Due to exciting new summer changes, some of our students will see minor adjustments to their schedule. In an effort to keep our Parent Orientation running on time, we will be emailing updated student schedules to all parents on Monday, July 26th.

All students will be visiting their classes and following the tour schedule below. Please make sure that your student has their updated schedule with them!
