Checking in your child's attendance
Now that we are back in the building in a hybrid model for our Pre-K-5th grade students, it is easy to forget to check your child in for attendance on the work from home days.
Make it a daily ritual with your child, of checking in thier attendance on either the parent portal or the student portal to make sure your child is getting credit for completing thier at home assignments.
Wednesday mornings will be a Zoom morning meeting for all students with thier teacher, make sure to review your child's Google Classroom to find the time for thier class.
Let's keep our attendance going strong!!
The Pandemic EBT cards will be continuing for our eligible students!
If you currently have SNAP EBT benefits, benefits from October and November will be added mid February to your SNAP card.
If you do not currently received SNAP EBT benefits, or they have trouble matching your student to your account, you will receive a new P-EBT card in the mail with the child's name on it. Please keep this card as future benefits will be added to it.
