Dear parents and guardians,
With the turning of the calendar to August, we are that much closer to the start of the new school year on Wednesday, August 16.
A reminder for students entering 3rd, 6th or 9th grades of the Mascot Welcome next Friday, August 11. You should have received more information on this event from your building principal. We are looking forward to welcoming those students to their new building and helping them get acclimated prior to the first day of school.
Back in April, we shared that District #7 would be upgrading our student information system from eSchoolPlus to PowerSchool SIS. With this change, we will no longer be using TigerView. Instead, there is a Parent Portal with PowerSchool, which will allow parents/guardians to view important information, such as attendance, grades, class schedule, transportation, and contact information.
Information regarding teachers, buses, and schedules for the 2023-24 school year will be released in PowerSchool and is tentatively scheduled to be released on Friday, August 11. Later next week, we will share directions and details for parents for creating an account in PowerSchool.
Patrick Shelton, Ed.D.
