Parents, you are amazing and we just want to say how much we appreciate you! Thank you for notifying us of symptoms, completing the health checks every morning, and even taking the students to get tested when needed. We are so grateful! Please continue completing the health checks every morning, and notifying us of any symptoms or exposures. Reminder: According to the Allegheny East Conference policy, students with any Covid related symptoms should remain home until we receive proof of a negative Covid-19 test result, or they will be asked to quarantine for 14 days. Teachers will work with you and your children to make up work that is missed due to illnesses.
MAP Testing-September 27
MAP Testing begins September 27! MAP testing is an adaptive, computer based test designed to assess what your student knows. Students will be assessed in three main areas: reading, language, and math. MAP assessments are given in the fall, winter, and spring. The information from the test results provides teachers with a comprehensive look at how our students learn, and how we can best support them this year. Students should expect to test for a few hours each day on their laptops. For more information, please visit the links below.
A reminder that tuition is due the 15th of each month. A late fee of $25 will be applied on September 21st. For now, all payments to the school should be made through CashApp ($Ejapay). Please make the necessary payments so that we can continue to provide for the needs of our school. For questions regarding tuition payments, please contact Mr. Paul. (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The conference needs a final list of students who will be attending Outdoor School. If you haven't turned in the forms, or notified us that your child will be attending, we will assume they will not be attending. You may email the forms to email@example.com, or send them into school with your child. Cash or check payments will be accepted. If you have any questions, or concerns, please contact us.
Photos of the Week
Parents, we need your help! When possible, please send students to school with food that is ready to eat. We ask that students who choose to microwave food should limit their cook times to no longer than 3 minutes. Please remember that there is only one microwave per classroom, and longer cook times cause delays in our lunch schedule. Also, a reminder that all food sent to school needs to be vegetarian, as per our school policy.
Please remember to follow the uniform schedules as outlined below. If you have ordered uniforms, and are still waiting on them to arrive, please be sure to write your child's teacher a note so they can be excused.
Monday - Regular Uniform
Tuesday & Thursday - Gym Uniform
Wednesday - Full Dress Uniform
Friday - Dress Down Uniform
