General Information

School Hours
8:55AM - 2:55PM

When a child will be absent, a parent is requested to call the school and give the date(s), and anticipated length of absence. Parents may leave a message on the answering machine after or before school hours. The School Department Policy requires that families send a note explaining the circumstances of the absence to the teacher upon their child's return to school in order for an absence to be considered an excused absence.
Each class will go outside almost every day. Please make sure children are dressed for cold weather when it arrives.

Grades, Reports, Portfolio Conferences
Teachers evaluate students three times annually with lengthy developmental checklists of academic and social goals, which are sent to parents with teacher comments. Students do not receive letter-grades.  Parent-teacher conferences are held three times per year though parents may meet with a teacher at any time or speak with a teacher informally.
