Upper School News
Hello Upper School Families,

It's a wrap! With teary eyes, we closed our amazing production of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, this past Friday. This team of outstanding students poured their hearts into this classic and poignant production. The play's theme of appreciation for life while we are living it, really hit home at a time of turmoil such as the one we are in.

As you all know, due to COVID-19 we are moving into remote learning starting Tuesday. Below are several links I am sure you will find helpful over the next two weeks. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns, and of course any positive feedback to offer as well! I ask your patience and understanding as we embark into new territory, it may be a bumpy start.

Spring Break
Monday March 30 - Sunday, April 12th: School closed for spring break. The office will be open limited hours during this time, and 3rd quarter grade reports will be e-mailed home during the break. As of now, classes resume Monday, April 13th.


Course Planning
Course planning for next year continues. Parents of current freshmen, sophomores, and juniors, I encourage you to have a dialogue with your students at home as students think about the classes they want and need for next year. Each student should have a sheet for you to sign. Please check with your student's Advisor if they do not have this sheet.


Please see below for important reminders:)
