Early dismissal day

Just a reminder that Thursday, November 19th is an Early Dismissal Day for all SD83 elementary schools (except for Falkland which is Nov. 26), plus Carlin and Len Wood Middle Schools.

This time will be used for teachers to facilitate formal goal-setting conferences with students and parents. Most conferences will occur via video chats or phone calls. In certain situations, in-person meetings may be considered when physical distancing and safety protocols can be maintained.

Parents will receive information from their child’s school about conference times, conference format, and early dismissal times (all participating schools will dismiss 3 hours earlier than normal and buses will run 3 hours earlier than their regular schedule). If you have any questions please contact the principal at your child’s school.

Just a heads-up, with so many things now being done by telephone or online, SD83 has added additional capacity to enable district staff to call parents through the use of Microsoft Teams phones. Rather than showing on call display as SD83 or your child’s school, these calls may show up as No Caller ID and may show up on your call display as (236) 600 – 9089.

Please answer as it will be a teacher attempting to contact you.
