School Website and Infinite Campus Contact Information

Please check the Read Website frequently for important information, important dates, Read's Family Handbook and more.  

Also, it is very important that all families have the most up to date contact information listed in Infinite Campus. With new visitor protocols, our school staff relies on this information to ensure you are receiving all the up to date school and classroom information. It is also very important that we can reach you quickly if your student is sick or there is an emergency.




In an effort to still track return to school dates for students, we would like you to continue to notify your student's school when they have symptoms, have tested positive or have been a close contact/household contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID.

Please either Call or Email:

The school Office 920-424-0172

School Nurse 920-424-0172 ext. 2203 




Early Release - Wednesday, Nov. 10th

Herd Game - Friday, November 19th (Payment and forms due 11/11/21)

Thanksgiving Break 24th-26th


If your child is going to be absent or late for school for any reason, please contact the office at 920-424-0172.  If we are unable to speak to us directly, you may leave a message on the voice mail system to report the absence.  Please be specific when calling your child in. If it is an illness we do need to know all the symptoms the child is having as well as the best number to reach you at if we have any further questions. Absences are considered "unexcused" if we do not hear from a parent/guardian by 9 am.  Students who are absent from school more than 10 minutes of any part of the day without a proper excuse shall be recorded as unexcused.  A student who is absent less than 10 minutes of a day shall be recorded as tardy.  The time a student enters or leaves the building will be documented, and the system will calculate the absence accordingly and uniformly across the district.  Please keep this in mind as you schedule appointments for your children.  It is always best to schedule appointments during non-school hours.  Students are expected to be in class from 7:45 to 2:45 daily.


Please refer to Section 4.1 of the District Handbook above in regards to entering the school building.  Parents will not be allowed to enter the school building for any reason, unless pre-approved by the building principal or designee.  Parents needing to pick up their child during school hours will need to call the office at 920-424-0172 and then wait by Door 1 for the student to come out the front door.  Parents will not be allowed to enter the building to visit classrooms or the cafeteria without explicit permission from the building principal.

Clothing Donations Needed

We are in need of clothing to be used within our building for students who have accidents or spill on their clothing. This is so the student can return to the learning environment much sooner than waiting for a parent to bring clothing for them to change into.

Items we are in need of:

Pants - sizes 4 through Junior small


Underwear (especially the smaller sizes)




Please mark your calendars for the early dismissal dates this year.

School will dismiss at 12:30 and there are NO 4K classes on Early Release Days.

Winter-Concert-Image-1 - Great Hearts Archway Veritas, Serving Grades K-5

We are scheduled to do a Winter concert this year on Thursday, Dec. 16th at 6 PM.

Everything we have heard so far is that we are still allowed to do the concert, with some Covid expectations of course.

  We are working under the understanding that if anything in the community changes, we may not be able to do the concert as expected.


From the Media Center:

In October we focused on ‘Introduction’ as our theme to Digital Citizenship. At home, you can use this Family Guide to help your family become better digital citizens! November and December’s theme is Media Balance and Well-Being. You can see our guiding questions here:

  • How do you say goodbye to technology when you don’t want to? (K)

  • Why is it important to listen to your feelings when using technology? (1st)

  • Why is it important that we have device-free moments in our lives? (2nd)

  • How do digital citizens take responsibilities for themselves, their communities, and their world? (3rd)

  • What makes a healthy media choice? (4th)

  • What does media balance mean for me? (5th)

Are you looking for virtual reading opportunities with your child? Do you want to help your child find books and put them on hold? Check out this guide for more information about virtual reading options that are free to you as part of our school subscriptions!

Please make sure to return your library books each week! This helps us share our resources with other students!
