GREETINGS FROM ORCHARD HILL ELEMENTARY!
SUMMER OFFICE HOURS
Beginning August 13th, the office will be open daily from 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. On August 21st our office will be open from 10 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. to accommodate those that work and need help with online registration. This is the only day we will be open later.
Online registration opens on August 13th. If you are NEW to our school (never attended any school in our district), you will create an account and register as a NEW STUDENT. Returning families will register using their SNAPCODE (enclosed) and prior account login. You will find the Registration Portal at the Phoenix-Talent School District website www.phoenix.k12.or.us. Every family is required to complete this process. We will have computers available for those that don’t have a computer or internet access.
Classroom assignments will be shared with families when they have COMPLETED the online registration process AND returned the enclosed AFTERSCHOOL ITINERARY FORM to the school office. Class lists will also be posted on Tuesday, September 3rd during our Welcome Back Orientation. THE OFFICE WILL NOT GIVE CLASS ASSIGNMENTS BY PHONE.
Kindergarten teachers will contact parents to introduce themselves and arrange a home visit. Kindergarten students will not begin school on September 4th but will have a “soft start” later in the week on either September 5th or September 6th. This can be discussed with the teacher at the home visit.
