Letter to Salpointe Families - August 10, 2022

August 10, 2022

Dear Salpointe Families,

We are excited to see our Lancers next week! We have a few reminders and notices to share as you get ready for the first day of school. 

Fire Restoration: Salpointe engaged the services of remediation and restoration professionals to thoroughly clean our classrooms, hallways and HVAC systems for safe occupancy. 

Schedule and Locker Assignments: Check my Pointe on Friday afternoon to see your student’s locker assignment and most up to date schedule, including the location of classes. Unfortunately, the modular classrooms that will temporarily replace the 700 English wing will not be available at the beginning of school, but should be installed by the end of August. We appreciate your patience and understanding!

Locker Volunteers: Thank you to the almost 100 sophomores, juniors and seniors who have volunteered to “give up” their lockers for the first few weeks of school. We’d like to have 140 additional volunteers, if possible. Please fill out and submit this form as soon as possible if your Lancer is willing to help. Once the replacement lockers are delivered and installed, students will be assigned new lockers for the remainder of the school year. Thank you for helping our Lancer community overcome this temporary challenge caused by the fire.

Emergency Contact Information: Please check that parent and student cell phone numbers are updated in myPointe. If we need to share emergency information or instructions, we will use our emergency contact program, ParentSquare, to communicate with parents and students.

School Photos: Freshmen, sophomores and juniors will have school photos taken on Wednesday and Thursday of next week. Students must be in dress code for photos. 

ID Cards: Returning students will receive their 2022-23 ID cards on Tuesday, August 16. New students will receive their ID cards by Thursday, August 18. If new students need to purchase lunch using their MySchoolBucks account before they receive their IDs, they simply provide their name as they check out. For more information on school lunches and how to set up a MySchoolBucks account, click here.
