As we have addressed the recent safety concerns regarding vehicles passing through and making verbal contact with students at play, we want to assure you that we continue to be in communications with and advised by the Eureka Police Department.
In circumstances that pose safety concerns, 911 will be immediately contacted. This will ensure officers are on site and can address the situation. Additional exterior cameras will be added to provide a wider range of viewing on the perimeter of our building. Although property lines run parallel to the highway, efforts in moving student play away from the immediate fence lines will increase barriers from outside contact. The influx of officers patrolling the area is appreciated as we work cooperatively to prevent safety concerns.
Again, we appreciate your partnership, confidence, and positive support as we work through these safety situations. Know we are here for your children and are fully committed to ensuring their safety while at school.
You should receive an electron progress report from your child’s teacher by Monday, October 21. Classroom teachers have completed a progress report for every child indicating progress areas of strengths and/or area of concerns. Specialists have completed progress reports only for areas of concern. If you have questions regarding your child’s progress, please feel free to contact your child’s classroom or specialist teacher.
Due to our early In-take parent/teacher conferences, we have pushed up the timing for our spring conferences. We ask that you mark your calendars now for Semester Parent/Teacher Conferences being held on Wednesday, January 15 and Thursday, January 16. Conference sign-up invitations will be sent to you in December.
We look forward to discussing your child’s progress in person during these scheduled conference times.
