Conference Week will take place the week of October 15th, Monday through Friday.  Early Release will occur the entire week, as the whole school will be holding conferences. Students will be dismissed two hours early this whole week. Car rider line, buses and ASP will still take place like it typically does.

We would love to have just parents attend conferences if arrangements are able to made, in particular because I will be present and would like to share information and provide academic updates in English with you all.
