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.
