Stay Informed and Get Involved

Staying informed about your child's academic performance and behavior at school is key to making sure he/she is developing the skills he/she will need to be successful in college and careers.

The easiest way to stay updated about your child's education is to get involved at your child's school: check in regularly with your child's teacher(s), attend parent teacher conferences, volunteer at school events, and/or join the parent association.

Clear the Air
STOP IDLING  - your vehicle idles when the engine is on but it isn't moving.  Reducing idling makes the air cleaner for your kids and will help reduce asthma symptons. The law now limits vehicle idling to no more than ONE minute adjacent to a public or private school.  Fines of $300 or more may be issued.
