To accommodate the larger student body, we will close C building and open 20+ classrooms in the new A building. The A building is on the same side as the auditorium. B building will also open. All preK to 2nd grade and AP classes will be in B building, using last year’s parking lot and entrance. 3rd grade and above will be in the new A building. The closest parking lot and entrance is the large parking lot outside the auditorium. Please follow the road sign on the school open day.
