Welcome Back!


July 12, 2021

Dear Mesquite Families,

We are excited for the new school year to start!! 

The purpose of this letter is to share information about our Welcome Back Night, Tech support sessions, school hours and staggered dismissal.

Welcome Back Night is scheduled for Thursday, July 15th with two 45-minute sessions, 5:30-6:15pm and 6:30-7:15pm. Teachers will present information on grade level curriculum, academic expectations, and classroom routines and procedures. During this time, families will be able to meet their child’s teacher, see their child’s classroom, and ask questions as needed. Please take time to visit our Specialists in the library, Advanced Math teacher in the portable M2, or our Special Ed teachers in building D.

If you are not already familiar with PowerSchool and/or Schoology, information regarding parent login and set up will be available during Welcome Back Night on July 15th in our library from 5:30-7:15pm. We encourage all kindergarten and new families to sign up. PowerSchool and Schoology are used to communicate academic information, teacher and school communication, and school registration.

School begins at 7:45am. Please be aware that students should not be on campus before 7:30am or after 2:15pm (unless participating in a school-related function) as no adult supervision is available. If you will be dropping off or picking up your child from school, we ask that you please do so in the parent pick up/drop off loop located near our marquee for our 2nd-4th graders. 

Kindergarten, first grade, and fifth grade parents will pick up their students in the back dirt parking lot. Signage will help direct traffic. 

Our staggered dismissal starts at 2:00pm for our kindergarteners and first graders. At 2:15pm, 2nd-5th graders are dismissed. If you have children being dismissed at different times, please let your teacher know the plan for your children.

I want you all to know how excited and honored I am to work with you and your child. We look forward to a successful year!
