Dear Parents and Community--

I have a few brief mid-week updates:

The district released their proposed make-up dates from the instructional days missed in the strike. These dates are proposed and not official until the Board votes on November 20. The proposed dates are:

Wednesday, November 27, 2019
Thursday, January 2, 2020
Friday, January 3, 2020
Wednesday, June 17, 2020
Thursday, June 18, 2020

Once changes are approved, we will look at how these dates impact our planned Solomon events and communicate any changes to the community. Thanks, once again, for your patience.

The School Improvement Day on Friday, November 8, and Veterans' Day on Monday, November 11, continue as days of no school for students.

Additionally, Report Card Pick-up Day for elementary schools will remain on Wednesday, November 13, another day of no school for students. Teachers will be sending out information to parents regarding available meeting times (between 11-2:30 and 3:15-6) in the coming days. Please respond promptly to those requests since we are working with less planning time than we would prefer.

Last, we need your support for the Scholastic Book Fair coming next week. Book Fair volunteers are needed to staff the fair on November 12, 13, 14, and 15. Please click here to volunteer. A link to the online fair (November 3-16) is here.

In partnership,
