Student Orientation

Our students will receive their student orientation and a campus tour on their first week of school. This orientation familiarizes new students with the school's facilities, policies, and
procedures. If your student is new to our campus during the school year, your classroom teacher will engage classroom peers to support our new student to ensure that your student feels welcomed into our school community.
