Hi 8th grade families.

I know that LT has been sharing information with you throughout the year about the 8th to 9th grade transition process. I wanted to highlight some upcoming events just to make sure these are on your radar. If you have not been receiving email communication from LT about these events please let me (Mr. Hood) know and I will get you connected.

January 26        Initial course placements for your student will be emailed to you along with a Google Form to be used for elective course selection. A hard copy form will be coming home with your student on the 18. Please have this available for reference during the virtual presentation on January 18.

February 3        LT counselors will come to Gurrie in the morning and hold brief meetings with students to finalize elective choices and answer any other scheduling questions. We ask that both the hard copy elective selection form and the Google form be completed prior to the morning of February 3.
February 17      This is the last day for families to make any changes / adjustments to the initial schedule recommendations. Information about how to go about this process will be sent from LT.
