As a reminder, due to the additional days off from our winter weather, the district has pushed back the end of the trimester and sending report cards home by 1 week. Report cards will now be emailed to you on Friday, March 15th. This DOES NOT impact scheduled conferences or spring break, just when you get the progress report. :) Please let me know if you have any questions.
