A Note From Our Principal
Summer has come to an end and another school year is upon us. We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our new families, and a sincere thank you to returning families and those that chose to spend their summer with us. We enjoyed making memories with your children and look forward to all the new ones we will make this school year!
We recognize that this is a busy time for many families and are using this month’s school newsletter to include reminders on school closures, communication, security and more. Please read through this newsletter carefully and let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Links 2 Home
If you’re not currently receiving photos and daily reports for your child you can easily change this by downloading the Links 2 Home app on your phone. Just type ‘Links 2 Home’ in the search bar for the Apple App Store or Google PlayStore. After downloading Links 2 Home you can register with the same email address that you used to enroll your child in our school. Links 2 Home also allows you to leave drop-off notes for your child and notify your child’s teacher of absences. If you’re having issues accessing Links 2 Home please let us know.
Our door code changes throughout the year to ensure the safety of our students and staff. A new door code will be in affect on September 9th. You will be given the new code the week prior to prepare. We ask that the door code just be for the parents/guardians. Any individuals authorized to pick up must ring the doorbell and bring their ID for verification at the front desk. We also ask that you do not let anyone “piggyback” in with you unless you know them. Again, it is for your child’s safety that we do not allow “strangers” into the building.
Parent’s Night Out
Want a night to go out on the town or run errands without your little one? Parent’s Night Out is what you need! Once a month on a Friday evening we will offer a fun night with the kiddos while you go out from 6:30pm to 10:30pm. The cost is $25 for the first child, $15 each additional. Spaces are limited so you must pre-pay to reserve your space. Payment is not refundable.
