Principal Update August 19,2017

Reported by on 8/20/17

Welcome back to the first week of School! We are so excited and can't wait to meet and/or see all of the students this week.


For all families, we need to know how your student will be dismissed on the very first day of school. Please complete this DISMISSAL FORM for our use. We will also have hard copies at Meet-n-Greet for all families to complete. We appreciate your immediate response to this information.


At this time, our office hours have returned to normal hours. We are open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm. Please do come by to finish up any last minute registration paperwork, hand in physicals, pay fees, etc. There will surely be long lines for the Office on Meet-n-Greet or worse yet, the first day of school!


Please know that the IPSD 204 made some updates to the Home Access Center (HAC). Because of these updates, HAC has a new URL. Please save this link to your favorites for easy access.


All families who have completed the registration process are able to access their child's classroom assignments through the Home Access Center (HAC) at this ime. In order to see the teacher's names, you would have to have completed the following:

You need to access Home Access Center to update your child's information online.
Families who received a pink verification letter would need to verify residency. A letter was sent via US Post Office to indicate if you need to do this step.
If you have a lease that expires prior to the first day of school (August 23, 2017), we will need a new copy of the lease. This is for all leased properties, even if you received a letter that your address was verified.
For our new families and those who forgot how to access the Home Access Center, click here. You will have to remember your username and password to get into HAC.

If you need help or have questions in completing any of the registration process, please contact Mrs. Minch or Mrs. Yep. They would be excited to assist you!


The first full day of school for Kindergarten will be Friday, August 25th. On Thursday, August 24th, parents are asked to come to an 45 minute orientation with their student. The available appointment times will be at 9:30am, 10:30am, 1:00pm or 2:00pm. Please use the links below to schedule your appointment time.
