Happy Summer Everyone!

​On behalf of the entire staff of Catherine Nichols Gunn School I would like to thank you for your continued support through this past year in keeping our community safe.   I hope everyone has a restful, safe, and happy summer.

Return from Summer Break – Office Open and First Day of School: August 17, 2021

The school will be closed during the summer break, and the office will be open again on August 12th from 8am – 3:45pm.

The first day of school for the 2021-22 school year will be August 17th.  As mentioned before we will be returning to the modified calendar.  For the current school year, we had two entrance times as we managed Covid-19 restrictions.   We know this was challenging for some families, and we thank you for your perseverance and helping us keep the school safe.   Next year we will be having only one entry and exit time, we will maintain our three lunch breaks, and grade teams will have a shared recess time.   The times are as follows:


Monday thru Thursday

Entry Time:                 8:18am

School Start:                8:20am

Lunch 1:                       11:10am – 11:55am

Lunch 2:                      11:55am – 12:40pm

Lunch 3:                      12:40pm – 1:25pm

Dismissal:                    3:04pm



Entry Time:                 8:18am

School Start:               8:20am

Nutrition Break:          10:00am – 10:10am

Dismissal:                   12:05pm

You will be notified of which lunch break your child has after August 12th

Kindergarten Start of School

We are very excited to welcome our new Kindergarten families to the 2021-22 school year.  Mr. Hefler and Mrs. Way will be contacting families when they are back on August 12thregarding your specific schedule, but the general schedule is as follows:

Tuesday, August 17th:  This day is reserved for the teachers to have one on one interviews with parents and children.  This is your opportunity to share everything you know about your child's learning, to ask questions, and to meet the teachers.


Wednesday, August 18th:  Half of the students will attend a full day

Thursday, August 19th: The other half of the students will attend a full day.

Friday, August 20th:  All Students will attend the full day (which is an early dismissal Friday)


We hope you all have a relaxing break, and we look forward to seeing you all in August.
