      We accepted a kindergarten skinner west classical offer.  Any ideas for a timeline when we should hear from them regarding parent information/forms for new students?    The magnet we were offered had already emailed us – we declined Galileo.

      Also any feedback or advice for a new family at skinner west is appreciated!  We are considering utilizing an AM bus for our 5 year old – but seems a little daunting not knowing what happens at the other end when they arrive at school.

      Ty everyone for your time!

      Last year I  know from another family,  Skinner West was late with contacting new students. Good luck

        Ty!   That’s a bit what I was thinking would happen. 🙂   I appreciate confirmation.  Good luck to you too!

      Got an offer at SW for 7th grade classical any feedback? Also what’s the earliest one can drop off at the school?

        We asked this question too for kindergarten drop time.  We were told due to covid this year the drop times were assigned – kindergarten was 8:45am.   Not sure about others.   That said – they told us usually is 8AM at the earliest for all grades.   But they do not know yet for Fall what covid protocols will be in place.

          Thanks, just frustrating for working parents. We are just trying to figure out timing.

            We are considering utilizing a cps bus, in case they do not have the 8am drop for everyone in Fall.  You have to be within a certain range 1.5 to 6?/8? Miles from skinner.   From what I read online – it seems it works well after the first 1-2 weeks – something about getting the route established.  The deadline per cps website to apply for a bus is June 20 – if you want a stop for the first day.  And it seems you can decline service at any time and you can arrange for before or after school or both.

      We accepted skinner classical as well! It is kind of nuts how little information is out there. Any feedback on experiences, teachers, curriculum would be appreciated 🙂

        Awesome! Congrats!  I know it was a relief for us (in some ways) to see the offer from Skinner.  I get the feeling we will be waiting awhile for more information directly from them – although some other posters on here seem to be in the same boat (Decatur families).  🙂

      I have been a Skinner mom for many years. Happy to answer any questions. I believe registration is open on their website.

      Has there been any communication from SW for those who accepted? I haven’t received anything.
