A message from Ms. Alexander, Principal

Hello, next week is the start of the 2021-22 school year! The staff, Gideon and I could not be more excited to welcome students back. We have spent time together this week preparing for students' return. We will continue to utilize our prioritized curriculum alongside data to support students' academic success while continuing to keep student and staff safety at the forefront.

Please see information below related to cycle days the first week and an update regarding lunches the first week of school. There are some construction delays resulting in the kitchen not being ready. Regular should be back on the menu after the Labor Day break.

Also, I ask that you take a moment to review arrival and dismissal procedures. If you have questions do not hesitate to reach out. We are here to help.

Finally, thank you for your continued support!
