Take Your Child to Work Day

Take Your Child to Work Day is April 26th.  Parents who want to take their child to work should send a note to school prior to April 26th.  If the school receives a note, the absence will be counted as a "field trip."  Please note, April 26th is a PARCC testing day for Grade 5.  Since testing is in the morning, we encourage any 5th grader attending work with their parent to go in the afternoon.
