Message from the Principal:

Hello ELC Families,

I truly cannot believe that we made it; we are in our last month of school for the 2020/2021 school year! I am so excited to announce that we will be able to have an in-person “graduation” ceremony for our in-person students in our 4-year-old program. Please see updates below for more information about this event. We will also have a virtual graduation for all of our remote students in the 4-year-old program on Tuesday, May 25th. As a reminder, students who have not signed up for the additional school days will have their last day of school on Tuesday, May 25th. For those students that will be attending the extra days, your last day of school will be Thursday, June 10th. In order to prepare for summer break, we will start collecting Chromebooks from all in-person students the week of May 3rd.
