Welcome to Open School for the 2015-16 school year. I am thrilled to start another year at Open School and wholeheartedly cherish the responsibility as principal that you have entrusted to me. I am so lucky to be working amongst such talented, dedicated and committed faculty staff, as well as the amazing families here at Open School. I hope everyone’s summer was adventurous and that you are ready to begin a new and exciting year with us.
The first day of school for all new and returning students will be Tuesday, August 18, 2015. August 18th will be a regular school day. School will begin at 8:05am and end at 2:30pm. On the first day of school all new parents are invited to an orientation meeting at 8:30am in the auditorium. We urge you to attend to find out very important information and to ask questions.
Daily there will be a warning bell at 8:00am, which will let students know that it is time for them to walk to class. 8:05am-2:30pm will be the bell schedule on all regular school days (M,W,Th,F) throughout the entire school year. Beginning, Tuesday, August 25, 2015, the bell schedule will be 8:05am-1:15pm every Tuesday for the remainder of the school year. We will dismiss every Tuesday at 1:15pm for teacher professional development.
We look forward to a successful 2015-16 school year. Our priority is to provide meaningful learning experiences in a safe environment for our students through an innovative, enriching and challenging curriculum. We are proud of our outstanding teachers, and our school community’s involvement and spirit. We count on you, veteran and new parents, to be a part of our team as we continue achieving educational excellence.
