Soleado Families,

I hope everyone had a good week at school! Next week, all grade levels will be holding their Back to School Nights, virtually. Teachers will be providing you with information on how to log-in and join. Please see the schedule below, under Parent News.

If your child is in the Distance Learning Academy with a teacher from a different elementary school, your teacher will be contacting you directly with Back to School Night information.

Due to the Labor Day Holiday on Monday and the Minimum Day because of Back to School Night, the schedule for instruction for next week is below:

Monday – No School
Tuesday – Full Day of Instruction
Wednesday – Full Day of Instruction (No Early Dismissal)
Thursday – Full Day of Instruction
Friday – Minimum Day (Synchronous Instruction with the Teacher for all students, 8:30-11:15 am.)
