We encourage you to get to know your child’s teacher. Parents are invited to make appointments with the teacher or principal by calling the school. Appointments are needed to ensure that the teacher is available to meet with you and is prepared with necessary materials and information. Remember, no conferences can be held while students are in class during instructional hours. Please contact your child's teacher to determine availability for conferences.
We invite you to share some of your time and talents at school by becoming a school volunteer. You can be involved in a wide variety of programs and events or as a classroom volunteer. Please complete the volunteer sign-up process at http://www.duvalschools.org/Page/7416, and check your approval status by contacting front office personnel. It is important to always sign in when entering the school building.
