Student Cohort Assignments-
All students have been assigned to a cohort for the upcoming school year. Each family should have received a message on Monday evening through our district system which indicated your child's assigned cohort. If you did not receive the aforementioned message please reach out to our main office so that we can share this information with you.
Student Homeroom Assignments and Transportation Information-
Classroom assignments and bus stop information will be shared through the Genesis Parent Portal during the final week of August. Please be sure that you are able to log into the Parent Portal using the email address on file for your account. If you do not know your password, you can enter the email on file and click "Forgot Password"
All district parent forms will be completed electronically through the Genesis Parent Portal. A message will go out to families when the forms become available. Parents/guardians are encouraged to complete these forms prior to the first day of school.

Heading back to school in the fall can be stressful in a typical year, and I'm sure we all agree that this year has been anything but typical. The Edutopia website offers several resources for families such as Back-to-School checklists, articles about easing transitions, technology tips, and much more. August is an excellent time to set the stage for your child whether he/she will participate in the hybrid or full remote model. Be sure to share positive messages about school and reassure your child that even though school will look a little different this year, the parents and teachers are going to work together to make learning fun!
