Thank you -
Thank you to the PTO, staff, students and families for a wonderful “Donuts with Grownup” event throughout the week. We are so happy many of you were able to join us. We hope you enjoyed this community gathering.
NWEA winter results will come home in your child’s take home folder on Friday, Feb. 28th. This computer adaptive testing is given to students 3 times per year. It helps determine your child’s instructional level and measures academic growth throughout the school year. During the winter testing window, only reading and math are assessed.

Reminder about dismissal changes and vacations -
If you and your family are planning a vacation or educational trip, please remember to fill out the vacation request form in the main office in advance of the trip. This is district policy. Be sure to contact the main office ahead of time, as we track any and all absences.
Please submit any changes to dismissal plans by 3:00 p.m in writing to the main office. Email PSchmidt@bloomfield.org and SGerard@bloomfield.org These emails are looked upon as emergency, as a dismissal note should always be sent in with your child. At 3:00 p.m., our office team begins the careful preparation for dismissal and will utilize whatever the last known plan was for your child.
