Dear Elementary Parents/Guardians,
We hope you are enjoying these relaxing summer days of August. It is with great excitement that we are planning a full day of school for the 2021-2022 school year. Within the next week, you will receive an official “Welcome Back” school communication. Please see below for some important information in regard to the Teacher Meet and Greets, class placements, and important dates.
Class Placement Information
The 2021-2022 school year class placement information for your child will be available in the Genesis portal on Wednesday, August 18, 2021, at 3:00 PM. Next week, you will receive information about required forms that must be completed before you may review your child’s class placement in Genesis. This year, you will find a new consent form pertaining to an important new social emotional learning survey that will enable our professionals to better understand your child and further support their academic, social, and emotional development.
