P3 Tips and Reporting

October No-school Days

October 13th – no school for students

October 25th – no school for students or teachers



Our transportation department has been hard at work preparing for a new technology to track and monitor students while on our buses.

After consulting with our team that has been organizing bus riders, we have come up with the following steps to try as our first support. We know this is a new routine and ask your patience and intentionality as we move forward.

Starting 10/19/21:

  1. Riders will be asked to have their card and scan it every time they plan to ride the bus.
  2. Students who misplace their card will need to notify transportation. (There will be a $20.00 lost card fee.  Payment will have to be received by transportation or the school before a new card is issued.)

Let’s all help keep cards safe and ready!

Side by Side Tutoring

Parents, you shared you need a time in the evening to be able to reach out to teachers in order to assist you and your child with remote learning. We listened! 

Every Monday through Thursday from 6:30 – 7:30 pm, you can reach out to a teacher and sit “side by side” with your child to learn and experience success with them! 

Contact your child’s teachers or SeeSaw account for Zoom links.
