Happy ThanksgivingAll our schools will be closed Nov. 20-24 for the Thanksgiving Break. The district office will be open on Monday, Nov. 20 and Tuesday, Nov 21, but will be closed the rest of the week. Transcript requests received during that time will be processed when the office re-opens at 7:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 27. We wish our students, parents, patrons and staff a wonderful Thanksgiving. 

 

Community Outreach

Thank you to all the parents and patrons who turned out in support of the bond, which would have paid to redesign SHS and rebuild IFHS. Unfortunately, we did not get the super majority needed to pass the measure. While the election results are disappointing, we will continue working on ways to update and modernize our high schools so they support 21st century learning.  Learn more about the bond proposal

In the coming weeks and months, we will reach out to parents, patrons and staff, gather input and determine a path forward. Please watch for more information about those efforts, as well as ways you can get involved. Questions? This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

PTC Homework

All elementary schools will have early dismissal on Thursday, Nov. 30, and schools will be closed on Friday, Dec. 1, for parent-teacher conferences. There will be no school for kindergarteners or pre-schoolers on Thursday, Nov. 30. Conference schedules vary so check with your school. Parent-teacher conferences are a great way to find out what your child is learning in school, and research shows that parent involvement is a key to student success in school.

We want to do all we can to ensure students in kindergarten through 3rd grade are reading at or above grade level by the end of 3rd grade. Students who are not meeting reading benchmarks will receive additional instruction at school, but there are lots of things parents can do to help improve their children's reading skills, too.
