Conferencing is coming up!

Conferencing scheduling letters will be coming home with students on Friday, Nov. 6th.  Conference days are December 1st from 12:00 – 7:40 and December 2nd from 8:00 – 11:40.  Please ask your student for the letter and fill in your best available times to conference.  Send the form back to school as soon as possible.  We schedule on a first come first serve basis.  Teachers hope to conference with every student’s family by December 2nd. 



We have a mountain of lost and found.  PTO has offered to put everything out on their Family Movie night, Friday, November 13th.

Please stop in between now and the 13th to see if any items belong to your student.  On Monday, November 16th all leftover clothing will be donated to the Brattain house.





We strive to be prepared for any emergency that may occur during the school day.  In a effort to be practiced in our procedures we periodically hold drills such as fire, earthquake and our CODE RED & CODE BLUE drills.

A CODE BLUE would be called in the event of unsafe circumstances at a nearby location.  In a CODE BLUE the building is locked down with all doors locked and windows covered.  Students continue to move about the room as usual with supervised visits only to the restrooms located in their pods.

A CODE RED would be called in the event of unsafe circumstances on the school grounds.  In a CODE RED the building is locked down with all doors locked and windows covered.  Lights are turned off and students are moved away from the doorways or windows and huddled down low until the danger no longer exists.

We all hope that we never have to use these drills in a real life situation.  But should we ever need to, we strive to be prepared to insure that our students are safe and secure.  If you have any questions regarding these drills please feel free to call the school office at 541-744-6418
