Good evening Forest City-Dunbar Families,
I hope that you all have had a great break! We have missed the children, and we look forward to having everyone back in the building tomorrow. This week we will have a Science Night on Thursday, April 11th from 5:30-7:00. We encourage families to come and take part in this event. Report cards will be sent home on Friday of this week. As a reminder, our school day starts at 8:15. Students that arrive after 8:15 are considered tardy and will need to be walked in to the building by an adult. Also, our dismissal time is 3:15. We highly discourage early check-outs, as this takes away from instructional time. Thank you all for your support!
