New Learners for 2020-2021

I feel like I start talking about this earlier and earlier every year, but our calls into the school for next school are already increasing so we are getting this information out now. Please go to the website for all information related to next year. If you have a legacy learner, the application can also be found through this main link. If you don't have another learner arriving but have a friend who is interested... please pass this on!

Front Loop Parking Reminder

Please be aware that we have a couple of reserve parking spots in the front loop for learners. These are parking spots that they bid on and paid for at our annual Spring Fling and we need your help to honor that. Please be advised that some learners have early and late release and so an open reserved spot may mean the learner has not arrived to school yet.


Thank you!
