Today's Updates

Good morning, Garfield families!


Starting today through next Wednesday, you will receive a call from one of our paraprofessionals asking you to complete a survey. The number may come up as unknown or from out-of-state, but it's important to complete this quick survey so we know how to best support you at Garfield. The survey will ask questions related to what technology your children need and what supports you need. This will only take about 5 minutes of your time but will provide us with valuable information so we can have a smooth start to the school year.


Below is additional information about our upcoming Virtual Family Night next Thursday, September 3rd. We hope everyone can make it to learn more about the upcoming school year, our online platforms, what to expect your first week of school, supplies and more. Our Virtual Family Night will use the Zoom platform which can be accessed by phone, tablet or computer. If you want to download this software prior to the event, please click here. If you do not wish to download, not a problem, you can access Zoom from a web browser.


As a reminder, school for all Prek-8th grade students at Garfield will begin virtually on Tuesday, September 8th. All families will receive a letter with your child's remote learning schedule and access codes. We also have open Preschool seats still available! If you have a preschool child or know someone who does, please contact our front office to begin the enrollment process: 216-838-6300. Thank you for your continued support!


Sincerely,


Jacob Bosley

Principal,

Garfield School
