    Kindergarten Parent Breakfast


         Wednesday, March 4  from 9:00 to 10:30.   



CALENDAR PLANNING:    Tuesday, March 10th      5:00pm 

The county is developing the school calendar for next year (2015-2016).  There will be a public hearing on Tuesday, March 10th at 5:00pm at the Board Office.     It is an important opportunity for the community to provide input about holidays, vacation time and the start of school!


PLANNED EARLY DISMISSAL:  Friday, March 20th

Taylor County Schools will dismiss 3 hours early on Friday, March 20th.   Teachers must complete important training for the new state testing that will occur in May.    Parent pick up will be from 12:00 noon to 12:10.   Busses will drop off 3 hours early according to their regular schedule.    Thank you for your patience and understanding.   



Taylor County Kindergarten Registration

Parent with children who will be 5 years old before September 1, 2015 must call and register their child for kindergarten.  


If you know of someone in the area who has young children - or who has recently moved into our area- please let them know they need to call the school.   It's important for us to know as soon as possible the most accurate count for next fall.  

        


  ATTENDANCE 

Each day is important - especially with the threat of the flu season and winter weather.    Good sleep and handwashing are important to staying healthy and in school!   

       If your child has to stay home due to illness, you must send a note.   Parents can only excuse 5 days per semester (Sept-Jan).    Any days after that must have a doctor's note to be excused.  Please call the office if you have any questions.

   


CHECK OUT THE CALENDAR

Please remember that according to state law, every snow day must be made up.   Spring break will be shortened and days will be added to the end of the year.   2 hour delays do not have a significant effect on the calendar.   Our school day is a little longer than required and we can bank those extra minutes to provide for weather delays or required meetings.   I know it is disruptive to household schedules, especially for working parents.   But great consideration is given for student safety.   We also must stay current with instructional requirements and strategies.   Thank you for your patience and understanding.
