We have taken the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously in our plans for re-opening the school. Our re-opening will consist of new implemented measures to protect the well-being and health of staff and students. The health of our staff and students is of utmost importance to us.

We will offer a blend of online and on campus classes with a reduced size of 5 students per classroom to practice social distancing
