We look forward to seeing you all on the first day of school, Monday August 31. To make the beginning of the school year go as smoothly as possible, please review the Re-opening Plan posted below. Some details follow as reminders:

Start time – students should arrive at the school between 7:40 and 7:50 am. The first class will start at 7:55.

Temperature scan – all staff and students will have a daily temperature scan before entering the school.

Building entry

  • Students riding full size buses will have their temperature scanned before boarding the bus, and enter the school through the cohort-specific entries as stated in the Re-opening Plan.
  • All others will report to the main Academy Entry, on the east side of the building near the Chapel, have their temperature scanned, and then come in through the main Academy Entry.

Masks – please bring your own mask on the first day of school. You will receive your school-issued mask at the school on the first day.
