Bruce Vento Family Room

Family Connect
  • At Bruce Vento Elementary, we believe in the power of partnerships between home and school. We encourage families to connect with teachers and staff regarding any questions or wonderings. We are here to support your child, family, and the larger community with information and resources.

    We value your insight and feedback. Please contact our family room with any questions or suggestions you may have.

    We appreciate all you are doing to support your child’s education.  We embrace the beauty of our rich diversity. Interpreters are available to assist families throughout the school day. All school documents may be translated upon request.  If you need help, contact the main office, 651-293-8685.
