Dear Elementary Parents,

 

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year.  We hope that your family has enjoyed the summer months and your children are eager for the start of school.  During the summer, we have been preparing for a great school year. The campus is receiving a number of facilities improvements and we continue to refine our educational program.

 

Attached to this letter, you will find important dates for the start of school.  You will receive a separate email with additional information about your child’s orientation process for the start of this school year.

 

We are looking forward to welcoming you to a great school year.
