Information about Children's Sleep

We have created a webpage to give parents some ideas to help their child develop a better sleep routine.

It is estimated that more than 60% of infants, children and teens have problems with sleeping.  A lack of sleep impacts emotions, bodily functions, attention, focus and performance and social situations.

Parent satisfaction survey

The district’s biennial Parent Satisfaction Survey will be available online between February 2 and March 27.
 
The survey seeks parent feedback in three general areas:
  • Academics
  • Climate & Safety
  • Communication/Parent Engagement
The survey is not an assessment of an individual teacher, administrator or staff, but an overall review of your child’s 
school. Parents are encouraged to complete a survey for each school their children attend, but only one per school.
 
Survey results will be used by each school to assess areas of improvement. 
 
The survey may be taken in English online by clicking here.
 
Paper copies in Spanish and Somali are also available in the Washburn office.
