We will have 2021-2022 Check-In on Monday, August 2nd. Please be sure to complete Express Check-In, which opens on July 21st, before the first day of school. We want all of our students to be registered, photographed and ready to go when school starts on Monday, August 9, 2021.
Please click HERE to read our communication regarding Check-In, Beginning The Walk, and other important information to ensure that your student is ready to start school on Monday, August 9, 2021.
Online Express Check-In opens on Wednesday, July 21 and must be completed by August 1st prior to attending our in-person check-in on August 2nd. The link for Express Check-In can be found below and will be live at 8:00 a.m on July 21st. We want all of our students to be registered, photographed and ready to go when school starts on Monday, August 9, 2021. Student class schedules will also be available for viewing on Parent Portal (you must log in Parent Portal to view) at this time. This will allow you to see what team your student has been assigned, and know what school supply list to view.
**It is important that you download, print and fill out all of the required forms from Express Check-In to turn in during in-person check-in, otherwise we will have you fill them out when you arrive which will take more time. It is truly our goal to get you through as quickly as possible, and we have streamlined this process accordingly. PLEASE NOTE THAT COURSE FEES HAVE NOT BEEN POSTED IN EXPRESS CHECK-IN. ALL COURSE FEES WILL BE POSTED AT A LATER DATE AND MAY BE PAID THROUGH MY SCHOOL BUCKS.**
Schedule changes will only be made if students are missing a core class, have a gap in their schedule, or have been placed in the wrong level class by mistake. We cannot make schedule or pod changes based on a request for different classes or team as we do not have the flexibility to make changes at this time.
AUGUST 2nd IN-PERSON CHECK-IN
Monday, August 2nd will be our ONLY in-person check-in day. We will not hold a late check-in day if you are unable to come on August 2nd. Students who arrive on the first day of school (August 9th) without Express Check-In completed and forms completed to turn in will be delayed from going to class until this is completed. If circumstances prohibit you from paying fees, please make arrangements with the bookkeeper, Cindy Britton (email@example.com), prior to August 9th. To assist with traffic flow on August 2nd, families are asked to attend during the corresponding session for your last name. *If your assigned session does not work in your schedule, you may come at an alternate time. However, we ask that you try to attend the assigned session as there is no advantage to coming early. Please note that we will be closed from 11:15 am -1:15 pm to allow staff time for lunch, and to tally our numbers from the morning.
