     Summer School K-4

    Summer School 5th going to Middle School


    Please note that the school calendar has changed. Due to experiencing five snow days this school year, we will now be holding school on Monday, April 2. This day was originally a non-school day during Easter break. By adding Monday, April 2 back to the school calendar, the last day of school will be Friday, May 25, providing there are no additional inclement weather days. This will allow us to end the school year prior to Memorial Day.

    Thank you for your flexibility and partnership.
