New Student Orientation and Back to School Night

New Student Orientation Information & Dates

New Student Orientations are a required structure for all incoming students to the Kauffman School. At the orientation, you will learn crucial information about the school and its procedures and have the opportunity to meet and hear from multiple school administrators. All New Student Orientations will be virtual. What this will mean is that families will join the orientation online via Zoom, a free video chat software. You will need to have a working laptop or computer with webcam and internet access to join. If you do not currently have this technology available, please follow the directions below.


Orientation Dates / Times Options

You will RSVP for one orientation from the options listed below. Orientations will last approximately 1.5 hours.

  • Friday, July 31st (12:00 PM)
  • Wednesday, August 5th (5:00 PM)

Note: Your student is not required to attend orientation but is encouraged to attend with you.


If You Need Technology Support to Attend an Orientation

If you do not currently have a working laptop or computer or internet connection, you will be able to attend the orientation at the Kauffman School using one of our computers. How this will work:
