School Announcements

  • Attendance is VERY Important!

    Daily attendance of students is very important to help them learn and practice the skills they need to become as independent as possible.  Please help us make sure they attend school each and every day from 9:00 - 3:00.  Every minute counts!  If a student is absent,we ask that parent/guardian send in a note for the absence to be considered as excused.  Please use the attached form to help us document the reason for the absence.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Lisa Ritter, Registrar. excusal form.doc

  • Parent Portal - Make sure you sign up for a Parent Portal account. This is the best way to keep your student's information current with the school and gives you access to important school information. Please see the teacher, registrar or an administrator to get your initial access to an account. This will be a much easier way to give the school information and you won't have to complete numerous forms by hand!

    Celebrating 50+ years of EXCEPTIONAL Instruction for Students!



    Welcome to the 2024-2025 School Year!  This is our 53rd  EXCEPTIONAL year as a school!  We have lots to celebrate!
    We have a Circus theme this year:  Everhart: The Greatest Show on Earth!  You will find that our staff are "Owlmazing" and are great ringmasters  as they help students perform Owlmazing feats under our BIG TOP!  
    We want to welcome our new Assistant Principal - Mrs. Kristy Ward!  We are so happy to have her join our staff officially.  She will also continue to support the district as the Transition Specialist and the Assistant Principal for the Lively Transition Program and the Adults with Disabilities Program.
    We recognize that this year may continue to have challenges for us all.  We want to provide support to you and your child as we provide instruction to students.   Teachers and staff will continue to provide instruction based on the individualized needs of each of the students.
    We are puttling into place a number of practices that will help us all stay safe and well.   We will ask all parents who drop off and pick up their child to wait outside the front office  and a staff member will come to assist you with your child.  
    We ask that you do what you can to help keep your child learning and engaged.  Setting up a routine with your child and using visual reminders about that schedule and trying to stick with it (to include break times) will help.  We know this is a challenge for us all but we have each other.  We can do this!  It is going to be "Owlright"
    We truly have Owlmazing students and staff that are Super Heroes! 

    If your family is in of need assistance from social services, please contact us here at the school so that we can get guidance from our social worker to help you.

    What is MOST important to us is your well-being.  Education is important but so is your health, well-being and emotional health. If we can be of any assistance to you and your family, please let us know.

    -with LOVE

    Jane Floyd Bullen, Principal 
    Kristy Ward, Assistant Principal
