Aloha Families — Thursday & Friday, March 10 & 11th is parent conferences.  There will be no school for students.  The last day for students is Wednesday, March 9th.   Your child’s teacher should have already reached out to you to schedule either Zoom or Face to Face meetings.  (Special Note:  some meetings may be scheduled after school on other days.)  To help you prepare for your child’s meeting, please be aware of the following: 

  • If you have schedule a Face to Face meeting on campus, please make sure you either have a vaccination card or have been Covid tested with 72 hours of your meeting.  Your child’s teacher may ask you for this information
  • If you have a Zoom meeting, please make sure your child’s teacher has sent you a Zoom link.
  • For students in English classes Grades 3-6, your teacher will have the following: 
    • Grade 3:  Interim SBAC Test (Smarter Balanced Assessment System, ie — our State Test) — students were able to take the Interim state test to help them prepare for the real SBAC test in April/May)
    • Grade 4-6
      • Interim SBAC Test (Smarter Balanced Assessment System, ie — our State Test) — students were able to take the Interim state test to help them prepare for the real SBAC test in April/May)
      • SBAC Scores from 2020-2021, from last school year, will be distributed.  (Apologies for the late distribution of these.  The state no longer provided a copy for schools, so we needed to print our parent reports own.)
  • If your child’s teacher has NOT scheduled a parent conference yet, please contact School Administrators Lydia Trinidad or Loretta Sherwood at [email protected], [email protected]
