Parents - We look forward to seeing you next week!

Back to School Night is Tuesday, August 10, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. If you are not comfortable attending due to COVID increases, please know that attendance is optional. Teachers will send important information home with students who do not attend. Masks are optional but strongly encouraged if you are unvaccinated or have not had and recovered from COVID.
The first day for K - 5 is Thursday, August 12. School begins at 8:00 a.m. Doors open and breakfast service begins at 7:30. We dismiss at 1:00.

We are asking that only parents of students new to our building enter with your child on the first day of classes.
Parents - please be flexible as we navigate this new school year. We want to do our best to keep everyone safe and healthy while at the same time returning to a more normal school experience for our students.
Your prayers for a safe and successful school year will be greatly appreciated!
