Fall 2020 Information

Our goals in the coming year are to prioritize the health and well-being of our community, and to partner with families to support our students’ learning, and social-emotional development as seamlessly as possible. This year, flexibility and being nimble are of the utmost importance and will be guiding lights during this unprecedented time. 

Although much has changed regarding teaching and learning, our  commitment to the whole child has been — and continues to be — our North Star.
