Parent Conferences

Conferences are an integral part of the reporting system and by far the best means of communication between teacher and parent. They provide invaluable information and procedures in working for the common welfare of the child. If you have any questions or doubts concerning your child, please contact the teacher, who may also request a conference on matters concerning your child.

Should you wish to schedule a conference, please send a note directly to the teacher so a mutually convenient time that allows adequate preparation for the conference can be arranged.

Teachers are NOT allowed to meet while students are in their classes, so conferences should be arranged during non-class hours. Conferences may be arranged by appointment throughout the school year.

At the end of the 1st Quarter, Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled for all students in Grades K-6. The first of four report cards will be discussed at this conference.




Progress Reports

Reports to parents are prepared four times a year at the end of every quarter. These reports are intended to keep parents informed about their child’s progress in school. Additional information on progress reports and conferences are provided through the Parent Bulletin.



Student Accident Insurance

The Board of Education has authorized that private insurance companies may provide Student Accident Insurance. The Student Accident Insurance Plan will be made available to students through the Guarantee Trust Life Insurance Company. The Department of Education requires that all students going on school-sponsored field trips be covered with medical insurance. NOTE: Kaiser, HMSA, Travelers, Military, DSSH Welfare Plans, etc...may cover your children. Please check your coverage under any of these medical Plans.

If a student has no medical coverage, parents are urged to consider at least Plan "B" which is at-school protection for the entire year, and on field trips, for $17.00/school year. As an alternative, if a student is not covered under any insurance plan, parents my purchase Tripster Insurance Plan at $4.00 per student field trip. Please read the application form carefully. Applications were given to each child on the first day of school. Insurance may be purchased at any time. However, by submitting an application form prior to September 30th, students will be covered from the first day of school.
