Getting Ready for Fall

Hello Cedar Cross Cooperative Preschool Families!

The count down begins, and we can't wait! Teachers will return to classrooms the first week of August to start preparing classroom, curriculum, and more! We will have dates for upcoming class Open Houses (Teacher meet and greets), Parent Orientation, and first day of school dates all finalized by August 9th. Please stay tuned! Currently we are patiently waiting for Everett School district to finalize their calendars. We follow Everett Public Schools calendar for Holiday's, Breaks, and Inclement Weather. We do not follow their half days, Teacher work days, or Early release.
