2014/15 Tour Information
Tours for prospective incoming families take place during November, December, and January. Each tour will visit the kindergarten classrooms, as well as the main areas of the school. There will be a brief Q&A session towards the end of the tour. All tours will begin at 9:00 AM, last approximately 60 to 90 minutes and are limited to 30 people. Tours are for all prospective families, kindergarten through 5th grade. However, since most of the attendees will be parents of incoming kindergarteners, the tours will make a point to visit all of the kindergarten classrooms. If you are interested in seeing another grade level, please let your tour guide know. They will try to accommodate a visit to a classroom at that grade level. Tours are for parents/guardians, though infants in a carrier or backpack are welcome. Please keep in mind that because tours will visit classrooms, we want to be minimally disruptive to their learning environments. We therefore encourage small children to stay at home or at daycare. See below in order to sign up for a tour. If you have any questions, please contact the school office at 451-5900 or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
