Safety is and will continue being our top priority at Conley. We have reviewed our safety measures as we do often and we have identified the following areas in which we need your help:
1. Readily provide your I.D. when you wish to volunteer and/or participate in school/classroom events.
2. Wear the printed name badge given to you at the front desk during your visit.
3. Do not open exterior campus doors for other parents or visitors during the school day. All parents and visitors must check-in at the front office when visiting.
4. If you arrive at or after 8:30 A.M. to drop off your student(s), you must escort them to the front office and sign them in.
5. If your student attends the before and/or after school care program, you must walk them into the cafeteria and sign them in/out.
6. If you use the car pick up lane at dismissal, be sure to have your Conley placard hanging from your rearview mirror or visible. If you do not have your placard, you will be asked to park and walk in to the front office to verify your identity.
7. Any time your child's transportation changes, please inform their teacher with a written note or email. Providing this information in writing allows the teachers to forward this information to all personnel that need to know. We cannot change a student's transportation when we do not have a document indicating that change.
Please understand these measures are not to inconvenience you, but to help keep our students safe.
Thank you for your help!
When reaching your child's teacher:
Please use our school email accounts to communicate with your child's teacher.

Homework & Projects:
DUE DATES MUST BE MET for all assignments. The expectation for Middle School is that the students keep up with their assignments, complete them and turn them in on time. It is important that they develop these skills this year. They should be checking their own scores on the parent portal for grades.
LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED for full credit. ALL DUE DATES MUST BE MET to receive full credit. Assignments that are turned in the next day will receive a 10% - 20% reduction in the score for graded work. Ungraded work will be noted "Late".Any Reading assignment or Social Studies assignment that was started in the classroom but not completed should be finished at home for homework the same night. If your child is not writing down their assignments they did not finish, remind them it is their responsibility to note the reading assignments and social studies assignments they did not finish on their planner.Completion of homework and classwork on time is important. It helps the students to develop responsibility and homework supports the practice for the work done in the classroom. Work that is not turned in receives a score of "Z" in the grade book which enters into their grade average as a zero and will not drop.Each student is required to maintain their agenda. The student is responsible for copying all homework and project assignments into their agendas. Agenda checks may be done periodically by the teacher to verify the students are using their Agendas. If you do not see this information in their Agenda, please remind them that it is their responsibility to maintain their agenda. All classrooms post homework on the white boards in their classrooms. The consequencews for not keeping up with your assignments and writing them down in an agenda become greater as the students move forward in their education careers.Independent Reading: Read AR book 35 minutes daily(245 min./week)
