Conference Week!

Monday, November 16- Friday, November 20 is minimum day schedule.
All students, K-6 will be dismissed at 12:20PM. Please remind your students that teachers are conducting conferences after that time, so we ask that students do not return to campus to play and hang out.  Please stay out of the hallways, away from common areas and refrain from riding bikes and other wheeled vehicles on the sidewalks until after 5PM. We want to provide teachers and families a productive atmosphere to share about children and their progress.
