Skylert: Back-to-School Night, Registration Reminder

Only two weeks to go!

Teachers are back in the building, and we are excited to work on bringing all of you back to school in the safest way possible. Here are this week’s highlights:

  • Memory books still haven’t shipped. Still no update from Lifetouch, and it’s realistically looking like we’ll be getting those out to students while they are at school.
  • ERMS Registration in Skyward is now open. Read this post and visit our registration page for more information. You’ll also find information there about joining our school community council and PTSA student ambassadors. Student government elections will be held after school gets underway.
  • Back-to-School Night will be virtual, and open longer than just one night. We’ll send out the link as a Skylert, but you’ll be able to see brief videos from teachers, staff, and processes at the school all in one place. We won’t launch it until after schedules are finalized so that you know which teachers to virtually visit.
  • Here’s a recap of the major points from last week:
    • The start of school has been delayed a week for students
      • August 24th for 7th graders (half day)
      • August 25th for 8th & 9th graders (7th graders come this day as well)
      • If you would like to request busing and are not currently in an area where busing is provided, you must contact the school to request a space available permit by August 14th
    • The district plan can be found here. The most important points are:
      • Students can learn completely online, partly online, or in-person
        • Requests for online and partial schedules were due July 31st
        • If you are coming in-person only, you did not need to request anything or fill out the form
      • Fridays will be for intervention, enrichment, planning, etc. Students will be able to come in-person between 9:50 am – 12:30 pm (likely by appointment) to work with teachers in small groups. Virtual appointments can also be made in the afternoon between 1:00 pm -2:50 pm.
      • School will be in-person M-Th
  • We will be releasing a summary of school-specific COVID-related assurances soon. All school plans will fit within state and district guidelines, but will offer more specifics. With teachers back in the building, more of the answers are starting to crystalize.
  • We have a new website (same address) with much more of this information in much greater detail.

Thank you for all of your questions so far. If you want to send us a question, just reply to this email or send it to and we’ll get you an answer. We have also started a FAQ page on the website for common questions and answers. Don’t see a question you need, just submit it and we’ll find out. 

For now, start setting your alarm clocks a bit earlier each day to condition out the summer sleep-ins. See you soon!
