RENEWING INTRA-DISTRICT PERMITS
Per District policy, Intra-district permits must be renewed annually. In order to renew your child(ren)’s permit for the coming school year, please complete the attached intra-district permit application and return it to the office or your child's teacher.
Please be sure to check "A renewal of an existing permit" at the top of the application and in the Permit Requested Section, check off "Continuing Enrollment." Additionally, please note that the signature from the principal of the school of residence (home school) is NOT required when renewing a permit.
INTENT TO CONTINUE
With enrollment of new students for the 2022-2023 school year currently underway, it’s important for us to preliminarily establish the number of students continuing with us into the next school year. Last week, your child received the attached Intent to Continue Survey. Please help us by completing it and returning it to your child’s teacher by Friday, March 18.
This survey is solely for planning purposes and your response does not jeopardize your child's ability to continue at 3rd Street. No child will be withdrawn till we receive official notice from a family that their child(ren) has been enrolled elsewhere. Additionally, all current students will automatically be rolled over to the 2022-23 school year.
Should you need to make any updates after March 18, please contact the office and notify them of any change.
PERIODIC COVID TESTING
Our COVID periodic testing this week will take place on Friday, March 11.
