From The Principal's Desk August 9, 2020

Greetings!


One week to go and it's Back To School! I hope this SMORE finds you doing well and getting prepped for a great start to the 2020-21 school year.


Grade level teacher assignments were mailed last week. All parents should have receive their post cards with student placements. TEachers will begin calling parents, setting up teh 2020-21 Class Dojo groups and Classes in TEAMS this week.


Open House will be held on Wednesday, August 12th from 12 - 4. The links to log onto your child's teacher's TEAMS site for the Virtual experience will be sent on Tuesday, August 11th. Remember to download the TEAMS app.


IMPORTANT It is important that each parent register for your Infinite Campus Parent Portal Account. Please register as soon as possible. This will be important for access to daily lessons with teachers via your child's Classlink account. All students have a Classlink account and it is a one stop shop for all instructional sessions. Students previously enrolled have access now, this did not change. New students will be provided steps to log on by their teachers during Open House.


Are you registered for your Parent Portal Account? If not, please register. Everything you need as a parent is in the parent portal account. You are able to monitor your student's grades throughout the school year, review your child's schedule, pull report cards, update your contact information, register other students within your household, and so much more! Please click the link provided to register.
