Ready, Set, Let's Start the School Year!

Jul 25, 2019

Today was the last day of Summer School!  The new school year is just around the corner.  I hope you are getting ready for our first day on August 16th.

Our first day of school this year will be a half day.  The first day is a chance for students to get a feel for the school building, their classroom, and meet their classmates.  I know that each of the schools is planning for a great experience for students!

If you have completed registration (all uploads done and confirmed) and are a bus rider, bus passes will be going out in the mail on August 5th.  This should allow ample time for the bus pass to arrive at your home.  If you have not yet completed registration, you have until July 31st in order to get your bus pass prior to the first day of school.

School supply lists are posted on each school's website and are in the stores.  We have, again, tried to ensure the supply list is not excessive, but practical.

I do hope that you all have had some time for family fun this summer and are as excited as I am for the first day of school.  Let's make this 2019-2020 school year amazing!

See you soon!
