Conant Elementary School

As an IB Primary Years Programme school, Conant Elementary "focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside." Our students participate in project-based learning that reflects the PYP philosophy of an integrated curriculum and incorporates 21st Century skills, global-mindedness, and the Common Core State Standards. We utilize inquiry-based instructional practices that build on children's natural curiosity and encourage students to use critical thinking skills, reflect on their learning and compassionately develop solutions for real-world problems.

School Forms

Extended Absence Form

Regular attendance in school is a prerequisite to learning and it is the policy of the Board of Education to support and encourage regular school attendance. The Board of Education realizes that travel is instructional and educational, but believes that such travel should be taken during vacation periods.

Absences due to family trips are strongly discouraged. Such absences should not exceed FIVE days per school year. Exceptions can be made by the principal for unique educational opportunities when approval is received in advance.  Please complete this form for approval.
