In the fall, we are offering on ground preschool in a stable grouping of teachers and children.


We are now accepting masked visitors only in compliance with our governing agencies and encourage unvaccinated adults or adults living with unvaccinated children to plan any visits to our school ten days after travel or with proof of health after a COVID test on the 5th and 7th day after travel.
