Change of Address/Phone Number
To ensure your child's safety, the school must have accurate information---and be able to reach parents quickly---in the event of an emergency. Please report any change of address and/or phone number(s) to the school office immediately.
The entire family is invited to come to school for Open House. Your child will enjoy showing you around the school, introducing you to all their teachers, and showing all of their accomplishments.
Parent permission is required when students are taken off the school campus. If your child has not returned the permission slip required for a field trip, he/she will not be permitted to go. Students who are not able to attend field trips with their class will be assigned to another classroom for the day. Please note that younger siblings are not allowed to accompany students on field trips. This is a special time for the school-age child. Parent chaperones must provide their own transportation. All students are required to ride Bartlett City school buses.
Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled twice during the school year. Fall and spring conferences can be scheduled at the request of either the parent or the teacher. In many cases, parent/teacher conferences offer sufficient opportunity for communication; however if necessary, additional school/home contacts may be required.
Contact via E-mail
E-mail is the best way to contact your child's teacher. You will find teacher E-mail links on teacher web pages. You may also call the school office and leave a message (although playing "phone tag" may prove frustrating), or send a note with your child.
Report cards are issued four times during the school year. Student evaluations will be completed in October, December, March, and June.
A school yearbook is available for purchase. Be sure to order early, as the number of orders received determines how many yearbooks are printed.
