Hello Chesterbrook Academy Families!

Welcome again to the 2016-2017 school year! We would first like to thank you for choosing CBA OAKS this year. We are very excited to be back in session and eager to show you what we have planned for this year. During the first weeks of school, your child(ren) experienced what their new classroom is like, and has had the opportunity to slowly get back into the flow of a new school year.

Here are some reminders/updates:

1) All outstanding paperwork is now past due. Miss Ashley at the front desk will be sending emails to those families who still owe forms. Please complete any forms due and return promptly.

School ends at 3:30 p.m, buses depart and aftercare begins for those enrolled. If you need to change your child’s schedule for before or after-care or an early dismissal, please email and copy Ashley.Cussen@nlcinc.com, and Kathleen.McCall@nlcinc.com In this way we can be sure that changes to your child's schedule can be honored.
