Inclement Weather Arrival Plan
As fall settles in and the barometer drops, there is the need to outline Bishop's inclement arrival

On mornings when it is raining, snowing heavily, and/or when the temperature is below 20
degrees, we will run an INDOOR arrival.

- Grades k-2 report to the Gym
- Grades 3-5 report to the Cafeteria

When you arrive on campus, your child may enter through the front or back door where Mr.
Lordan and I will be standing. Parents and family members say goodbye at the door.

PTO News
The Bishop School's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a group of parents, teachers and
community members that plans events throughout the year to both raise funds and support the
Bishop School community. Last year, the PTO raised over $55,000 which funded school-wide
enrichment programs, Bishop classrooms, teachers and administration, school improvement
projects, and other community initiatives. We welcome anyone to join us, at our next meeting or
by getting involved in any way you can.

No Child Left Behind

The federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires states and school districts to produce and disseminate annual report cards.

These report cards include information on student assessment, accountability, andteacher quality; the report cards may also include other information. They also provide parents and other members of the public a snapshot of student performance and teacher qualifications in their local schools.
