The Owl 7/29/21

Welcome Back to The Owl!

This coming year will indeed be a blend of the “new” normal and the old. No matter what, we strive to make our school engaging, fun, and safe for all of our students!


Your weekly editions of The Owl will continue to be a fundamental source of school information, events, and community updates. Due to the ever-evolving circumstances we so many changes this year, we are a little late on sharing essential “back-to-school prep” information. We will get it to you within the next 2-3 weeks!


MySchool App: Please Complete Your Forms!

If you haven’t already, please complete your student forms as soon as possible! 
Upon logging in, you should see a yellow banner on the top of the screen asking you to please complete your student forms and checklist(s).
Please review and/or complete each of the forms. If you completed the forms last year, you will already see pre-filled information. The forms include:
  • Medical permissions, insurance and doctors
  • Emergency contacts
  • Household contact verification
  • Enrollment Policies Acknowledgement*
  • New families are also asked to upload immunization records, if you have not already done so.
NOTE: Authorized pickups will be added in SchoolPass, our arrival and dismissal app. More information about that – and potential revisions to arrival and dismissal procedures – coming soon!


*If you are a new family, you may have already completed this upon enrollment


School Supplies Lists

Each academic year, students are asked to bring a small list of durable supplies to be kept at school. These are typically items that a student will bring home at the end of the year to be used again.


Please click below to see the school supply lists for 2021-2022:





Please note that most school supplies (such as paper, pencils, notebooks, crayons, etc)  are provided by the school and included in tuition.
School Supplies Lists can also be found under the “Resources” Section on MySchool App.
