Important School Information

Dear Families,


It is hard to believe it is August already.  It has been so exciting to see so many of our students come to visit the Bookmobile and participate in so many wonderful learning activities this summer. We wanted to share a few reminders to all families as we prepare to return to school this fall.  


"Booked for Summer" is our district-wide reading and learning program for all students Pre-K to 12.  


Students who are entering pre-k to grade 8 are expected to bring their stamped Booked for Summer Passport to school on their first day.  Click here to download and print a copy of the Booked for Summer Passport.  


All students entering grades 9-12 are expected to read and create a journal based on the  Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an American Slave by Frederick Douglass.  Students are expected to bring their journals to school on the first day of school as they will be doing a school wide activity with their journals during the first week of school. Some classes also have additional required readings. Please see our school website and the Booked for Summer website for more information.  

The 2018/19 academic calendar is available online.

  • The first day of school for students in kindergarten through grade 12 is on Wednesday, September 5.

  • The first day of school for all preschool students is on Monday, September 10.

  • Tuesday, September 11 is city primary election day and a professional learning day for teachers: NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS.

Other important dates for the school year are listed on the calendar and highlighted on the district website.


We are looking forward to seeing you back at school in September!
