Elementary students (K-5) will start school on Wednesday, August 28 to allow parents time to schedule a 30-minute Ready, Set, Go! one-to-one conference with their child’s teacher. Students in grades 6 and 9 will start school on Monday, August 26 to allow them to attend a special orientation day in their new buildings.

2019-20 Parent Year-at-a-Glance Calendar


Ready, Set, Go! Conferences (grades K-5)
August 26 and 27

The purpose of these conferences is to help develop a student-parent-teacher relationship and give teachers and students a chance to read together. Getting to know parents/guardians and their children personally is important to us. Successful beginnings and transitions help prepare the way for successful experiences.

These 30 minute, one-to-one conferences with students, families and their teacher will take place either August 26 or 27 before the school year officially begins. Schools will contact parents via School Messenger and email with specific scheduling information in late July or early August.

The conferences will be scheduled between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. For families with multiple children we will do our best to schedule all conferences consecutively.

We look forward to connecting with families to ensure they have the strongest start possible to the school year. Learn more.

Based on feedback from families, we will not be holding the traditional “Open House” event before elementary school begins. Instead, parents and students will have the opportunity to meet their teacher and drop off school supplies during the Ready. Set, Go! Conferences.
