Welcome back, students, teachers, and parents!

We are excited to kick off the new school year with students on Wednesday, August 31. A couple important changes from last year:

  • All students in grades 3-8 will have 1:1 Chromebooks, with cart-based access to iPads and Macbooks
  • The Responsible Use Policy has been revised! Click here for the 5th-8th grade RUP. The 4th grade RUP is available here; 3rd grade is here; and 1st & 2nd grade is here. We will provide students with paper copies to sign and return to their homeroom teacher or advisor during the first week of school.

And here are a few important dates to note for the school year ahead:

  • UPPER SCHOOL PARENT FALL TECH FORUM: Tuesday, October 18, 8:30-10:00am on campus
