Dear Parents,

We have posted class lists in front of the office so your child can see which class they are in for the upcoming school year.

I want to share the process we use to establish class placements.  At the end of the year, we convene as a staff to “throw cards”.   Our entire certificated staff comes together and we strive to create class configurations that are balanced and best suited to meet a child’s academic, social and emotional needs.

The class placements that are posted will remain in place for a minimum of two weeks.  If, after the first week in school, you believe the assigned class isn’t a “good fit” for your child, you will need to schedule a class observation (of a minimum of 20 minutes.)  After that observation, you need to meet with the teacher and communicate your concerns.  If desired by the parent or the teacher, I can attend that meeting as well.

It has come to my attention that some children may not have been on the class lists.  If that is the case, please send an email to our Attendance Clerk, Nicole Stephens and cc me, Deb Ganderton. Nicole will address this when she returns to the office on Monday.
