at the table, please wait in your vehicle until they are done (one parent per table at a time). Bags will be marked with students’ names. Please double check that you are taking the correct bag! Please observe social distancing and wear a mask during pick-up.
Some teachers/grades may ask families to bring items to turn-in. If requested, bins for the return of items will be clearly marked under the tables.
In the event of rain, we will send an email to let families know that pick-up has been temporarily halted.
Families will be asked to return their child’s drawstring bag at a future date.
Thanksgiving Food Drive
Even though students are not physically in the school building, we would like to continue our annual tradition of helping some District 204 families in need.
We will be collecting the items below from November 16th-19th. All donations will go to local 204 students/families.
