Back to School Event
Parents will attend this session WITH their children so that everyone hears the same things at the same time. Children MUST stay with their parents for the duration of the event. Do not send your child to the playground or other areas of the campus. If your child is in Kindergarten, we will have highly qualified staff supervise your child in a nearby location during the curriculum portion of the session so you can concentrate on what is being shared.
Masks? Just like this school year, masks will be optional for this event for adults and children.
In order to reduce the number of people in any given space and help ensure a successful event, we will be holding two sessions and will be asking everyone to attend their specific session. If your child’s last name begins with the letter A-L, you will attend the first session from 4:00 to 4:40 PM. Please note that the doors will remain locked and families will not be able to walk the campus until 4:00. If your child’s last name begins with the letter M-Z, you will attend the second session from 4:50 to 5:30 PM. If you have siblings in different classes, you may attend both sessions. Please note that our time is limited and we really must adhere to the strict schedule.
Please know that our teachers have an extremely difficult job moving classrooms, decorating and organizing their rooms, planning, and making sure that they are 100% prepared for the first day of school. The days prior to school are filled with meetings and essential tasks. Please be gracious and understand that most schools do not require their teachers to prepare for this type of event until weeks into the school year. Therefore, there may be a box still to unpack, bulletin board material to hang, and details to finalize for the weeks ahead. Thank you for your understanding and support!
