Parent Teacher Conferences
This year fall conferences will be the evenings of Wednesday, October 19th and Thursday, October 20th and spring conferences will be Wednesday, March 8th and Thursday, March 9th for Granger and Thoman Schools. Appointments will be available for parents who are unable to attend an evening conference. Friday, October 23rd and Friday, March 11th, schools will be closed to accommodate for the evening hours teachers have facilitated to meet with parents. At McKinnon School the parent teacher conferences will remain on the early out days of October 21st and March 10th.
Parents with access to a computer are encouraged to periodically check their children’s grades and assignments by using the Infinite Campus System on the Internet (see Student Information System above). Report cards are distributed every nine (9) weeks. If there are questions about a child's report card, contact his/her teacher immediately. Parents should let the school secretary know at the beginning of each school year if a copy of the report card and/or other school work should be sent to a parent who lives at another address.
Parents are always welcome to visit the school for purposes of observation. Any visits during the school day should be for that purpose only, unless a conference time with a teacher has been prearranged. Conferences and visits must be planned with a one-day notice. Your cooperation with this is greatly appreciated.
For the protection of the students and security in the school, it is required any person entering the building during the school day present a driver’s license or other state form of identification.
Students will not be permitted to leave the building with a visitor unless cleared through the school. Students from other schools are not permitted to visit class with your child unless there are justifiable and compelling circumstances.
Leaving School Grounds
Children are not to leave the school grounds once they have arrived at school for the regular school day. If the child is to leave school, for the safety of the child, we ask that the child be “signed out” by a guardian. A child will not be sent home without verified contact with a parent/guardian. All students are expected to leave the school grounds promptly at the end of the school day unless participating in a school sponsored activity. Any student planning to remain after school with a teacher is expected to get permission from a guardian.
