Solomon-Plains Elementary News

Important Information from Mr. Correll, Principal

Happy Summer, 

I hope everyone’s summer vacation is off to a wonderful start! In order for families to be prepared for the next upcoming school year, I’m writing to share some important information with each of you. The much-anticipated end-of-year reports are almost ready to be posted to Skyward Family Access. The final report cards will indicate if your student is promoted to the next grade, if summer school is required for grades 6–8, or if your child will be retained in the current grade level. If your grade 6–8 student requires summer school, a separate letter will be mailed by our guidance department. If you have specific questions once the final report cards are posted, please contact our Solomon Guidance Department. 

Over the summer, my school leadership team has the responsibility of assigning each student to a classroom, homeroom, or schedule for the following year. In order to provide the best education and experience possible, among the many things considered during this process are student abilities, learning styles, boy/girl ratios, teaching styles, and the special needs of students. My school leadership team works collaboratively with specialists, teachers, and others to create rosters for the upcoming school year. 

At the Solomon-Plains Educational Complex, we have a fantastic team of teachers who are ready to support all of our students. I am confident that your child(ren) will thrive in any of their classrooms, as they are all phenomenal at supporting students and their individual needs. Please know that due to the size of our school, staffing movements, and the complexity of the placement process, our school or district does not accept any requests for specific teachers. Also, please know that teacher assignments for 2023–2024 will not be available via your parent account until the end of August. In addition, classroom assignments/homeroom/schedules will not be finalized until the day prior to the start of school. 

 

Special Note for Summer 2024:

Our complex will be getting some much-needed updates again this summer. Therefore, our normal summer hours, Monday–Thursday, 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m., may be interrupted due to the construction occurring. If you are in need of any of the following, I suggest calling the main office prior to coming to the school. Most information can be found on our district website; however, if you need assistance, please use the following emails or phone numbers: 

K-12 Student Registration:

  • To schedule an appointment, contact the building secretary by phone or email.

 

Over the summer, I ask that all families check our homework and read our school's e-mails in their entirety to ensure you have up-to-date information as it is released. At any time you need assistance, don't hesitate to contact the main office during normal summer hours! I wish everyone a very happy, healthy, and safe summer break. I will look forward to hearing about all the fun and exciting learning experiences your families have enjoyed over the summer! 

 

Thank you!

Mr. Correll, Principal
