Summit Family Newsletter

April 2021

Happy to have all our students back!

We hope your kids have had a great experience being back to school four days a week! Our teachers and staff have had a great time beginning to build the classroom culture of a new and large community of learners.


We knew traffic would be busier for both morning drop-off and pick-up as we started full return to learn! Thank you for everyone’s patience!


I would encourage you to be mindful of the fact that the school day begins at 7:40am. Students should arrive prior to 7:40am in order to be in class on time! Please try to leave home earlier than normal to make it through the traffic each morning. Currently we have 50-70 students arriving after the tardy bell rings each day.
