IMPORTANT DATES

2020-21 School Year

School Calendar 2020-2021

We are sad to say that due to COVID-19 most of our large events and gatherings have been cancelled for this school year. A few of our events have been re-organized to accommodate smaller groups of people. Thank you for understanding and we hope to continue next school year with ways to connect. Melrose is striving to find other ways to bring school families together in forms of connection. Be sure to gather in small groups outside of school with your class families, when you feel comfortable. All events and activities are subject to change if needed. We hope to add events in the Spring as things change for the better with COVID-19.

Summer Sessions 2021
All Summer sessions will have the hours exactly like the school year. Choose between 9-1 or 9-4. With the option of early drop off at 8:30. Three out of four summer sessions are for 2 weeks at a time and Monday - Friday only. Which means, your child must be enrolled for all 2 weeks of that session. The reasoning for that is to help with the consistency for the children and teachers. Summer is for ALL school students and open to the public. Be sure you are enrolling your child(ren) on time for our summer session. It is first come first serve and once sessions are full your child will be added to the wait-list. Your child’s spot is not saved until you have turned in paperwork. Payments for June sessions are due in May & payments for July sessions are due in June.
