Elementary 18 has a new name – Tambark Creek Elementary! Built with funds from the 2016 capital bond, our 18th elementary school is scheduled to open in time for the start of school in fall 2019. Many thanks to the advisory committee, students and community for all the suggestions!
Absences spike in the weeks before and after the winter holiday as families squeeze in a few more vacation days. Just a few missed days here and there, even excused absences, can add up to too much lost learning time and put your child behind in school. This holiday season, give your children the gift of an education and the habit of attendance.
The weather is getting colder, do you know where to find information regarding school closures? Please watch media reports, our social media pages and our website for information about school schedules. If there is no announcement, schools will operate on a normal schedule. We will give families as much advance notice as possible about school closures or delays. Stay safe and warm!
