INFORMATION FOR NEW FAMILIES
Where is the school located?

Where should students go on the first day?
- New students:
- Students in grade 4 who are from Roberts Annex should meet along the back wall of the main building across from the basketball courts at 9:00am. A staff member will meet them and bring them to the library.
- New students in grades 1-7 should meet at the front of the school (Bidwell Street entrance) at 9:00am. A staff member will meet them and bring them into the school.
- Returning students: report to their last year’s teacher at 9:00am. Students in grades 1-3 should meet last year’s teacher at their lineup spot from last year. Students in grades 4-7 should report directly to last year's classroom.
Is the first day of school a full day?
The first day of school runs from 9:00 to 10:00am. It is not a full school day and families should plan to wait for their students outside the school at 10:00am. Students will be dismissed to the same location where they were dropped off.
What happens for the rest of the week?
Students in grades 1-7 will attend school for the full day (9:00-3:03). They will need a snack, lunch, and water bottle. Dropoff and pickup locations will be the same as the first day.
When will I find out who my child's teacher is?
Typically, the school assesses students during the first few days of school and assigns them to a teacher and division (class) by the end of the first week. By the beginning of the second week of school, your child will have an assigned division number (class number) and teacher.
