Main building under construction

We look forward to welcoming your children and you back at the school this week. Please be aware of changes in appearance and access points to the main building.

The main entrance is undergoing renovation at this time, but do not worry: We provide safe and easy access through the main entrance for you and your children.

The glass doors of the cafeteria cannot any longer be used to enter the main building. Parents of students in the School Entry Level will drop off and pick up their children at the SEL back door next to the soccer field. Alternatively, parents can access the main building through the main entrance and then take the stairs down to the SEL.

All visitors, parents, and students of the SEL and the Upper School must enter the main building through the main doors only. Please plan accordingly. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
