2019 – 2020 Student Placement - Families who are interested in providing input about their child’s placement for the 2019 – 2020 school year, should submit a letter to the Principal, Assistant Principal or guidance staff by Monday, March 25th. Due to the overwhelming number of requests, staff are not able to meet with families individually regarding placement. As a reminder, we cannot honor requests for specific teachers.
