North Glendale Family Update

April 18, 2021

Good morning!

This week we kick off our MAP testing season with our 3rd graders. We are excited for them to show what they know! Parents of 3rd graders, please refer to the communication I have sent to you previously with dates and requests for support.

Even in the midst of a pandemic, 4th quarter is STILL super packed and exciting. There is a LOT in this update so hang on tight!

Have a great week and be sure to reach out with any questions or conversation!

Allergy Season!

It's here!

Allergies are for sure a nuisance ~ I get it! However, we cannot accommodate requests to keep kids in for recess due to allergies. We do not have consistent supervision and also no space!

Please notify the office if you are not planning on returning to NG next school year.

Annual Update for 2021-2022

On Saturday, in the KSD eSpotlight, we shared that the annual update process is starting for the 2021-22 school year. This annual update process is necessary to ensure we have accurate important student information, such as addresses, phone numbers, emergency contacts, and medical needs. Whether your child is learning in person, or at home, this information is very important. We are committed to your child's health and safety, but we need your help.

Please take a moment to complete the Annual Update of Medical Information. This critical and confidential health information will enable us to provide the safest and most individualized care to our students. Together, we can help manage your child's chronic health conditions and help them stay safe and healthy at school.

This is information for the 21-22 school year and parents are required to complete it through Infinite Campus. Please note that if you have a change of address from last school year, you must upload new proofs of residency. You will not be able to progress beyond the first screen if you do not have the two proofs of residency available for submission.

If you know your Infinite Campus login, information please do the following:

  1. Login to your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account

  2. Click on the menu icon on the top left

  3. Click “More” on the bottom of the menu
