SCHOOL GROWTH PLAN - At Perley this year we are focusing on trying to reduce the anxiety some students have at school. It is difficult to focus on learning when students are anxious or struggling emotionally, so we are working as a staff with several programs and strategies to help more students feel regulated and happy at school.
BUS PERMISSION SLIPS - A reminder to parents that if their child will be riding a different bus or getting off at a different stop, other than their assigned stop, the Office must receive a note from a parent or guardian with full details. The Office Administration will complete a "Bus Permission" slip for the student to give to the bus driver for that particular day.
