AUGUST 16, 2023 - NEWSLETTER
The new school year is just around the corner! I am excited to meet new students and families and re-engage with returning students and families starting at our Open House event on August 29. Our staff are preparing for a supportive start to the school year. Please read this letter thoroughly and keep an eye on your email inbox throughout August as we approach the start of school.
The first day of school for our incoming 9th graders and any new students is Tuesday, September 5. This is an orientation day. The first day of school for all returning 10th-12th graders is Wednesday, September 6. Please review the other information provided here as you prepare for the start of the 2023-2024 school year.
Find schedules and get ready
Final student schedules for the first trimester will be available on Student Campus Portal beginning August 25.
Visit the Back-to-School hub at SpringLakeParkSchools.org/BackToSchool and refer to the “Back to School” email sent August 9 for your back-to-school checklist. You’ll find school supply lists, the Educational Benefits application (Please complete an application!), iPad preparation information, and more.
Meet teachers and visit the building
We hope your student(s) and family can come by and visit the building before the first day of school. We will host an open house for all grade levels on Tuesday, August 29, 3-7 p.m. Our teachers will be available in their classrooms during the times listed for the students they teach. We are inviting families at different times based on the grade of the student:
- Families with 10th – 12th grade students should come 3 – 5 p.m.
- Families with 9th grade students should come 5 – 7 p.m.
Students transitioning from 8th grade at Westwood Middle School should bring their current SLP school-issued iPad, case and charger. Incoming 9th graders will exchange these for a new iPad and accessories. Any students new to the district will be able to pick up their school-issued iPad, case and charger.
All students are invited to:
- Review your class schedule
- Meet teachers
- Walk your schedule and see your classrooms
- Have your school photo taken
- Turn in required forms
- Learn about getting involved in activities and athletics
If you are unable to attend an open house and have questions about schedules, please reach out to your counselor.
Getting to and from school
If your student rides the bus, information about bus stop, pick up and drop off times is expected to be mailed to homes the week of August 21. Please plan for your student to ride the bus on the first day of school to help us work out all our routines and eliminate as much confusion as possible.
For families who drive their student, please drop off and pick up at the main entrance (Door #1).

As we start the year, keep our office and school hours and key contact numbers nearby:

I will provide more information about the first week of school in upcoming communications. Watch for school communications – email and text – each Wednesday. In the meantime, I hope you and your student enjoy these remaining days of summer.
All of us at Spring Lake Park High School look forward to seeing you soon!
