    WHAT TO EXPECT FOR RETURNING FAMILIES:

    For those families returning to Early Childhood, you will receive a letter in June indicating whether your child will be in the morning or afternoon session and the location of the program. Due to current space constraints we will have some satellite programs located at Longfellow Elementary School to begin the new school year. In August, all returning parents/guardians will receive an outreach communication notifying them when they will be able to view their child’s teacher assignment. This information will be accessible to each families ParentVue account.

    A HUGE THANK YOU! Thank you to everyone who made our Educator Appreciation Week so special. We were truly touched beyond words by all of the special ways you made us feel appreciated from the handcrafted gifts from the children to the delicious foods, flowers, cards, and more. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!!
