Grade Reconfiguration Plan for 2023-24 School Year

a graphic with a purple background shows the schools logo in white, with a yellow oval that reads "Important Information."

There are many logistics to consider for the rollout of the District’s “Grade Reconfiguration Plan” for the 2023-24 school year. Our intent is to share information with our families through ParentSquare as soon as it becomes available so you have adequate time to plan for any changes this might bring to your family’s routines and schedules. After being shared on ParentSquare, all communications will be archived here on this page. You may consider bookmarking this page for easy access.

Have questions? Oftentimes, the best place to start is with your building principal. If  they can’t answer your question, they will point you in the right direction of someone who can.
