Welcome Back!

Hello Parents- Our school is looking freshly scrubbed and shiny...must be time for school to begin! The end of summer always has mixed feelings for me. I love spending some extra time with my childen and the long summer nights, but I also love new beginnings and seeing all of our Greenway students each morning. I have missed them this summer!!!

Teachers report back to school on August 26th where they will be involved in professional development and setting up their classrooms. We will be ready to greet you at 3pm for Lemonade in the Shade next Thursday, August 29th.

What time does school start?

8:05 if your child is eating breakfast

8:10 regular supervision is beginning. Please make sure they do not arrive at school before that time. We do not have supervision. If you are dropping off your child, they must remain in the car until supervision begins.

On the first day of school, you may walk your child to their classroom at 8:00 am.

How will I know my child's teacher?

If you have ParentVu, you will be able to see it on Monday, August 26th. If you are not connected to ParentVu and want to have a login, call the office. We will set you up. If you don't have ParentVu, staff will assist you in finding your class assignment when you arrive.

Please read over the important dates below about first day and kindergarten.
