Students can use all district online programs over break: i-Ready Math, Smarty Ants Reading (PreK-2nd grade), and Achieve3000 Reading (2nd-6th grade). Click here for the student sign-in page. If you need your child’s log-on information, ask your teacher.

September is Attendance Awareness Month!

Students need to be at school every day and on time. Please make sure your child is here by 7:55 a.m. and lined up on the blacktop (1st-6th grade) or by the classroom (TK-kinder). Let’s improve our attendance! If your child must be out sick, please contact the office at 619-420-3940 or to excuse the absence. Remember to bring a doctor’s note. Vacations, dentist, and doctor visits should be scheduled during our breaks whenever possible. If your child misses school, they are missing out on important learning! Our school staff will be meeting with parents/guardians, calling home, and doing home visits for students who are chronically absent.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent-Teacher Conferences started last week. Please mark your calendars and plan for our modified schedule. Conferences began Thursday, September 15, and end Thursday, September 22.  Remember, during the conference period,  TK through 6th-grade students are dismissed at 1:00 p.m.  Conference information was sent home by your child’s teacher. They will be either virtual or in-person. Please know that our teachers will make every effort to meet with any legal guardian or parent that has educational rights for a child and that you may also request a follow-up meeting if you have further questions or concerns. Please contact the school office at (619) 420-3940 with questions or reach out to your child’s teacher directly.
