For students who ride the bus

If your child rides a bus:

Durham School Services (bus company), would like to inform parents - they are running the routes as if they have ALL students on the bus this week. They are working on accurate drop off times, as they prepare for students to return to school 5 days a week.

Your student's bus may be a little late when being dropped off after school.

Thank you for your understanding.

Young Rembrandts

WE MISS YOU! Young Rembrandts is offering a FREE Live-Online class where you can remember the ‘power of drawing’ we teach in our classes! Drawing is the fundamental skill of all visual arts and it develops skills such as fine motor skills, handwriting readiness and attention to detail. Students learn patience, discipline and focus as well as artistic skills such as vocabulary, expanded creativity, imagination and confidence. Plus, we just have a great time together! We know that online learning is getting ‘old’ these days with schools still in the hybrid plan, but join us for 1 hour of fun this month. See below for information.
