Back To School Information 2021-22

This is a follow-up message from last week’s welcome message for detailed information regarding back-to-school plans for the first week of school. Before I get into the letter, I would like to take a moment to thank Ms. Vancise, our previous Principal, who worked very hard to make the school look beautiful and to create a welcoming space for everyone. The above artwork has been installed in the hallways, and classroom doors are painted in a beautiful green; all a surprise for the students from Ms. Vancise! I hope our families and students enjoy it when they come to school.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and your children this week. Here are a couple of reminders:
