Friday, Aug. 2 – last names M thru Z only – 1pm-3pm 

We would like to welcome you to the start of the 2019-20 school year!

This year, we will be holding Welcome Days, August 1st and August 2nd.
Welcome Days are designed to support families in completing all of the essential paperwork to help kick off a successful year for our students.  On their designated day, parents will move through several “stations” to complete Emergency Medical forms, field trip permission, dismissal information, pay school fees, sign our device agreement and more!  If you have already completed paperwork online (we strongly encourage this) then you will simply go through the stations to be checked off and you can receive homeroom assignment. After you have completed each of these important items, you will finish your journey with your child’s homeroom assignment in hand! Homeroom assignments will be mailed home if you can not attend one of the above dates.

Please note that Welcome Days are for completing paperwork only.  This will not be a time to meet our staff or tour the building.  We will also not have staff available to supervise children, so we recommend that only parents attend.  Families will be able to tour and meet their teacher during our Back-to-School night, August 14th.  Our goal for our Welcome Days is to allow parents to quickly move through each station but to also be available to answer any questions or provide assistance with our online forms.  It would be most helpful if parents complete as much of the online information BEFORE coming to your Welcome Day.  However,  if you are not able to access this information, we will have computers here to assist you.

Station 1 – Cafeteria- End-of-Day Dismissal Form
One of our biggest challenges each day is ensuring the safe and accurate dismissal of all of our students.  The end-of-the-day dismissal form will tell us how your child is to go home from school each day. We ask that you make every attempt to maintain consistency in your student’s daily dismissal to avoid confusion for our staff, and most importantly, your child. We do understand that emergencies arise and special circumstances may occur.  In these situations, please contact our office staff (not your child’s teacher) so we are able to get your child home safely.

Station 2 – Office – OneView Account and Infinite Campus Parent Portal
Both of these may be completed in the comfort of your own home, prior to our Welcome Days.  Parents can access OneView through their Infinite Campus Parent account.  If you already have a OneView account, please login and update student information for this school year.  If you do not already have a OneView parent account, you may create one.  The OneView platform is where you will complete the Emergency Medical Authorization, Student Handbook Acknowledgment, Device Agreement for our one-to-one technology, and the field trip authorization form.  You will not be able to continue to the next station until each of these is complete and verified with our staff. Again, if you have access at home, you may complete these prior to our Welcome Days. If not, we will have computers and staff available to support you, should you have questions.

Infinite Campus Parent Portal –
If you have not already activated your Infinite Campus Parent account, please do so.  The information you provide in Infinite Campus is used to communicate news and information to parents (most often via email) so it is important that all information in Infinite Campus is accurate and up-to-date. This information can be reviewed and updated any time prior to our Welcome Days or any time throughout the year that this information may change. Infinite Campus Parent is also where you will see your student’s grades, attendance and school fee information. School fees may be paid through Infinite Campus, prior to your Welcome Day, to avoid waiting in line! If you do not pay your student fees online or complete a fee waiver/free and reduced lunch form, you will need to pay them before moving on to your final station.  Detailed information regarding Infinite Campus Parent can be viewed here.

We accept cash (exact change), checks (preferred) or credit cards.

Station 3 – Media Center- Homeroom Assignment and Back-to-School Information
This will be your final station where you will receive your student’s homeroom assignment.  Please note that all other stations must be completed and verified by our staff, prior to receiving homeroom assignments.

If you are unable to attend any of the Welcome Days, you may come to the main office on Back-to-School night to complete the information above.

We sincerely want to thank you for working with us to ensure that we have as much information as possible before your child’s first day of school (grades 1-4), August 15th and kindergarten August 21st.

We hope to see you all at our Back-to-School Night, Wednesday, August 14th.

***If you have a friend or neighbor that did not receive this information, please tell them to email fran_berkeybile@plsd.us for a copy and update their Infinite Campus information to receive future information.  Thanks for your help!
