Grade group teachers meet as a team with teachers of the following grade to plan class lists based on their collective knowledge of the student’s needs. Teacher assignments and class configurations will be announced at a later date. Thanks everyone!
Attendance Reporting (Please report to the OFFICE)
Attendance & Safe Arrival: One measure of keeping students safe is ensuring students have
safely arrived at school. If your child is going to be late or absent for any reason, it is important
that you contact the OFFICE immediately via email or phone (leave a message available
24hours/day) no later than 8:30am and report the reason for the absence/late. **Thank you.
kindly for your cooperation and support.
