Schedule Changes

With the addition of 125 new students to the building, we developed a new schedule that was designed to meet the multiple demands of academic programming, specialist time, lunch/recess, etc which was no small task.  As we have been monitoring traffic flow in the building, and assessing the implementation of the schedule, we have determined some tweaks are needed.  This may impact your child’s daily schedule.  We have been working with staff to make the adjustments and will get into a new routine quickly.  These changes will begin on Thursday, September 21st. read more
