Return to FAQs Home
Where can I find the academic calendar for the year?
The MIS calendar is shared through our communications portal, Join Our Class. Your view will include events, activities and school closures related to all students as well as those specific to your child in his/her classroom. The general school year calendar, highlighting priority dates is available to the general public on our Parent Resources page.
Can I get a personalized feed of MIS events embedded in my personal calendar?
How do I sign up to volunteer or see details about upcoming events at the school?
How do I sign my child up for after school care or camps (day, fall break, spring break, summer camps, etc.) for days and times when I’m working?
What are the hours for student attendance on regular school days?
Primary School – 8:10 AM to 3:20 PM
