Class Placements (Teacher Assignments) Coming!

Stay tuned! Class placements will be emailed home this Wednesday. That email will include contact information for your child's teacher and other details about the start of school and upcoming dates to keep in mind.

What Will School Look Like?

Many families have inquired about what drop off, pick up, and other procedures will look like in the year to come as well. With CDC guidance evolving and the local health departments weighing in as well, I am waiting to give the the most recent updates until we get closer to August 25th. Here are a few things that I can share at this time:

  • School hours for all students (even K) will be from 8:25-3:00.
  • Outside entrance doors will open for students to enter at 8:15. Students will proceed to their classrooms at that time.
  • Students will enter at multiple doors, though there will be some flexibility that did not exist last year. A map will be shared as we get closer to the start of the school year.
  • Car drop off will be in the back of the building with the front circle being reserved for buses.
  • Teachers will have the option for their students to use lockers, though it may phase in as the year progresses.


Dr. Osburn shared additional details with families last week, so please refer back to his email for more information not covered here.

Welcoming New Staff AND Students

We are excited to welcome many new staff members at our Avoca West Crew this year. I will use our social media platforms to share out pics and information about our new staff put a face and some personality to the new names. Stay tuned!


We are also welcoming OVER 30 new 1st-5th grade students and over 60 kindergarten kiddos this year. What a thrill to see our Avoca West family grow so much!
