NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION DAY
FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR ALL NEW STUDENTS (in all grades)
Wednesday, August 19, 2020
8:00 AM – 3:30 PM
Welcome to the 2020-21 Academic Year! This day is treated like a regular school day, 8:00 AM – 3:30 PM, and attendance by all NEW students is expected. A reminder that the school’s doors open at 7:30 AM.
• By the 8:00 AM bell, please report to your Period 1 Class. Academics = A day class. Arts = Tuesday/Thursday class. (You will go to these same classes on Thursday, 8/20.)
• Lunch is provided for you on this day. Vegetarian options will be available. If you prefer or have other dietary restrictions, we encourage you to bring your own lunch.
NOTE: Open lunch is not an option on New Student Orientation Day. Open lunch officially begins on Wednesday 8/20.
• Dancers: Please bring clothes to change into for dancing (not leotard/tights). Instrumental students do not need to bring their instrument on this day. All other students don’t need to do/bring anything special for this day.
• The school day ends at 3:30 PM.
• Remember: We recommend that parents/guardians dropping off students do so on St. Peter Street as there is a safe loading zone in front of the building. There is not a safe unloading/loading area on 5th Street, a major thoroughfare through downtown.
Staff, teachers, and our Senior Ambassador students will always help students find their way to classes.
