Touch Base for Parents and Teachers - Postponed
Change - Please View!
 
Parents,

Due to the amount of instructional time lost during the recent snow storm, the Touch Base scheduled for Monday, February 8th has been postponed. This fulfills teacher requests to recapture some of the weather-related losses by devoting time that would have been spent on Touch Base to working with their students. 
We are exploring the possibility of rescheduling Touch Base near the end of February. However, this will depend on the weather; any further loss of instructional time may necessitate cancelling Touch Base altogether.  
As always, please continue to monitor your child’s progress on Parent Portal.  If you have any concerns, please reach out to their teacher or school counselor.
Thank you for your continued support.  Do not hesitate to contact me if you need assistance.

Sincerely,
 
Michael A. Wright
