Planning for the 2020-2021 School Year



With the reopening of our preschool on June 1, students and faculty are happy to be learning together and have adjusted quickly to the slightly different rhythm of the days with the health and safety protocols they necessitate. 
 
The success of our preschool reopening lays the groundwork for the safe return of our K-12 students on August 19, 2020. Our 2020-2021 Task Force has developed a carefully considered plan for opening the school year in a way that ensures the best learning environment for our students and prioritizes their safety.
 
We are pleased to provide information to help you and your family feel confident and comfortable with our plans for the year ahead.
