Important Notes:

Technology (5th, 6th, & New Students)
Please review the district's acceptable use policy and complete the required form in Gateway prior to the Chromebook pick up next week.  Review and complete the student/parent agreement below and have it with you on Tuesday, August 25.  If you have a district issued device that you borrowed in the spring, bring it with you next week as it will be exchanged for a new device.

When you arrive to campus, please use Driveway 1 (near the soccer field) on Ridge Road, which is the northern most entrance closest to Royalton Road.  Please follow the driveway around the back of the school, past the Athletic Entrance and playground area.  Pull to the front of the school where you will either be directed to the right or left of the cement island based on grade.  If your son or daughter is in grades 5 or 6, please pull to the right.  If your son or daughter is in grades 7 or 8, please pull to the left.  If you have children in multiple grades, please pull to the right and use the lane for students in grades 5 and 6.  After you receive your materials, please use exit 2 to leave campus. 

Our 8th grade WEB leaders have put together a few thoughts and words of encouragement for our 5th grade students.  Please click here to view that video.  Additionally, please know that all  5th grade students should receive their WEB phone call by Monday.

Open House
Our remote open house is scheduled on Wednesday, August 26 for students in grades 7 and 8 and on Thursday, August 27 for students in grades 5 and 6.  We will communicate more information about our remote open house structure next week both through a Constant Contact email and a team email.

Soft Opening
Students will be able to access their Google Sites and Classrooms on Friday, August 28 through a remote soft opening.  The purpose of this event is for students to move through their day in an abbreviated version to ensure that they can access Google Sites, Classrooms, Meets, and Zooms.
