  • Important Updates from Administration


    Good Afternoon Parents,


    A HUGE thank you to our entire school community for transitioning back to remote learning seamlessly. We know this was a huge undertaking in 24 hours. We also understand that this has been difficult. Parents continue to communicate with your teacher if you are having difficulty with schedules. We can work together to adjust and will demonstrate flexibility, but we just need constant, ongoing communication. Please continue to check the app, website, and your teachers' mode of communication for updates. We will continue to share valuable resources as we receive them and information via our app, website, and  monthly newsletter.


    Have a great weekend,

    Ms. Scarlato and Mrs. Gallo

  • Important Note from the Administration

    Good Morning,

    We wanted to take this opportunity to update our families on one important change beginning today. Students will be taking the books that they are in need of to complete work remotely home on a daily basis. We will begin that process today as an abundance of caution if schools shift to all remote. The COVID cases are rising in the city and the city has a threshold of 3 %. We just want to be ready if we must switch to a full remote situation. Thank you for your support as we navigate these different times together.
