Calamity Day Make-Up

Dear Parents,
Spring Garden Waldorf 2014 Auction CatalogThe snow and bitter cold of winter caused us to miss a total of seven days of school this year, two more than we are allowed by Ohio state law. Even though the recently passed House Bill 416 gives Ohio’s school district four additional calamity days, those four days are not to be used until the district uses four contingency days. For that reason, we are required to make up two of our calamity days. Our make-up days will be May 5 and 6, two days that we had set aside for parent-teacher conferences. How will this work?
     – School will be in session May 5 and 6 from 8:30 a.m. (normal start time) until 2:00 p.m.
     – Parent-teacher conferences will not be required for all parents, but will be available on
          request by parent or teacher
     – Conference times will be scheduled on May 5 and 6 between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m.
          Sign-up sheets will be posted outside the office.
     – Aftercare will be available from 2:00 until 6:00, as on any early dismissal day
If you would like to schedule a parent-teacher conference and no sign-up time is available, please contact your child’s teacher directly. All written assessments for students will be distributed to parents in early June.
Thank you for your support of this schedule change.
