‘Your children need your presence more than your presents’Jesse Jackson

Our year is quickly moving along and our students are amazing!  Thank you for your support of teaching and learning at Chaparral. 

Parent/Teacher conferences:  Friendly reminder, conferences will be held Oct. 21 and 24, 2016.  This is a mandatory conference and Progress Reports will not be given out until parents/guardians meet with teachers.  Please contact teachers regarding requests for scheduling changes.  Schedules should have gone home last week from each classroom teacher.  There  will be no classes for students on those days. Students should attend their own conferences.

Off Site Evacuation:  Chaparral Elementary School will be conducting an Off Site evacuation on Friday, Oct. 28.  We will do this from 9:00am to approximately 10:15 am and will walk to the Santa Fe High School Gym, then return to school.   This Is a routine practice for the safety of your children in case we ever need to leave the campus for an emergency.  We are working closely with Santa Fe High School, the police and Fire Department for this exercise.  We are planning for students who need assistance.  

Dental Sealants:  Parents/guardians of students in grades 1-3 need to return Dental Sealant forms by  Oct. 27 with answering Yes or No regarding sealant requests.  If you answer Yes, your student can have dental sealants done on Nov. 9 and 10.  

Public Flu Shot Clinic:  There will be a public Flu Shot Clinic at Christus St. Vincent’s Medical Dental Building on October 22 from 8:00-2:00.  Any other information regarding Flu Shots will be sent immediately.
