Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for Thursday, February 1, 2018; 4:15 - 7:15 p.m. Teachers may be contacting some families to schedule appointments; however, please do not hesitate to contact your child's teacher directly via email or phone to schedule an appointment.
Just a reminder during the cold weather, I have encouraged students to cover exposed skin while walking to/from school or waiting for a bus. Students are permitted to wear sweatpants over shorts to school, at arrival can be removed so shorts may be worn in school. Moreover, students are required to have proper cold weather attire to participate in outside recess, weather permitting. During weather related school delays, parents are asked to rely on their best judgement in determining school attendance for their children. For updated weather related school delays and cancellations, please see the main page of the District's website.
All student Progress Reports and Report Cards are posted on the Parent Portal, if you need assistance with your login information, please contact
724-274-8100. If you require a paper copy of your child's report card, please contact the Colfax Main Office at 724-274-7200.
