All parents are asked to please fill out the survey using the link below. The Iowa Department of Education is gathering data as a census for both students with and without an IEP using a brief survey.  Part B of the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) requires states to report the percent of parents with a child receiving special education services who report that schools facilitated parent involvement as a means of improving services and results for children with IEPs.

Survey Information:
Please use the link above to answer the four questions for each of your children. The survey will allow you to answer these questions for up to five children.

Meal Accounts- all meal accounts should have a zero or positive balance at the end of the school year.  Any money remaining in their accounts will roll over to the 2019-20 school year. You can check your students’ account balances through your parent portal.  Thank you!

As the weather gets warmer we remind parents to follow the Footwear Dress Guide from the Parent-Student Handbook for their child’s safety - “Flip-flops or similar footwear is not appropriate to wear at school.
