A NOTE FROM NURSE MOLLY
 DRESS WARM!: As the weather has been fluctuating from warm to cold- sometimes all in one day, please be sure to dress your children in the appropriate clothing, including coats, socks, and closed toe shoes. It may be best to dress your children in layers as they will be comfortable with the weather changes. We try to go outside as much as possible and we want to ensure that each student keeps warm.

CLINIC CLOTHES: We are running out of extra clothing in the clinic. If your child has borrowed an item of clothing from the clinic, could you please launder the item and return it to school.
JUMP ROPE FOR HEART
We are so excited to report that in total, our Lewis and Clark students raised $11,260 for Jump Rope for Heart!  We are so proud of our students.  A big thanks to all of the families who helped raise money for a great cause!

EARLY RELEASE DAY CHANGES 

The 2018-2019 school year calendar is on our website. Just click here. We are grateful for the home-school partnership in teaching children that every minute counts at school and want to make a special note: Early Release Days move to Wednesdays in 2018-2019. We know many of you use this time to schedule appointments,etc., so your child can be at school when class is in session. The change takes effect in August. We hope that by reminding you of this change over the next few months, you and your family are ready for the next school year. Thank you for support of strong school attendance. #EveryMinuteCounts

PROP 3

Proposition 3: Maintenance. Upgrades & Additions

  Fort Zumwalt’s Proposition 3 is a no-tax-increase $35 million bond issue on the April 3 ballot. The district’s 31 facilities, 27 of which are schools, were most recently assessed at more than $550 million. Regular maintenance and upgrades ensure safe, welcoming learning environments for our students and staff and protect taxpayer investment.

  Prop 3 would provide funds for maintenance of roofs, parking lots and heating & cooling systems. It would provide funds for continued upgrades to computer network infrastructure and building interiors. Additions are needed at Flint Hill Elementary to eliminate mobile classrooms and at North High School to accommodate a growing student population. A new Professional Development Center, capable of providing our teachers adequate learning space and tools, is also needed to keep student achievement moving forward.

  Prop 3 is a no-tax-increase issue. The district collects a debt service levy for paying off bonds (loans) used to fund capital improvements such as maintenance, construction or land purchases (currently 69 cents per $100 of assessed valuation). Strong financial stewardship allows Fort Zumwalt to borrow within the limit of the revenue generated by that 69 cents, so no increase is required to repay the $35 million the district would borrow through Prop 3.
