Notice To Academy Parents A recent vandalism incident in the school has made it necessary for us to underscore the importance of supervising your children while you are attending events at the school. We have noted that at times, siblings of students that are involved in extra-curricular and other events at The Academy are present in the hallways of the school without supervision. This can lead to mischief and damage, both accidental and intentional. For the safety and security of the school, and your students, please see that they remain with you when not specifically attending supervised activities. At no time should elementary students be present on school property after school hours without the supervision of a parent. Secondary students may not supervise el- ementary students, including siblings, on school property at any time. Thank you for your cooperation.
