For an easy way to share this link for the parent handbook, we made it into a post here on the school’s website.

A new school year is near! Information for parents!

We are just days away from the start of the new school year, and here is some information for our families.

  • There will be a parent meeting July 28 with all the information and paperwork you need for the new year. As usual we have a pot luck dinner for the whole family before the meeting where everyone bring a dish enough for 8-10 persons.  The dinner is 6.00-7.00 pm. After the dinner there will be a babysitter available and the meeting is 7.00-8.00 pm. Please fill in all the paperwork and return ASAP.
  • First week of school will be done in a phase in schedule – All week have early dismissal 11.45 am. Monday and Tuesday is for returning students only, Wednesday and Thursday is for new students only and Friday is the first day all class is all together. We have several new students from existing families this year. They will start Wednesday. Remember early dismissal for all children 11.45 am all week!

We look forward to see everyone at school!
