All families:

Please join us for our annual Back to School Open House event on Tuesday, August 8th!

At this event, returning students will have the opportunity to pick up their class schedules, prepare their textbooks, and set up lockers.

All students and parents can get a preview of our enrichment course offerings, PSO opportunities, athletics, House program, and more in the gym.

See the schedule below for more detail.

*You will receive an email on August 7th specifying your assigned homeroom. We ask that students be present in the prep building only during their designated grade's time slot to prevent overcrowding in the hallways and ensure the correct homerooms will be open.

Uniform Info

Now is the time to ensure your student's uniform is complete and the right size for the new year!

Please reference the handbook and images on our website for complete information on uniform requirements.
