    Student Placement (8/10) & Back to School Night Links

    Mission Viejo Families,

    School is starting soon!  To help you (and the rest of your family) prepare for a great school year, here are some things you need to know:

    Teacher Assignment: You will receive an email from your child’s teacher for the 2021-22 school year on Tuesday, 8/10 (between 10am-12noon).  Thank your for your patience.  I know many of you (in grade 1-5) are anxious to find out your child’s teacher!

    Back to School Night: Back to School Night(s) will be held virtually (by grade level) on Thursday, 8/12/21 (grades 3-5) and Friday, 8/13/21 (grades K-2) . The schedule and Zoom link are below:

    This will be a time to hear from your child’s teacher and other school staff.  We will also discuss and answer questions regarding COVID-19 protocols. 

    First Day of School: Like last year, we will have a “staggered start” to the school year.  Your child’s first day of school will depend on their grade level:

    • Monday, August 16thFirst day of school for 3rd, 4th & 5th grade only (kindergarten assessment day)
    • Tuesday, August 17thFirst day of school for 1st & 2nd grade only (kindergarten assessment day)
    • Wednesday, August 18thFirst day of school for Kindergarten and second day of school for all other grades.
      • On this day (Wednesday, 8/18) dismissal will be at 1:45 pm.  Every Wednesday will be an early dismissal day at 1:45 pm.


    Early Release Wednesdays: All elementary schools in the Cherry Creek School District will dismiss at 1:45 pm (one hour early) every Wednesday during the school year. This gives school staff an opportunity to meet/plan and engage in professional learning so we can improve your child’s school experience.

    • If needed, child care for early dismissal on Wednesdays is available for a fee (1:45-6:00 pm).
    • If you are interested in signing up for childcare (before or after school), please contact our Before & After (B & A) daycare director, Zach McCarty (zmccarty@cherrycreekschools.org or 720.886.8024).
