Dear Parents,

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We hope that your family has stayed healthy and safe during these summer months and that your children are as eager as we are for the school year to start. 

This summer, we have been busy planning for an exciting school year, and we are ready and well-prepared to start the year virtually

We will give your child personal attention from the very beginning and ensure they understand the tools they will be using and their schedule. Together with your child, you will meet with their teacher in a personal 25-minute interview next week, where you will get a chance to get to know one another.

Additional important dates for you to keep in mind are listed below. You will receive more information about these events separately.
