Are you Ready?

As we start the school year please help us provide a successful learning experience for your students. While the students are learning at home, we need all of our parents and caregivers to do a few important things;
1. Be sure to provide a space for your students to work where they will not be distracted or interrupted while they are in class online.
2. Be sure that the scholars are on time each day and prepared for class. Attendance will be taken at 8:30.  Students not online at this time will be marked absent.
3. Be sure that the students complete all homework assignments and independent work that teachers assign.
4. Sign up for and participate in communication on Class DOJO.

Parents, Our School District Digital Team has added a Black Lives Matter page with resources for families to help support your conversations at home.

ACCURATE & UPDATE INFORMATION: Parents should inform the school when there is a change in address or telephone number. The school sends important information by mail. If the school does not have a correct address, this information may not reach a student’s home. It is imperative that we have a correct phone number in case of an emergency. All students must have an emergency contact number on file in the main office.
