​Since we only have two reporting periods this year (December and June), we felt it was still important to touch base with parents in March to discuss student progress and student goals since we last met in December. Therefore, parent teacher conferences will take place on March 22nd and 23rd without report cards. This is also a good time to discuss how parents and teachers can best support student learning and growth as we head in to the last few months of the school year. Conference information will be provided soon.

As this is approximately the mid-way point of the school year, it is important that you let the school know of any changes to your address, phone numbers, email addresses, and emergency contacts. The school always needs to most up-to-date information about your child in case of any unexpected incidents or emergencies. If your child has developed any allergies or health conditions, the school must also be notified of this, and any medication they may need will require you to drop it off at the office and for you to complete the corresponding paperwork. This also holds true if there are changes to the custody agreement for the student. The school must have copies of the legal paperwork to be able to enforce any custody agreements. If the school does not have any current paperwork, then both parents have legal access to their child, upon providing proper identification.

The safety of all students is always the priority of the school. Please help us by providing the school the most current contact, health, and legal information. This is also a good opportunity to remind parents to use the student drop off areas across the street from the school. The staff parking is NOT a safe student drop off area. Parents are also not allowed to park there as every spot is assigned to a staff member.

There are no classes for CBE students on Friday, Sept 20 because it’s a system-wide non-instructional day. Have a great weekend! #yycbe #WeAreCBE
