OCEAN Back to School Night, September 2, from 5-6 pm.


We will be holding the event outdoors next to the OCEAN Classrooms behind Blue Heron. Everyone in attendance will need to wear a mask and remain distanced six feet from other family groups.


There will be a chance to meet the teachers, pick up a back to school packet, complete paperwork, and reconnect as an OCEAN Community.


For families unable to attend or not wishing to gather in large groups the back to school information will be sent out via email after the event.
