Back to School Letter to Parents; 2017-18
Welcome to the start of the 2017-18 school year. We hope the summer was an enjoyable time for you and your family. Each start of school brings changes for the year ahead. Please take a moment to read through a few of these changes in preparation for the start of the school year.
Second Grade: This year second grade students will remain at the Early Childhood Center. By doing so, this will reduce the overcrowding at the Elementary School. As a result, many Elementary teachers have moved grade-levels and many classroom spaces have moved as well.
Early Release Days – NOW Tuesdays: As a district, all early release days are changing from Wednesdays to Tuesdays. The dates for these early release days are:
Tuesday, September 12
Tuesday, October 10
Tuesday, November 7
Tuesday, December 5
Tuesday, January 30
Tuesday, February 27
Tuesday, May 8
Arrival Procedures: Beginning this year, all students in grades 3-6 will go directly to their classroom for breakfast instead of congregating in the gym. Supervision will be available at 7:15 am and school will begin at 7:30 am. However, for the first few days of school, students should report to the gym and teachers will explain the routines and procedures for the rest of the year.
