New Parents

New Parent Checklist

We recognize there is a lot to keep in mind when registering your child at the beginning of the school year. This 2019/2020 new parent orientation presentation may also help answer any questions you might have. Below is a set of guidelines you need to follow to ensure your readiness for the beginning of the school year.


August 19, 20, and 21 will be 1/2 days for kindergartners. Pick up will be 11:15 am at the designated pick up spot. Students will eat lunch at school (either home lunch or school lunch). In the afternoons, a 20 minute one-on-one session will be scheduled for each child. Look for a electronic sign up from your teacher after class assignments are released in late May.
