Turman Elementary

2015-2016

 

Turman Elementary is transitioning to an alternative calendar for the 2015-2016 school year.  Our first student day will be July 8th. In planning for this transition, it is important to us that we first care for the needs of our currently enrolled families. Because our school is also becoming a CPCD Pre-School site (we will have 10 pre-school classrooms at Turman), we will be limited to two classroom sections per grade level. We also want to maintain our class sizes at district established pupil-teacher ratios in each classroom. Based on these changes we have established the following priorities:

1.)    Reenroll all currently enrolled students who reside within the Turman attendance boundaries, who indicate an intent to return, and their siblings.

2.)    Enroll students who reside within the Turman attendance boundaries, who are new to the school for the coming school year.

3.)    Reenroll all currently enrolled students who reside outside the Turman attendance boundaries, who indicate an intent to return, and their siblings.

4.)    Enroll new students who reside outside the Turman attendance boundaries, who indicate a desire to attend Turman.

We need your help with three other important changes. First, we will be actively addressing attendance and tardiness issues. We will expect students to be at school on time and for the full school day, and have no more than 10 absences in a calendar year. Second, we will be purchasing needed school supplies for all grade levels and asking parents to pay a $22.50 fee annually to underwrite costs. Students will only need to provide their personal backpacks. Finally, students and parents will be expected to complete nightly homework assignments on school nights (Monday-Thursday). I want all of our families to be aware of these commitments moving forward. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 579-2196.
