Dear Switlik Families,

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and is looking forward to winter break. It is hard to believe winter is here, the first trimester is over and report cards will be ready soon. We want to continue emphasizing the importance of student attendance at school. We have put together an attendance initiative for each class and look forward to giving out prizes and spending time with the winning classes in gym class.

Please mark your calendar:

  • There will be a shortened day on Monday, December 11th with school closing at 1:40 p.m.         

  • Picture Make-Up Day will be held on Wednesday, December 13th

  • There will be a shortened day schedule on Friday, December 22nd  with school closing at 1:40 p.m. 

  • School will be closed on Monday, December 25th through Monday, January 1st for Winter Break.  Students return on Tuesday, January 2, 2024

Staff and students are invited to participate in the “Twelve Days Before Winter Break”  Please click here for each day’s festivities!

Report Cards:  As the first marking period nears an end on December 6th, please be sure you are ready to access your child’s report card on the district portal website.  Report cards will be available on the portal to parents on December 14th.  

We are happy to announce our Educator of the Year, Mrs. Diana McElwee, First Grade Teacher and our Educational Services Professional of the Year, Mrs. Amy Melchiorri, Speech Therapist.  These amazing educators have been recognized for their outstanding dedication and commitment to our Switlik students.  Congratulations to Mrs. McElwee and Mrs. Melchiorri!
