A Note From Our Principal,
Summer has come to an end and another school year is upon us. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new families, and a sincere thank you to returning families and those that chose to spend their summer with us. We enjoyed making memories with your children and are looking forward to spending the fall season together. Please review the reminders below carefully so we can make the most of our time together over the next few months. As always, our administrative team is here to answer any questions you may have.
School Parking Lot Reminder
Safety first! Our school parking lot can be a very busy place that is shared by multiple local businesses and residents. With our new safety and health procedures in place, now more than ever we are asking all to PLEASE DRIVE SLOW and use added caution. Children should always have an adult with them in the parking lot.
If your family has any questions about your child’s drop off and pick up schedule, contact the office directly.
Our school does not follow the Boise public school district in school schedule as we are open more days per year. For the 2020-2021 school year the holiday closures that we observe are listed below.
