Dear Tyler Parents/Guardians,

I want to share important information regarding the start of the school year.  Please read this letter in its entirety as it contains helpful information to ensure a smooth start to the school year.

Class Placements 

Our team is working hard to complete scheduling and class placements.  As you can imagine, many factors must be considered when placing students.  I anticipate teacher assignments being visible in ParentVUE in approximately one week.  I appreciate your flexibility as that timeline may change.  Additionally, teacher assignments are not final.  Changes may be necessary in order to accommodate updates on Parent Surveys, comply with resolutions, adjust for new registrations, and to follow health and safety measures.

Virtual Meet and Greet 

This year, we will be holding virtual Meet and Greets.  Meet and Greets will take place on Thursday, August 27th.  Zoom links were emailed to parent/guardian email addresses on file. If your email is not accurate, please contact Ms. Nelson at Links will be resent the day prior to ensure new families are able to join.
