Welcome to Coral Park

Dear Coral Park Parents:

Welcome to Coral Park Elementary School.  I am looking forward to meeting all of our new students and seeing our returning students for the 2020-21 school year!  While we are starting off our year differently than any of us had ever imagined, I can assure you that we will work together to make this year a memorable, successful, and positive experience for your child.  

I am sure that you have many questions.  I would like to provide you with some information and "save the dates" to help you navigate through the opening days of the school year.  

Save these dates and links to your calendar!

Monday, August 17th at 9:30 am and 6:30 pm, join us for a "Parent Town Hall--A Virtual Chat with Ms. Pontillo".  This will give you an opportunity to receive information about Coral Park and to ask any questions you may have as we venture into this virtual learning experience together. Look for the email with the Teams link to join one of these meetings.
 
 
Wednesday, August 19th at 8:00 am learning begins! You will receive your log on information from your child's teacher.
 
Thursday, August 20th at 6:00 pm is your child's "Virtual Open House".  Learn more about your teacher's expectations for a successful school year.  You will receive the logon link from your teacher.
 
Friday, August 21st between 8:00 am to 11:00 am or from 2 to 6:00 pm please drive by the school to pick up your child's "virtual learning kits".  The kits will include essential materials prepared by your child's teacher to support their learning.    Staff will bring you the items directly to your car Please be sure to wear a face mask as staff approaches your vehicle and have your child's name clearly displayed on  the dashboard of your car.

Communication is key!  We will utilize a variety of avenues to communicate with you. You will receive emails, phone calls, and text messages from the District's "Parent Link" communication system. Please be sure:
