Here we go!

The Class of 2020 enjoyed great weather, kayaking, yoga, volleyball and more at the Freshmen Experience at Camp O-at-Ka.  Click here to see the photo album.

Here are a few other news items and notes for the coming weeks:

As we have done in the past, we will use a modified schedule for the first day of classes on Tuesday, September 6. Freshman should arrive by 7:45 a.m. and grades 10-12 should arrive by 8:45 a.m. Also to ease our transition into the school year we will use an “A” day schedule on both Tuesday, September 6, andWednesday, September 7, and then we will begin to rotate classes with a “C” day on Thursday, September 8.

Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe that the first day of classes is just over a week away! As we gear up for another great year here on Ocean Avenue, we’d like to introduce you to this new weekly format for school news. Every Sunday afternoon throughout the school year, we will send out this newsletter with reminders, news items and calendar details for the coming week. We’ll do our best to keep it short and focused on just what you need to know, but of course for these first few weeks as we return to school there’s a lot to know! Let us know what you think of this format – we’re open to suggestions.
