Parents - Notices & Information

School Opening

We welcome back students in September each school year.   Please refer to our school calendar for current year dates and times.


Students in grades 1-5 attend for part of the morning on the first day and will report to their teacher from the previous year.  New students that have already registered in grades 1-5 should report to the office the first day.  Regular classes resume for these students on the second day of school.

Even though it a short time school is in session on the first day, it is important that all students attend to confirm their registration.


New Kindergarten students will have a gradual entry program to start their school year.
