    Thursday, August 5th: Teacher Meet and Greet 4:00-5:00 PM outdoors Poulakidas playground area. If you have purchased classroom supplies, please bring them with you to this event as we find it is difficult for students to carry supplies the first day of school.

    Monday, August 9th: First Day of School Grades 1-5, Kindergarten screenings begin and will run through August 12th. Students will report to their designated playground location to meet their teacher and be walked into the building. Location will be the same as it was for the Meet and Greet.

    Tuesday, August 10th: Back to School Zoom Meetings with classroom teachers 5:00-6:00 PM. Teachers will Dojo message the Zoom link to their meetings and will provide you specific classroom information at this meeting. Meetings will begin at 5:00 and 5:30 PM to accommodate parents with multiple students.

    Thursday, August 12th: Kindergarten parents notified of teacher assignment via Parent Portal/Connect Ed message.

    Monday, August 16th: First Day of Kindergarten. Students will meet teachers at designated locations, same locations as the Meet and Greet.

    *Please note parents will not be permitted to be on campus before or after school hours. All gates will be unlocked beginning at 9:15 AM on school days. Please use these next few weeks to develop a drop off/pick up plan with your child to ensure a smooth transition. Extra staff will be available the first weeks of school to ensure students know where to meet their teachers.

    *Final determination on masks and other protocols will be made tonight at the School Board meeting. We will be sure to message this information to you prior to the start of school.

    We are excited to get our Wildcat students back in the building and look forward to the work we will all do together this school year. GO Wildcats!



    PTO Membership
