I am so happy to tell you that today we are all busy putting the final touches to the organization and the school. We are so looking forward to seeing the students and excited to begin the year. The library will be open for coffee and tea from 8:55 am to 10:00 am on Monday. I look forward to seeing many of you there.
Here is what the start of the week looks like for all except the kindergarten classes. Kindergarten students will receive a gradual entry schedule from their teacher by email.
9:00 am – Students arrive except for those in Kindergarten.
10:00 am – Students are dismissed.
