2014-2015 School Year

The new school year will begin on Thursday, September 4th, 2014. Our new school hours are 8:20am to 2:40pm, Monday through Friday. There is no more extended day program. All children will have the same school hours.

The first two days are half days for kindergarten students only. The exact dismissal time for half days will be emailed when it is confirmed.

Your child’s report card should have the letters A, B, C or D on the back. In late August when classrooms and teachers are no longer subject to change, a key to the letters will be sent out. At that time you will know your child’s classroom and teacher.

Have a wonderful summer!

Thank You Volunteers
