Important Information About New School Year

May 22, 2020

Dear Families,

We are excited to share important information and dates for summer and the new school year. As our city recovers from COVID-19, Friendship has been working hard to prepare options that support great teaching and learning in all settings – online and in-person. We are proud of how our students, families and school staff rose to the challenge this spring and we are planning even better experiences for summer and the new school year.

Friendship plans to begin School Year 2020-21 on August 31, 2020, if in line with public health guidelines at that time. This link below provides important dates as we finish this school year and get ready for the new school year.
