Preparing for Parent/Teacher Conferences at Sandburg

Calling the Sandburg Office

Oct 11, 2019 From 3:20 - 3:40, our first priority is the dismissal process and making sure that all 270 students get on the correct bus; to scope; home in the right car; or walking home in the ight direction.  During this window of time, we do not answer the telephone so our focus can remain on what’s important -- getting all of the children home safely.

Every Minute Counts at Sandburg

Aug 21, 2019 It’s important that every child gets the most out of each day of learning at school.  One way we strive toward this goal is by providing continuous learning from 9:00 - 3:30 each and every day.  You can help!  ~ Please make sure your child is on time to school.  Learning begins at 9:00.  If your child is late for school, not only has he missed learning, but his late arrival will interrupt learning for an entire class of students.
