Interpreter Form - Please complete the following --- Form for requesting help  -- So Victoria can support communication with our Spanish speaking families.

Parking -  Be sure to be cautious about parking on the street. From our neighbor - "I live on the corner of Harvey and Scales on the same side of the street as Underwood.  Your teachers and parents park by our house daily.  This is fine except for when they block our driveway".

Access Testing - See Sheree's email about testing schedule. We have tried to reduce the number of interruptions with this required test for students with English as a Second Langauge (ESL), so be flexible when they are needed to test.
