In answer to parents’ concerns School Board members have proposed that the district conduct a survey to get input on school start times. The survey response period begins on December 1st; it is available in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole. It is very important that parents complete the survey at the link below to express their thoughts on this important topic. You need to fill out only one survey even if you have children in more than one school. The survey will direct you to questions regarding both schools. The preferred method is to take the survey online; however, paper and pencil versions of the survey will be available at your child’s school as well. As a convenience, if you are unable to complete the survey at home, you may go to the Parent Education Center at each school to complete the survey on a computer or you can complete a paper and pencil version as stated above. School staff will advise you how to complete the paper and pencil version. We would like to get as many parents to participate in the survey as possible, so that we will have the best information to use for planning any changes which may be in order. You will assist us in responding to your needs by completing the survey today. The survey link is below. The deadline for completing the survey is Dec. 22nd. Thank you.
