SIGN-UP!! Staggered Entry

SIGN-UP! Staggered Entries Dates for the Fall 2022

On August 30th and 31st we will begin our school year with a staggered entry. YOUR ACTION is required. We request each family SELECT which date is preferable to them. Just like school interview booking, this will be done on a first come first serve basis. Bookings are set to 50% class size capacity for each day.

Grades 1-8 students will be attending on Wednesday or on Thursday. This allows teachers a chance to get to know their students and organize them before the whole class is together. These sessions are FULL day. Your student will be expected from 8:05 - 2:40 on their determined date.

  • Grades 1-8, Please sign up using this link:

***** FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE ***** The quicker you schedule, the more likely your option of choice will be available to you.

KINDERGARTEN will also have staggered entry August 30th and August 31st. Please note, Kindergarten will operate in HALF DAY Sessions. The staggered options which will be assigned to you by Mrs. Spilchak are: Tuesday from 9-11 or 12-2 OR Wednesday 9-11 or 12-2 - Mrs. Spilchak will be reaching out to you via email with your designated staggered time slot. Please watch out for her email (May arrive in your junk mail)
