Parents and Patrons,
We made it through the first week of school! I hope everyone had an enjoyable experience. Thank you for your commitment to your child’s education and your partnership with our teachers and administrators. As a result, Southern Boone School District is ranked among the top schools in the state on student academic performance indicators. I realize that we all have busy schedules; should you have questions or concerns, never hesitate to meet with you student’s teachers and administrators. Our intent is to work together to provide the best possible educational program for your child.
This school year we have implemented a change in the school’s calendar, specifically in the way our teachers meet for professional development and curriculum improvement. In the past, the Primary and Elementary had early out schedules and the Middle School and High School had late start schedules. In both situations, the students were supervised and school buses ran at regular times giving parents the option to pick up their student early or drop off their student later in the day. During these times part of the teachers and all of the administrators were supervising students. This school year we are releasing all students at 2:30 and the buses will drop students off early. This will allow the teachers to meet in teams with their administrator.
It is important to me that you realize this change and are prepared before our first early out at 2:30 on Wednesday, August 20. Thank you for your assistance.
Superintendent of Schools
Patrons and Students,
In an effort to meet the needs of our students, the district purchased a new service to help identify and resolve concerns. Whether it is bullying, violence, crime or something you just need to talk to someone about, please let us know. Tell a parent, tell a teacher, or use our school hotline.
If you send a text message, a school official can reply to you. If you call, you will be asked to leave a voice message that a school official can listen to. They are not able to see your phone number or identity. To the extent that the caller wants to be, concerns can be expressed completely in an anonymous approach.
Posters have been hung in each of the building promoting the system.
The success of every student is critical. If concerns are not resolved effectively it affects kids in negative ways. I encourage you to report concerns to the building administrators or myself. In the event that you do not feel comfortable reporting concerns in person, then I ask that you call our school hotline at (573) 271-2010.
