Infinite Campus Parent Portal opens to access homeroom teacher assignments on August 14 for students in grades 1st through 6th. To access the parent portal, please follow the following guides:

KINDERGARTEN: On August 25, Kindergarten parents will receive communication from the school with teacher assignment and start date information. Half of the kindergarten class will attend on August 29th and 31st (Tuesday/Thursday) and half of the kindergarten class will attend on August 30th and September 1st (Wednesday/Friday). Both groups will join together and attend daily starting on September 5th.

On Monday, August 21, 2022 we will be holding our annual Meet and Greet for families of 1st - 6th grade students. Families will sign up for a specific time between 4:30 pm and 6:00pm. This allows our teachers to spend time with each family as they bring in their supplies. A Meet & Greet sign up will be sent via email once teacher assignments are released. If you ordered school supplies through the PTA, they will be available during Meet & Greet.

Kindergarten Meet & Greet will be held on Monday, August 28th from either 4:30-5:00 or 5:00-5:30 p.m. You will receive more details on August 25th.

If your student is riding the bus, you will learn your bus assignment through the parent portal. Bus assignments will be made in mid-August and we will alert you when they are available. Bus assignments could change up to the night before school starts, so check back often!
