Meet the Teacher Day
Students who signed up for Face to Face: Students will be able to come to the Greene School. They will sign up for a 15 minute time slot to meet their team of teachers, drop off supplies on their desk, and have school pictures taken in the cafeteria. In addition, parents of 5th graders can use a drive through chromebook check out (in our parking lot) while students are inside. Also, if your student was given a laptop during quarantine at the elementary school, that device will be collected at this time. You will then check out a new chromebook from Greene. An electronic sign-up will be available in next Friday’s Smore (August 21st) after the students learn their homeroom placement.
Students who signed up for the Virtual Classroom: Students will also be able to meet their teacher through a virtual format. Virtual Classroom teachers will communicate how students can join once homeroom placements are shared. We will also have a time where 5th grade parents will be able to use the drive through chromebook check out. We will be collecting devices from 5th graders at this time.

Updating Final Forms
As in the past, we need ALL parents or guardians to log into Final Forms and update any necessary changes for our 2020-2021 school year ASAP. Also newly added is a Covid-19 Parent Agreement that must be signed before the school year begins. You are required to sign the forms at the beginning of each new school year. A signature is also required after any update or as additional forms are added.
We are asking that ALL parents of students log into FinalForms and complete their forms for the 2020-2021 school year ASAP so that potential issues/problems/questions can be addressed before our return to school in September. Some forms require a student signature.
