Parent/Guardians of current 6th and 7th graders:

On Tuesday, April 20th, a link will be sent to each current 6th and 7th grade students' StudentVUE account which will allow them to indicate their related arts request for next school year. Please review the FORMS link with your child prior to submitting the form. No changes will be allowed once the form is submitted. The form is due by 3pm on Friday, April 23rd. No exceptions or extensions will be permitted. Students must be signed into their Office365 account for the link to open and submit properly.

Please note, students will remain in the same core class level (on grade level, enrichment, or gifted for Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies) unless you are contacted by your child's teacher to discuss a placement change for next school year. Teachers will be contacting parents April 22nd-30th with these recommendations.
