Dear Parents and  Guardians:

I would first like to thank all of you for helping our school and our staff navigate through this unprecedented time.  Our remote learning initiative would not have been possible without your help and support.  Thank you!

Furthermore, please take note of the following information as we begin to close out our current school year:

Remote Learning:
Our last day for remote learning instruction is June 12.

Report Cards:
Elementary and Intermediate grading system for the 4th marking period:

  • “P” (Pass): This grade will be assigned to elementary and intermediate students who successfully and satisfactorily participated in our google classrooms.  
  • NE” (Not Evaluated): We also know that many of our students and families continue to deal with an array of extenuating circumstances that impede their ability to fully engage in our remote learning initiative.  As such, the “NE” notation will be assigned to students with limited participation and work completion.  Please continue to call our office if you need any help or support.
  • The publishing date for report cards is June 15.  As a reminder, you can access your child’s report card through the online “Parent Portal.”

Placements / Parental Input Form:
If you would like to participate in our placement process for the 2020-2021 school year, please take a moment to fill out our online parental input form.  To access the form, go to the Intermediate School webpage and click on the “forms” tab located on the left-hand side of the page.    All forms are due by June 12.

5th Grade Moving Up Day Presentation:
Our Moving Up Day presentation for 5th grade students will be published on the district’s Facebook page and website on June 22.
