Things to remember as school gets started in the fall
Buses will be unpredictable for the first couple of weeks as drivers and students get settled into routines, crowded buses get changed and especially on Sept. 6 when K students start!
Parents are allowed in the building on the first two days of school but then we will ask you to let your child make his/her way to class on their own with friends. We will have many staff members in the hallway helping students find their new classrooms. This is a safety precaution.
Please contact the office if you have moved over the summer to everything can be ready for the first day of school.
- If you are new, please come to the Main Office between 8:00 - 12:00 to register your K-4 student. Call for information about PreK
We are very excited to be reinstituting our MONTHLY NEWSLETTER at Park Ave.! Like our School Handbook, the new format will be primarily electronic. Please contact the main office if you would like a hard copy of the newsletter sent home with your child.
