    • Students in K5 and their parents will meet with their teacher for 30 minutes on an individual basis. The orientation appointments will be held either on Monday, August 13, or Tuesday, August 14, and will be scheduled in early August.
    • Students in Grades 1-2 and their parents will meet with their teachers in scheduled, small groups on Monday, August 13. Appointment slips will be included in the welcome packet being mailed no later than early July.
