*2/6/19  Note to current families from our Director of Early Childhood
I am reaching out to let you know that we are working through some changes in our registration process. That, combined with an unexpectedly large volume of registrations, means we will have to extend the timeline for sending placement letters to our families. Our intent is to have all placement notification letters to families by February 22. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
