Welcome back Owls! Here are the 3 easy steps to make sure you are prepared for the start of the new school year.
Step 1: Starting August 1st, parents/guardians complete required registration forms on Parent Portal. Once completed, you will see who your student’s teacher will be for the coming year.
A: Login with parent/guardian’s username and password

Once all required forms are completed, your student’s teacher will be posted under “Schedule” in the Registration App, emailed to the parent/guardians email that was used to access Parent Portal (with in 48-72 hours), and on your student’s portal schedule.
How is my student’s teacher decided?
Step 2: Plan to attend Meet Your Teacher Open House on

Drop off and Pick Up Reminders
To ensure that our teachers are given the proper time to make final preparations for the day’s lessons, students and parents are not to arrive to school before 8:45am. Students will be invited to head to the back playground area to await the 1st bell at 9am. Teachers will meet their students out back between 9 – 9:05am. School concludes at 3:45pm and we ask that parents do not pick up their student(s) before this time unless it necessary every so often. We strive to maximize the learning time that we have with students and continual tardiness and early pick ups may distract from this goal.
