It is Time to Re-Enroll Your Child

Re-enrollment for current families is going strong. The process is not as detailed as it has been in the past, so it should only take you about 5 minutes to complete. During the process, you will be prompted to set up your FACTS payment plan for next year. This step is just to set up when your want your tuition payment to be pulled form your account for next year. If you have questions, please see Mrs. Chollett or Mrs. Flaquer.


The deadline to complete the re-enrollment process is March 1, 2020.


We hope this is not the case, but if your child(ren) will not be re-enrolling with us in Prek4 through 12th grade next year, now is the time to complete the withdrawal process for next year. Please see Mrs. Chollett to obtain a withdrawal form. The deadline to complete and return the withdrawal form is February 21, 2020. Returning the form by this date, will ensure that you do not get charged the Continuous Enrollment Fee. If we do not receive the withdrawal form by the above date, you will be obligated to pay the $250 re-enrollment fee.
