Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year. We are so excited to welcome our returning and new families. School begins for grades 1-5 on Tuesday, September 3rd. School begins for kindergarten and pre-kindergarten on Thursday, September 5th. Our hours have changed this year. School hours are now 7:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Students may arrive at 7:10 a.m. for breakfast. If you choose to drive your student to school, use the parking lot in the back of the school on Rose Avenue. Please remember that our doors do not open until 7:10 in the morning, and those who wish to pick up their children must do so by 2:00.
If your address has changed over the summer, please make sure to stop by the office during the week of August 26th to meet with our office staff or call us at 651-293-8795. The transportation department will be sending a postcard in the mail with your bus information in late August.
All emergency forms and other school forms need to be completed on iUpdate. If you need assistance completing the form, you may stop by our office on Monday, August 26th, between 1 and 3. We will have staff available to assist with completing forms.
Students will meet in the gym on the first day of school and be brought to their classrooms by their teachers. I also hope you will join us on Thursday, August 29th, for our Open House. The event will take place from 5-6:30 p.m. and will include food and classroom visits. We will all meet in the gym at 5 p.m.
We are looking forward to a fantastic year! Check out our website for upcoming events, supply lists, staff rosters, etc.: www.spma.spps.org
Thank you for supporting your child and Saint Paul Music Academy.
