First Day of School
The first day of school for grades 1-6 is Monday, August 19th and we will again be welcoming students through the “Tunnel of Hope”. Students should arrive to school at 8:25 and stand outside on the line that is labeled with their room number. They will be met by their classroom teacher and at the first bell they will enter the building through the main entrance. Parents are invited to line up on both sides of the front sidewalk and help create the “Tunnel of Hope” where students will be clapped in for a new school year.
The first day of school for kindergarten is Monday, August 26th. On a typical school day, all students will line up outside on their classroom line and will be let into the building at 8:25 a.m.
