Family Trips During Assessment Windows
As we have done in the past, family trips taken during assessment windows will be marked as Unexcused. This is because the data collected during these assessments informs our practice and supports your child’s learning. Naturally, our preference is for families to travel during vacation periods outlined by the ISD. If your family needs to travel outside of those windows, please be aware of two things:
Please have your online orders finished by 9:00 am Friday, March 24th if you child will be having an Individual photo taken. Their picture will not be taken unless they have the envelope with payment or an online order has been placed.
Online orders for Individual pictures placed after 9am will not be fulfilled.
You may order class pictures online or with an envelope sent with your child to school.

If you’re having struggles this week due to the ‘spring forward’ time change, you are not alone! It can be hard for children(and adults) as they adjust to the changes that go along with losing that hour on our clocks this week.
Report Cards for the end of trimester are live and available for parent viewing on Family Access. Directions for how you can access and view your student’s report card can be found on the district website. Blank translations of the report cards are also available on the district website in Spanish, Chinese, Korean, and Russian. Reach out to your student’s teacher if you would like more information regarding your student’s progress.
Strategic planning work proceeds this week, with a work study session prior to the regular School Board meeting as well as a regular session discussion item. The district is creating a three-year strategic plan that will identify specific goals, strategies for reaching those goals, and metrics to measure progress.
At this week’s School Board meeting, staff and board members will continue discussions about the 2023-24 budget process. The recommended reduction for next year is about $9.8 million, with 81% of that amount at the central Administration Building and Operations. A Reduction in Force (RIF) of certificated staff members is not part of the proposed reductions.
