Back-to-School 2021

Back to School


We hope everyone has a wonderful summer!   

Construction of the new Center for Innovation and renovation of the middle school and upper school classrooms are expected to be completed by Labor Day. Orientations for all MS and US students will be held in-person. MS and US will begin the school year with a combination of in-person, remote, and off-campus classes and learning experiences. ECC and Elementary classes will not be affected by the construction schedule.

Open House Days and Meet Your Teacher Meetings for ECC and Elementary will begin on August 16, 2021.
Orientations for all 6th grade, 9th grade and new CDS Middle School and Upper School students will begin on Monday, August 16, 2021. Orientation for returning CDS Middle School and Upper School students will begin on Tuesday, August 17, 2021. In-person attendance at orientation days is mandatory for all MS and US students.
