Valley Elementary School hopes everyone had an amazing summer! We look forward to hearing about your child’s favorite summer highlights!  We are excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year!  We look forward to sharing many amazing days with the students this upcoming school year.  School will be starting on Thursday, August 19th. This will be a full day of school and students will be dismissed at 2:40, with the exception of Kindergarten which will dismiss at 12:50 until September 3rd. Beginning September 7th, Kindergarten will dismiss with the rest of the school at 2:40. Preschool will begin after Labor Day.


Be aware that registration will be starting August 2nd.  Registration will be done online and students will not be allowed to begin school until they are registered.  We have attached instructions on how this will work.  Please remember as you register your student(s) that if you mark any “restrictions” your child’s name will not appear on class pictures or class party lists. We do NOT publish any of the students’ information without your knowledge. Should you need help with registration, we will have Chromebooks available for the registration process.

Back to School Night:

This year we will be holding our Back to School Night on the first day of school, August 19th, at 5:00 pm.

There will be parent-volunteer sign ups, so please think of the days and times you may be available to volunteer. Are you interested in working with students during or after school to share a hobby, sport, dance, art or musical talent with our amazing students? The office will have forms for you to let the school know your interests in working with students of our community in your field of interest and the days and times that work best for you!

There will be Community Council Forms at the school if you are interested in signing up!

We look forward to an amazing 2021-2022 school year as I get to know the students, parents, and individuals that make this community so amazing! I look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday, August 19th.  

Please note that there are several documents included in this packet.  Please return anything that requires a signature to the school office or your child’s classroom teacher.

Looking Forward to Meeting Everyone Soon,

Mary Miles Flanagan

Valley Elementary School Principal
