Happy New Year! We can’t wait to spend 2021 with you and your children. Thank you to all who participated in our holiday giving initiative last month. We partner with the Huntersville Fire Department and the Salvation Army Christmas Center and were able to donate 22 toys for children in need. Your generosity is truly appreciated!
Please take a moment to read through the news and reminders and let our administrative team know if you have questions or concerns.

Winter Clothing Reminder
If you’ve not already done so, please send in an extra set of weather appropriate clothes for your child. Students also need to come to school each day with a jacket and dressed warmly enough to play outside for part of the day. We want everyone to be able to participate!
School Closure Reminders
As a reminder, we do not always follow the closure schedule of the local public schools. Our goal is to be open as many days as possible to support our working parents. If we must close for any reason, you will receive a notification via Links 2 Home as soon as the closure is announced. We also post notifications on our website.
For the 2020-2021 school year the days we are closed are:
- Labor Day
- Veteran’s Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Black Friday
- New Year’s Day
- Memorial Day
- President’s Day
- Independence Day
Health and Safety Measures
The health and safety of our children and families is always our highest priority. To mitigate the risks of COVID-19 while children are in our care, we have adopted additional health and safety measures based on CDC guidelines, state and local regulations, and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Visit our school website to learn more information.
For more information please see our Parent Handbook or reach out to a member of our administrative team.
* We are a peanut free school.
* If your child is sick, we will adhere to our sick policy.
* Please make sure to check your child’s cubby and/or mailbox for important information.
