Back to School Survey As we prepare for the new school year, we would like to hear from our parents. We intend, at this time, to reopen according to our school calendar. The first day of school will be August 17, 2020. If you prefer to keep your child at home, we will provide a virtual option at all of our schools. This will allow your child to receive instruction and stay connected to his/her current school. Take a few moments to complete this brief survey. It will be open until noon on June 26, 2020.
