School Opening September 6

September 1, 2016 

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I have great news to share. Our new school will be all set to open on Tuesday, Sept. 6 as planned. We received our building occupancy permit today, which was what we needed in order to confirm our opening date.

Teachers and other staff will be busy preparing their classes and the school over the long weekend. We are very excited to welcome all of our students to Auburn Bay School on Tuesday!

Have a wonderful long-weekend. ​


Lori Cullen, Principal
Auburn Bay School
