Sycamore Park Light Pole Replacement

Next Monday, March 4th, Bear Electric will be on site at Sycamore Park to install new street light foundations for two light poles that will be replaced. This work is expected to take two days – day 1 being Monday, March 4th, and day 2 being sometime the following week, depending on weather. Bear plans to begin work about 8:30 a.m. They will have signage on each side of each work area that says “Wait for Escort” and will have a flagger dedicated to helping people around the work zones. Most of the work should be off of the path, but some equipment may need to be staged on portions of the path in order to do the work. The work will be completed during school hours when pedestrian/bike traffic is at a minimum.

Spring Conference Week

Teachers have begun sending home information about conferencing that will take place the week of March 18th. If you are interested in requesting a conference with your child’s teacher, please reach out to them directly using their signup options.


Smart Watches At School

There has been an increase in the use of smart watches and cell phones by students during the school day. We instruct students to not contact/communicate with friends or family until the school day ends. If you need to notify your child, please contact the front office and we can relay important messages when it is appropriate. Improper use of personal devices during the school day can lead to restrictions of use including confiscation. Please support us in this endeavor. Thank you
