Back to School Night! August 31-September 3, 2020

Each teacher is planning a Back to School Night for parents. Please see the schedule below for the day and time of your child's Back to School Night. This event will be virtual using Google Meet. Please plan to log on with your child's Chromebook using the link that will be in his/her classroom to join the meeting. Teachers will begin and end on time, so please be on time. The Back to School Night meeting will be recorded, so parents will be able to watch the recording if you miss the night your child's teacher presents.

Due to the amount of information to be covered, teachers will not be able to take parent questions on this evening. If you have questions, teachers invite you to drop into the teacher's Office Hours on Wednesday, September 2 from 10:00-11:00 a.m. (via your child's Google Classroom). Teachers will hold this time especially for parents who have questions for their child's teacher either prior to or after their child's Back to School Night.
