Here is the schedule for the first week. We are spending extra time in homeroom to build community. Let’s Go Phoenix!
Walkthrough registration will take place on the Korematsu Main Quad August 10th, 11th, and 12th, from 9AM – 12PM. Parents and guardians will fill out forms, get necessary materials, and pick up preliminary class schedules. Students are encouraged to attend. This year we will be taking school photos during the walkthrough.
Walkthrough should take approximately 1 ½ hours. If you cannot come at the designated time, try to come at one of the other times. If you will be on vacation, please contact the school office. Our goal is to have all students registered and with textbooks before the first day of school.
