Due to summer construction, in addition to our school year ending early this year (last day May 27th, 2022 at 12:15), we will also be starting school a week later this coming 2022-2023 school year.

Start of the 2022-2023 School Year:
September 7th: Back to School Night

September 12th: 1st Day of High School (ELEM individually scheduled testing day) 
September 13th: 1st Day of Elementary School



We have received many inquiries regarding summer SAC. Due to the scheduled construction at the school this summer, we have been looking into other options. Unfortunately, we couldn't secure an alternate location. Therefore, we are unable to offer summer SAC this year. Thank you for your understanding.
