Important Lunch Note

Beginning Monday, May 22nd through the end of the school year, Trinity Academy will not be able to provide any student, who forgot their lunch, with a meal. Please be sure that you have ordered a hot lunch for the last few days of school or that you provide your student with a packed (non-microwavable) lunch.

Also, please note that if you have an outstanding balance related to the “Forgotten Lunch” program, it is the policy of Trinity Academy to hold student report cards until the balance is cleared. If you have any questions about Hot Lunch or your account, contact Jane Currin at jcurrin@trinityacademy.com.

What to expect this summer

A couple of updates regarding items you can expect over the summer.

  • ERB scores will be mailed home in July. The reports are easiest to share with parents via physical mail instead of email and will be mailed sometime after the week of July 4th.
  • Class rosters and teacher assignments for 2017-18 will be shared Friday, August 4th. This is later than in past years. Historically, we enroll Lower School students through July so by waiting to finalize rosters we have flexibility with class placement for new students.
  • Teachers will participate in professional development the week of June 5-9 and will check email regularly that week. Please note that over the summer, they are only expected to check email once a week or to put up an away message if it will be less frequent than that. Most will spend significant chunks of their summer working on plans and units for the following year, but it is refreshing to do so without having to check email as frequently.
  • I will be accessible most of the summer; however, please schedule an appointment if you wish to meet with me. I work off-campus more often in the summer and a drop-in may not find me on campus.
  • A refreshed Lower School handbook will be provided before the start of the school year. This is part of our preparation for next year’s accreditation.
