Important First Day of School Information

August 13, 2015

While we hope our families are still enjoying a relaxing summer break, we wanted to share some important information and dates to help you plan for your return to school.

  • Middle School boys smile in the Library
The first day of school is Monday, August 31. As in past years, the first two days of school will feature a staggered drop-off/pick-up procedure for students inToddlers, Nursery and Reception. We find our youngest students often need a bit more time to settle into the routine of a new school year, and having a slightly shorter day helps.
Please see the schedule below for more information on the staggered drop-off for Monday, August 31 and Tuesday, September 1.
