Dear Parents and Guardians,

Just a reminder that there is no school Monday, Oct. 31 and Tuesday, Nov. 1 due to professional development activities on Monday and conferences on Tuesday.  Quarter 1 ended last Friday the first quarter grade reports will be sent out by the end of this week.  If you do not have a conference schedule but would like to speak with a teacher or teachers at this time, please send an email to them.  Teachers will be contacting parents in some fashion around scheduled conferences.  Thanks again for your support of your children and for your communication.
