Feb. 5 Newsletter

February 5, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

 The purpose of this letter is to give you some updates and reminders.

1. If you have changed your phone number, please call the main office to give us that information.  We need to have updated information in case there is an emergency. 

2. Remember school starts at 7:40.  Children who are tardy for school lose valuable instructional time and causes undesirable disruption in the classroom.  If your child is a car rider try to get in the line to drop off before 7:20.  The car rider line becomes long between 7:20 and 7:40.  For safety reasons, if your child is tardy, an adult must accompany the child in and sign the child into school.

3. Below are some dates of interest.  Please mark them on your calendar.

Feb. 7 Early Release – Parent Conferences
