Thank you for your patience as we continue navigating new obstacles during the school year.  We are doing our best to stay current with the updated information from public health officials and, in turn, deliver that data to our families. 

Although school looks different than it has in past years, we are confident in the measures put in place to keep our students and staff safe.

For the 2021-22 school year, all students in the Children’s House – Junior High levels will be required to wear masks while inside the building.
