PLEASE READ: Weekly Letter

Friday, April 22, 2022

Dear Parents,

Unfortunately, Astrocamp VA has made the decision to close down permanently. They just informed us yesterday of this decision. We are working on an alternative field trip that will take place during the school day on Thursday, May 5th, and will update everyone once we have more details. We are all very disappointed. COVID  had a huge impact on Astrocamp and they have not been able to fill staff positions to safely operate the camp. Stay tuned for more information and details about refunds!

WATER BOTTLES: Please make sure your scholar has a reusable water bottle every day!  Our water fountains are open for refills!  Please help us display our core value of Connections to Nature by reducing the number of single-use plastics we are seeing on our campuses.  Thank you!
