Bonjour Families,

It was wonderful to welcome students from K-7 this week.  The energy was spectacular and we could not be happier to see children back at school.  A huge thank you to all students, staff, and families for helping to make our orientation days safe.  The students learned a lot about our Covid-19 protocols and routines.  Every year we like to update you with some beginning of the year reminders.  This is not an exhaustive update, as there will be more to come.  Please go to the link below to view:

September 11th Update to Families
