Welcome Back Message

Greetings Citrus family,


I hope this message finds you happy, healthy, and enjoying the remaining days of your summer vacation.  As we gear up for another GREAT school year, I wanted to share some important information with you.  


Upcoming Events

Back to School Bash- August 19th from 2 pm-4 pm

After last year's success, we will once again open our school to allow families to get to know our campus before the first day, learn about different opportunities to support students at Citrus, and offer families freebies and resources to set everyone up for success this upcoming school year.  We will also have taco plates and ice cream available for purchase.  This event will take place on August 19th from 2 pm-4 pm.  

First Day of School- August 22nd, gates open at 8am
The first day of school is on August 22nd.  School starts at 8:30 am, however, our gates open at 8 am.  Families will be able to walk their son/daughter to class on the first day only.  All students are able to receive a free breakfast which is served from 8 am-8:20 am in our cafeteria.

Teacher Information
We know how excited you and your son/daughter are to find out who their new teacher will be for the upcoming school year!  Please make sure you are able to log into Aeries Parent Portal as teacher information will be available virtually through Parent Portal on August 19th.  We will have staff available at our Back to School Bash to support anyone unable to log in or click here.  Also, if you are already out school shopping and wondering what supplies your son/daughter might need, please refer to our grade level wish lists (this is simply a wish list, these supplies are not required).

Bus Information
If you are interested in receiving transportation for your son/daughter, please visit our website to complete an application online (found under the Family Resource tab).  I encourage you to complete this as soon as possible.

Think Together
We are blessed to have an amazing afterschool program through Think Together that is free to our students.  The program offers some homework assistance and enrichment opportunities and begins after school every day and ends at 6 pm.  All students need to be able to attend for the majority of the program.  Because space is limited, there is a two-step application process.  If you are interested in a spot in our Think Together program for the 2022-2023 school year, please complete this intent to apply form.  After it is completed, someone from Think Together will reach out to you regarding the next steps.  We also have a before and after school daycare option, if you are interested in that please email Heather Young at


Back to School Night- August 30th starting at 5:15 pm

Although teachers will not be available this Friday at our Back to School Bash, you will have an opportunity to meet with them and learn about their expectations for the new school year at our Back to School Night on August 30th from 5:15-6:30 pm.  We will have a short informational meeting in the MPR at 5:15pm and teacher presentations will begin at 5:30pm and 6pm.


As always, if you have any additional questions or I can be of any assistance, feel free to reach out.  I also encourage you to follow us on Instagram (@citrusuusd) for up-to-date information and activities.  I hope you continue to enjoy your summer vacation and look forward to seeing all of you soon.
