All School Announcements
Thank you for your patience as we work out the kinks with our new bus transportation with The Driver Provider. A new schedule will be distributed next week but please continue to follow the current schedule until you receive an email from us with the new schedule. It is important to have all feedback by end of day Monday so it can be considered for the revised schedule.

Classroom Meeting Videos Posted
Thank you to all the parents who joined us for the required classroom meetings last Thursday. We recognized that not all families would be able to attend, so videos of the various classroom meetings have now been posted on Vimeo. All videos are password-protected (password: journeys). Faculty presented important information at the meetings, so if you were not able to attend the classroom meetings in person, please view the all-school meeting as well as the meeting(s) from the level(s) of your child(ren) at this time. If you have any questions about information presented in the meetings, please contact your child's advisor.
