 Dear Sparr Parents and Families,

If you have been by our school recently, you have noticed the presence of various forms of construction. Our “facilities facelift” began this past winter, with roofing replaced and outdoor painting. These are just the start of more good things to come!

 Facilities: As of June 8th, our facility will be totally shut down to the public in order for more intense renovations to continue over the summer. Our school offices and telephones will temporarily be located at Reddick-Collier Elementary, Building 10. The school is located at 4595 W. Hwy 316, Reddick, FL, 32686. We hope to be back on our own site by late July/early August.

 Report Cards/Summer Office: The printing of this year’s report cards will be a bit later than we have enjoyed in previous years, so we are providing all parents with 3 options:

 1. Prior to the last day of school, June 3rd, (next Wednesday), parents may send in a self-addressed, stamped envelope, including your child’s name. These will be collected and held by our front office staff until such time that the report cards arrive, and then used to mail them home.

2. Beginning June 15, 2015 parents may go to Reddick Elementary to pick up their child’s report card, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., Mon-Thurs. We will be closed on Fridays.

3. Parents may also choose to wait until school starts again in August. At this time, any report cards remaining will be sent home with individual children.

 Extended Learning School: Recently a bill was passed in Tallahassee that maintains all schools’ status for one more year. Because of the problems with statewide testing, and the delay in receiving student data, we will not receive all of our students’ scores or school grade until sometime early next fall at best. Therefore next August, we will again be designated as an Extended Learning School, which means that we will continue to embed an additional hour of reading instruction into our school day. At Sparr, we KNOW by reviewing our students’ work onsite that their skills are improving, so the additional time IS making a difference. We are eagerly awaiting the state’s results and are very proud of the growth that our students have accomplished!

 Thank you for your patience and understanding. We will continue to make safety and academic rigor a priority at Sparr. Thank you as always for your support of your child’s education.
