Just a reminder on illness from our Handbook:
Before returning to School, your child should be fever free and vomit free for 24 hours and, if given an antibiotic, have been taking it for 24 hours. In the case of a contagious illness, the School does require a doctor's certificate verifying that the child is in good health and able to return to school.
FROM THE ADMISSION OFFICE
Re-enrollment contracts will be mailed to all current families in late February. We ask that families sign and return contracts no later than March 15. Your compliance with this schedule will allow us the ability to admit new families based on available spaces in certain grades and financial resources to support additional Financial Assistance applications.
