Back to School

Welcome to the 2020-21 school year! The beginning of this school year is like no other. We all have a lot to learn, and below is some helpful information to get you started.
 

We can't wait to see you online for the first day of school on September 8. All classes will be held virtually at the beginning, and we will reevaluate as the fall progresses. In the meantime, there's a lot you need to know to get ready for the first day. Below you'll find a back-to-school checklist, information about laptops and hotspots, and where to find meals. Check back often because we'll continue to update this page.

Back to School Checklist

Get ready for the new school year by making sure you finish the list of tasks below. Be present on the first day of school and maintain good attendance throughout the school year. Good attendance means better grades and more achievement.

Attendance
Visit our attendance webpage to get informed about the rules for attending class in a virtual environment.


Calendar
Check your schedule. Most schools start September 8, but a few start on different dates. Visit the calendar page and scroll to the bottom to see if your school has an alternative date listed for the first day of school.

Pro tip: The calendar at the top of this page also lists districtwide events and important dates throughout the school year - like the end of each quarter and scheduled days off. Click on the "Subscribe to..." link underneath the calendar to merge the school schedule with your own calendar, so you'll never miss an event or update. 

Shots
Get vaccination records from your doctor. All students are required to have certain immunizations (also known as vaccinations or shots) to attend school. Visit the immunization page to download the Immunization Record Form and to find out more information about requirements. 

Times
Check the bell schedule and be there when it rings. Bell schedules are displayed at the top of each individual school profile page. Some schools have different bell schedules depending on the grade of the student, so be sure to double check the time of your opening and closing bell.

Uniforms
Uniforms are not required to attend school during the virtual learning period. Further updates will be provided regarding in-person learning opportunities.

Parent Portal
Be sure you're receiving phone calls, text, and emails from your school by setting up a Parent Portal account.

Password Reset
For Google Classroom, students will need to login. You will need your student ID number and a password. If you need to reset your password, please contact your teacher.

Athletics
Updates coming soon.

Field Trips
School sponsored field trips are suspended until further notice.

School Supply Lists
City Schools do not have general supply lists, as schools may have unique requirements. Schools will inform students of any necessary supplies at the start of the school year.Family Support and Resources
