Our annual pupil count day took place on Wednesday, October 2nd, an important day for public school districts statewide. The School State Aid Act mandates the funding of schools and the designated dates for the fall and spring counts. Schools receive a blended number based on the fall student membership (90% of state funding) and the prior school year’s spring membership (10% of state funding).
Two other important days coming up soon are October 16th and 17th when parents/guardians can meet with staff for a face-to-face discussion regarding their student’s progress. Please check the building webpage for additional information regarding the specific days and times of building conferences. Interactions with your child’s teacher is not limited to these times and you are always welcome to reach out to the teacher through email or by calling the building office. Please contact your child’s teacher or coach first, especially when attempting to resolve any problems or concerns. The school’s Chain of Command process lists the levels of authority and outlines the steps for any complaint resolution.
Anyone attending the October Parent Teacher conferences is welcome to stop in at the walk-in flu clinic, being held at the high school, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on October 16th (be
sure to bring your insurance card and ID).
