Other Bits of Information
Student Notes: We receive various student notes on a daily basis. Please make sure you put your child’s first and last name along with your child’s teacher’s name on the note. This will make it much easier for all of us to know who sent the note.
Bus Stop: Please make sure you are at the bus stop a couple minutes prior to the bus’s arrival. For students in kindergarten and grade 1, students will not be dropped off without an authorized adult there to pick up the child.
Progress Reports: Students in our school do not receive progress reports at this time of year; we have parent teacher conferences at this time of year. Students will receive a progress report in March and at the end of the school year. With that said, we do not send home hard copies of the progress reports; parents access them through Aspen. If you have accessed Aspen in the past and do not know your username or password, you would need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have never accessed Aspen and do not know your username and password, you will need to come in to the school and request this information from Mrs. Fallgren. You will need to sign a form and provide your email address so this information may be sent to you.
