Good evening Elmwood Elementary Families,
Welcome to August! I hope all of you have had a fantastic summer and are ready for the start of the 2019-2020 school year. Speaking of the 2019-2020 school year, here are a few reminders, dates, and information:
Online registration will open Monday, August 5th
The Elementary School Office will be open for those families who wish to register in person on the following dates:
Class lists will be available on Friday, August 9th
Backpack Night is August 13th from 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
The first day of school is August 14th
During the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to have early dismissals every Wednesday at 2:20 PM (this includes the first day of school). While I know there are logistical concerns with the 2:20 PM dismissal, I believe the added time for our staff to collaborate will yield high returns in student growth. We will return to our regular schedule, 8:10 AM - 3:10 PM, on August 15th. The Jr/Sr High dismisses 5 minutes earlier for our older students to help our younger students travel safely home.
I am so thankful to have the opportunity to be a part of our wonderful Elmwood community. I look forward to supporting our students’ learning and having a great school year. If you have any questions regarding the start of the school year, backpack night, or any other concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone (309) 742-4261.
Dimitri Almasi, Elmwood Elementary School Principal
