Phase 2 Student Placement- AM/PM Cohorts

Dear Parents:

We know that all are eager to learn the AM/PM cohort placement for your child.  Student cohort placements have been completed and now can be accessed through the Aeries Parent Portal.

In order to view your child’s placement, please log into the Aeries Parent Portal.   Once you have logged into the Aeries Parent Portal, please follow these steps:

  • If you don’t recall your password, click “Forgot Password,” and follow the provided steps.
  • Click into your child’s “Demographic” screen;
  • Scroll down to “Scheduling Group” or “Sched Grp.”
  • The codes are as follows:
A = AM
B = PM
V = Year Long Virtual
As previously shared, elementary placement was driven by Dwyer/Sowers Middle School placement, keeping siblings together (at each site and at multiple school sites), and ensuring that classes remained balanced in size, gender, and more.  This was a daunting process and allowed little room for variation.  To this end, we understand that your child’s placement may not be your preference.  However, please remember that our instructional day in a traditional year concludes at about the same time as our PM session.  Additionally, to make one student move, takes moving several students, in multiple classes and sometimes at other school sites.

We thank you for understanding that changes will be extremely difficult to make.Thank you for your cooperation and support as we transition to our AM/PM Hybrid model and eagerly await the return of students to our campus!

If you have any questions, please reach out to Mrs Ashton, Smith Principal,
