Administration Corner
As we come to the end of the school year, I want to take this opportunity to invite you out to a few activities....

I understand the rush to get to work and wanting to drop off your child in the quickest way possible, but I’m sure your greatest concern is for safety of your child. Safety is also very important to us. Thank you to all of you who either drop your students off in the back through the drop off/pick up gate or walk your child(ren) up to the front door of the school. Unfortunately, .. ..

Important information you need to know...
Important Billing Information

You should have received your May 2018 statement via email on May 3rd. This is the last billing statement for the 2017-2018 school year and should include most, if not all, of your charges. I just wanted to remind you of the school's policy that no end of year grades, SAT scores, diplomas or records can be released until your account is paid in full.  Please note that accounts become past due after the 15th of the month billed.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding your statement.
