"Straight From The Lions Mouth"

September 12, 2020

Dear Families,

Another week of preparation for the official reopening of schools ended, and we are really excited to kick off this school year this upcoming Tuesday, September 15th, 2020.

Yesterday, Friday September 11th, we held our 1st of the 2 days of Meet and Greet and K screening. Aside from a drizzly weather at one point in the morning, things ran smoothly and successfully thanks for the collaboration of our families and the hard work of our teachers and staff.

We look forward to seeing the families scheduled for Monday, for our 2nd and final day of meeting with families. Some details for Monday include: Staff will be parked at the back of the school so families can pull up the driveway and find a spot to the left of the parking lot. Please be prompt to your appointment, and we kindly ask that as soon as your appoint is over that you leave our campus to provide parking spots for the next families.

We request that everyone follows social distancing and masks rules and if it all possible, have only one parent during the appointment.

I'm proud to illustrate some of our moments together since last school year.
