We strongly value family and rejuvenation as being good for the soul and an important part of everyone's life. The school closures listed here are designed to provide everyone - the children, parents,and staff- time to spend with loved ones, opportunities for refueling and enriching the spirit, and returning to school with new energy. Everyone needs a vacation sometimes and pre-planning for this allows us to provide the most consistent care possible, avoiding the need for alternate care-givers throughout the year.
