Back To School NIGHT PRESEntation

Back To School Night 2020 

Welcome to the 2020-2021 academic school year. As always, we will welcome students, parents and families to the new school year on Back to School Night.  This year, the event will be held virtually.


Families and students are asked to view a narrated PowerPoint presentation following this link. This will provide general school information as well as details about the virtual learning environment. You may also find this presentation on the school website and on Schoology.


In addition, we will host live, grade-level sessions on Thursday, September 17th, beginning at 6:00PM on Google Meet. These sessions will be led by grade-level teams and will provide important information as well as an opportunity for Q&A.

To register for the live sessions, you will need to complete the electronic form provided at the end of the Powerpoint presentation (slide 37.) You will receive a Google Meet access code via email prior to the live sessions on Thursday. We look forward to seeing you virtually for the 2020-2021 Overlea High School Back-to-School Night.


Once again, the link to the presentation is here: BTSN Presentation.
