NEW PARENTS 2023-2024
Welcome to Collinswood
Hello Parents of 2023-2024 Kindergarteners – welcome to Collinswood Language Academy! The PTA wants to get you and your child connected to the school and other parents in the Collinswood Community. We’re here to ease the transition.
First things first
Let’s get signed up for a few things. If you want to get instantly connected to the school and other Collinswood families, these are the tools we recommend.
ConnectEd is weekly email and/or recorded phone message sent out from the Collinswood principal and administrative staff. Parents will be enrolled automatically at the beginning of the school year. If you do not receive the ConnectEd email or recorded phone message, please contact the school office for assistance.
Follow Collinswood (school)
Uniforms are expected for all students enrolled at Collinswood Language Academy except on scheduled non-uniform days or when special permission is granted by administration for Spirit and/or Picture days.
Depending on your Kindergarten teacher, you might need the following apps. More information will be provided during the first week of school.
Communicate directly with your child’s teacher and receive important classroom news and updates (learn more). Your child’s teacher will provide you with a Remind code which you will need in order to connect. This is a stand-alone app for iOS and Android.
Canvas is a web-based learning management system, or LMS (learn more) that Collinswood students use to complete homework and other assignments given by their teachers. This app is primarily used by grades 3-8. Your child’s teacher will provide more information.
You’ll see these logos around Collinswood in the days to come. Here’s what they mean.
