Communications on 7/27 from Dr. Binder:

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  You will be getting regular updates from me regarding the opening of school.  Attached to this email is the letter you will get in the mail, along with other important information, in a few weeks.

For the purposes of communication, I use the Blackboard program (often referred to as Parent Link).  As of today, all students should have “rolled” into their 2020-2021 school assignment in Blackboard.  This is the first of many emails you will receive from me if you are a new student to Farnell.  I am sending this to the email account we have on file.  Please help me make sure all parents and students are getting these emails by asking students’ classmates and classmates’ parents if they received this email.

As of now we are not scheduling an Open House.  If we can, I’ll try to schedule one limited to grade 6.  Stay tuned for more information.

Don’t forget to open the attachment!
