Conferences

* Parents are asked to call or come by the school office to schedule a conference with a teacher during non-instructional hours. Our teachers need to use the school day to provide instruction and perform school duties and will not be allowed to hold parent conferences during the instructional school day.

Medication Policies

* If your child needs to receive prescribed medication while at school, we ask that you come by the school to fill out a medication permission slip. The school will not dispense medication without the completed medication permission slip. Medication will be dispensed ONLY from the office. If you have any questions please contact the school nurse, Casey Clark.
