Overview of the Event
The purpose of Back to School Night is to provide parents with insight into your child’s daily schedule and classroom routines. This is a great opportunity for parents to meet teachers, ask questions, tour classrooms, and learn about a variety of school resources to support your child’s learning throughout the year. We have designed the evening to focus on a parent audience. We encourage students to stay at home so that parents can authentically engage with our staff. Limiting the number of students also helps to accommodate the appropriate volume of people who are occupying our facility and classrooms.
Please plan on coming a few minutes early for parking and to pick up your schedule for the evening. Both front and back lots, including the overflow parking in the north field, will be open. You may also park along East Trilby and Ziegler Roads. Please keep our north and south ovals free of cars to allow for emergency vehicles. We appreciate you parking in the designated areas to keep everyone safe. We also encourage walking, biking, or carpooling to the event!
*See the linked Kinard Event Parking Map for a detailed layout of parking options.
Entry into the Event
We are expecting all parents to enter through the music doors on the south side of the building regardless of where you are parked. This helps to secure our site, as well as provide a common checkpoint for parents to pick up necessary information for the evening.
If you are unable to join us for Back to School Night, you may contact individual teachers for the materials they shared (click here for Kinard Staff Directory).
We hope to see you on Tuesday, August 23rd!
