Week 11 Update

Week 11 Update

It has been a great week of CELEBRATIONS!  Congratulations to all our students and we thank them for their perseverance this school year.  It is nice to see all that our students have accomplished.   

Last but not least, we would like to recognize our parents.  Thank you for working with us as we conclude the school year.  As parents, you are our most important partner in your child’s education.  You are your child’s first teacher, and we cannot thank you enough for your efforts to support learning at home during the past nine weeks.  We know the student’s time away from the classroom has not been easy for everyone.  You are awesome and we appreciate you!

Each school will be sending home information about our summer learning opportunities with student report cards.  This is a great way to stay ready for August.  If your child can’t do anything else this summer, have them read.  You can read to them, they can read with you, or they can read by themselves.  It is the most important thing that can be done to support learning this summer.   

We know that there will be questions about the upcoming school year.  Please continue to follow our weekly updates as we will share our plan of action as decisions are made.  We have the same concerns that you do for how we will move forward not only in school but as a larger community.  We are working every day to make the best decisions for our students.  For now, our plan is to welcome students on Wednesday, August 5, 2020.

Administrators, teachers, and staff will be busy this summer preparing for the fall.  They will be attending professional development sessions;  reviewing curriculum pacing, and developing lessons to meet the needs of our students.      

Sports and activities hope to resume a sense of normal beginning on June 1st.  Coaches will be contacting students about upcoming events related to each program.

June 1st -5th Kindergarten Registration – The first step in getting your child registered for kindergarten is to complete this form letting us know your child is eligible for our kindergarten class:  Poplarville Lower Elementary’s Eligible Kindergarteners for the Upcoming 2020-2021 School Year.

Afterward, you will be sent an email confirming and asking you for a little more information before your Active Parent account can be made. Once your Active Parent account is made, you will be provided an individualized code in which to register. 

June 8th Beginning June 8th, parents of returning students that have no internet access or those that need assistance with the online registration process may call the front office of their child’s school to schedule an appointment to complete registration on-site.

Also, Proofs of Residency may be submitted to the schools in person beginning June 8th.

Registration this year will be completed online using our ActiveParent portal and will require the use of a student-specific registration code. If you have not signed up for an ActiveParent Account, please use THIS LINK to sign up for an account. These registration codes will be issued to the guardian when report cards are picked up at the campuses on May 27th-29th. The online registration portal will be opened for parent use on May 27th

Unfortunately, parents that attempted to register their students prior to the official opening of the portal on May 27th will have to re-complete the registration process due to the fact that the student-specific registration code must be used in order to verify guardianship to the ActiveParent account. We apologize for the inconvenience, but student safety is a top priority for our district.

The required registration documents and proofs of residency will be accepted both online during the registration process or in-person after June 8th. 

Required Registration Documents: 

  • Two proofs of residency (New and Returning Students):
    • Filed Homestead Exemption Application form for the student’s primary residence.
