It is almost time for students to report back to school. Open House will be on August 25th from 5:00-7:30. We ask you to attend during the following times, based on the first letter of your family’s last name:
A-G 5:00-5:45
H-M 5:45-6:30
N-S 6:30-7:00
T-Z 7:00-7:30
If the time allotted for your family will not work, you can come at any time during the 5:00-7:30 window. These times are just suggested. There will be Kona Ice available for purchase at Open House. If you know anyone with a school aged child who has not yet enrolled, please have them reach out to us to get enrolled.
The first day of school for grades 1-8 will be Monday, August 29th. Kindergarten students will have a staggered start. Students' last names beginning with A-L will start on Monday, August 29th. Students with the last names beginning with M-Z will start on Tuesday, August 30th. All Kindergarten students will attend together on Wednesday, August 31st. Please confirm your Kindergarten child’s start date with their teacher at Open House.
We will allow parents to walk their students to the classroom for the first week of school. Beginning on Tuesday, September 6th, students will need to walk themselves to class. If you are planning to walk your child in, you will need to park and use the crosswalks so as not to slow down the car line. If you choose to drop off in the car line, we will have plenty of smiling staff available to escort your child to their classroom, if they are nervous or unsure of where to go.
Pre-K Open House will be August 25, from 5:00-7:00. The first day of school for all girls will be September 1st. The first day of school for all boys will be September 2nd. September 6th will be the first day of school for all Pre-K students together.

Supply lists are now posted online for all students. If you are unable to purchase school supplies for your child, please reach out to us at school so that we can connect you with assistance.
If you have a student planning on playing sports this fall, or throughout the year, please make sure that they have an updated physical on file.
Rising 7th grade students will need to have their 7th grade immunizations completed and immunization records provided by the 30th day of school.
Have a great week, Bulldogs!
