It is hard to believe that we will soon begin the process of placing students in classes for the 2019-20 school year! As a school community, we are very thoughtful about your child’s class placement. We consider his or her program needs, academic performance, and social emotional development. Classroom teachers, along with support staff, work hard to create optimal learning environments across the school. Although placements are not done based on parent requests, we ask that you forward us any particular considerations about your child’s placement in writing no later than Friday, April 5, 2019. (An email to Dr. Keane at firstname.lastname@example.org is preferred.) Please note that this does not include requesting a specific teacher. For planning purposes, requests will not be accepted after April 5th. Student placement letters will be available in late August, following the screening of all new students.
