Emergency/pick-up contacts in the Family Portal are what the school office will utilize in case of an emergency or pick-up.  If an individual is not listed as a pick-up, the school will not release the student unless a parent notifies the school prior to release.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS:

JULY
4         Happy 4th of July!

AUGUST
24        First Day of School!

  • Summer Camp – After reviewing the current situation and staffing and space needs, we will not offer summer camp this year.   I know a number of families rely on this service, but this decision will allow us to focus on our plans for reopening school for instruction in August.
  • School Uniforms – In response to input from a number of families regarding the updated uniforms that were introduced at the start of the 2019-2020 school year, we will continue to view the 2020-2021 school year as a transition year for the updated uniform.   We know this is a difficult time financially and will make this adjustment.   As we did last year, the only items required by families to purchase would be the updated P.E. gym shirt and P.E. gym shorts.  Although we have some of the older uniforms available for purchase, that stock is limited.  If your current uniform is tattered, stained, ripped or no longer fits properly, you would need to purchase used or new replacements.  We will notify families when used uniforms are available for sale.BOYS EVERY DAY UNIFORM GUIDELINES

    Uniforms with the new school logo can be purchased from Lands’ End (Preferred School Number: 900157769) and Flynn O’Hara.
