Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions from our School Community

We are eager for the start of a new school year! We’re excited for the opportunities to reconnect with students and engage with families and to reimagine a ‘new normal’ for providing high quality instruction while supporting students’ social-emotional needs. With the start of this new school year, there are many reasons to celebrate and get excited! We know there are also many questions families may have about what to expect this year. To this end, we’ve developed this “Frequently Asked Questions” page for families. Some responses may need to be updated in response to necessary changes to our Health and Safety Plan during the school year. More questions may be added to this list, so be sure to check back periodically this year.
