    A Friendly Reminder 10/13/19

    Dear Parent or Guardian,

    We are asking for 15 minutes of your time to complete an online survey that will help us improve your child’s school. We have asked YouthTruth – a national nonprofit that supports hundreds of schools and districts across the county – to conduct an anonymous survey on our behalf.

    Please take the survey anytime between now and midnight on October 25th  by clicking this link:

    Please note:

    The survey needs to be completed in one sitting.

    We ask that one member of each household fill out the survey.

    If you have more than one child who attends the same school, you may respond to the survey   multiple times - one time per child.

    If you write any comments, please don’t include your name or anything else that might identify you. Your responses are anonymous, and they will be combined with the responses of other parents and guardians before being shared back with school and district leadership.


    We sincerely thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Your response is incredibly valuable to us.
    Thank you!
