ORIENTATION

The purpose of the orientation is to provide parents with detailed information about Renaissance Elementary in order to make sure it is the right choice for your student and family.​  If you have attended an orientation within the last two years you do not need to attend another orientation (please email our Registrar, sheila.marino@dcsdk12.org, with your name and orientation year so we can verify your attendance.)
 
This year, all Orientations will be held virtually and will include a guided presentation followed by a question and answer session.  Several questions have been asked during the Virtual Orientations and in the interest of time have been compiled and answered here:  Questions and Answers.
 
Before exiting the Virtual Orientation, you must complete the Confirmation of Attendance Form which completes the open enrollment requirements.
