Welcome Back to Read

The staff at Read is so excited to to begin a new year  and see our school family again. Many things will look different and we greatly appreciate your patience as we work to ensure that Read is safe and staffed appropriately for our students. This year will be unlike any other we have known, but your children are in the hands of exceptional educators and we will get through this together.


School Website and Infinite Campus Contact Information

Please check the Read Website frequently for important information, important dates, Read's Family Handbook and more.  

Also, it is very important that all families have the most up to date contact information listed in Infinite Campus. With new visitor protocols and an increase in virtual learning, our school staff relies on this information to ensure you are receiving all the up to date school and classroom information. It is also very important that we can reach you quickly if your student is sick or there is an emergency.



Get to Know You Conferences

In-person GTKY conferences this year have been cancelled. In lieu of in-person conferences, teachers will be preparing videos to introduce themselves to students and families which will be shared by August 26th. These videos will allow the students to see their teacher's face and hear their voice. They will be telling a little bit about themselves and letting you know some things to expect as they prepare to return to school.
