Click for the sign-up link for K-5 assessment.

Enter through the Main Street doors and go directly to the child’s classroom.
Masks are recommended but not required. Families have the option to choose to wear a mask. The teacher will ask each child to unmask during the quick read so that the teacher can hear the child reading clearly. This lasts only a few minutes.

Office business can take place while you are in the school building – dropping off forms, payments, etc.

Preschool students are welcome to stop in and check out the preschool classrooms – no appointment is necessary from 9:00-12:00 on either day. This is optional but recommended for those little ones who may feel a bit apprehensive.

Students in grades 6-8 – a little one-on-one time with your teacher is always awesome. Stop in without an appointment anytime between 9:00 – 12:00 on either day. Stay for 10-15 minutes .
