Federal Impact Aid Survey

Dear Sycamore Parents/Guardians,

We want to inform you that your child will be receiving the Federal Impact Aid Survey on October 15th. Federal Impact Aid supports local school districts with concentrations of children who have parents/guardians in the uniformed services or parents/guardians employed on eligible Federal Properties. For more detailed information on Eligible Federal Properties, visit the Vail District website at (under Upcoming Events).

We are asking that ALL Sycamore parents, even those who are not employed by the federal government, to return their completed forms by October 21st, 2014. Sycamore School will receive credit for every form turned in, including those from non-federal employees. Any funds raised from Federal Impact Aid will go directly to Sycamore Elementary School. This is an excellent opportunity for Sycamore to receive supplementary money for educational purposes!  We are looking for 100% return of these forms.

Thank you for your continued support.  If you have additional questions, you may contact Michelle Quiroz, Director of Finance, at (520) 879-2021, or Esther Lubben, Computer Systems Analyst, at (520) 879-3936.

Thank you,

Sycamore Elementary School

Weather reports indicate that we could receive heavy rains over the next few days which may impact bus transportation to Sycamore.  If buses are not able to get to Sycamore, we will safely house students at school until a parent or designated family member is able to pick them up. 

Depending on weather conditions, after school activities may also be canceled.

Weather is unpredictable.  As of now, we are continuing with our plans for National Honor Society Induction and Family Reading Night.

We will continue to keep you informed as developments occur via our school’s Facebook Page, SchoolMessenger, and our School’s Web Site.

The Future of Education in Corona

You are Invited to tonight’s Community Meeting

Future of Education in Corona

 The Vail School District is working on the development of two plans:

1. The November bond election is successful and funds become available to build a new school in the Corona Area.

2. The bond election fails and no school can be built — requiring more students to be bused from the Corona to other areas in the School District.

The purpose of the meetings is to provide information and receive input.

Tonight, Tuesday 7 PM, Sycamore/Corona Foothills Community Room
Any parent or community member is welcome to attend.

The meeting will be conducted by superintendent Calvin Baker and/or assistant superintendent John Carruth.
