Welcome Back to the 2021-2022 school year Manchester Panther Families! The first day of school for Grades Kindergarten through five is Tuesday, August 17. The first day for Prekindergarten students is August 23. Registration is open for all students. To help us all prepare for the new school year, we would like to cordially invite all of our families to attend our orientation drop-in on Friday, August 13 anytime between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m. Each classroom teacher will send a postcard to welcome all of our students to their new classrooms.

During our orientation, parents and students will have the opportunity to meet their child’s homeroom teacher, other faculty, and staff members and sign up to be members of our PTA. Parents will receive Parent Portal information, bus route information, school meals information, register for car-rider pick up numbers, and be issued a SSD Chromebook. We are pleased to announce that once again this year, all necessary school supplies will be purchased through our Title I project. The only item not provided is a student backpack.

Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures: Students may be dropped off under the awning in our parent drop-off/pick-up line as early as 6:50 a.m. All students will be offered a free, nutritious breakfast from 6:50- 7:20 a.m. Students must be finished with breakfast and be in their classrooms by 7:30 a.m. to avoid being tardy. Student pick-up begins under the awning at 2:15 p.m. In order to keep all students safe, we ask parents to remain in their cars and use their assigned parent pick-up numbers when picking up students.

Parents are welcome to call or visit our school Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during summer hours for additional information.
