  • Elementary (4-5) will return face to face on Sept. 21st (with 100% virtual still being an option) *Students participating in virtual instruction will remain with the same teacher.


This edition contains very important information that you will need to look at to help prepare for your next steps. Please read it in its entirety.

We need this survey to be completed by this FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4th.

There are also questions regarding transportation preferences and Kids Club.

On September 10 - 11, teachers will have a live check-in time with their classes and post videos and assignments for the day. There will not be LIVE time throughout the day on those days so that teachers have time to prepare their rooms for the return of their students.


We will continue to provide you Up-to-Date information. We are looking forward to having our kids back with us!


Warmest Regards,
