Principal's Message

Happy New Year! We hope that you had a wonderful holiday season and the new year brings health and happiness to your family.

As you know, the weather has been frightful, and we have been dealing with ice and snow. We try very hard to keep the school clear, but in the morning please be especially careful. We ask the students to stay off any ice. If they do not have snow boots on, they must stay on the black top and are not allowed on the field. Also, please label all of your child’s coats and hoodies with their name. With the Nevada weather the way it is, on some days the afternoon can warm up enough that our students take off their jackets and leave them on the playground. Our lost and found pile grows during this time of the year, so please take a look outside of the lunchroom if you are missing any items.

This year, the school district has implemented a delayed start to school if the weather is a concern. This will mean that school will start at 9:25am. If we have a late start, we will not be serving breakfast in our cafeteria on these days. In the event that we do have a delayed start to school, it will be broadcast through the local television news programs, a recorded message will be sent by phone, and will be posted on the school district website which can be found at carsoncityschools.com and on our school website, Class Dojo and Facebook page so please make sure to follow us to have the most up to date information.

With the second half of the school year starting, we need to start thinking about all of the state mandated tests that will be coming before we know it. We would like to ask a big favor and request that you please do not plan your family vacations during these testing events. Please take a look at the testing dates outlined in this newsletter, they are also posted on the calendar on our Fritsch website.

We look forward to an awesome second half to our school year. If there is anything that we can do to support you and your child’s academic experience, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Happy New Year- Mr. Brown & Mr. Farnworth
