*No Classes. Sometimes the government changes holidays without advance notice. In general, we follow the decisions of area schools so that our days off correspond with the children of our students and teachers.

** All students are expected to come to the school some time between 8:15 and 12:30 during their registration day. Please send a friend or email the school if you cannot be present.
