Summer Tutoring at Legacy

Hello Everyone!
As we all know summer is a time for fun, relaxation and good times. It is also a time when many students lose some of the growth they gained from the year before. Whether you are looking to maintain your child’s skills, get ahead for the next school year, or try and close a gap they may have, summer tutoring may be the answer. I am tutoring all grades for k-8 this summer. I have over 16 years of tutoring experience and I am offering my services for Legacy students and other community members (If you know someone who wants tutoring and does not attend this school please let me know as well). The fee is $40 an hour or if you can assemble a group of two or more (does not need to be the same grade) it is $30 an hour (per child). My schedule is limited to one day a week. Please let me know ASAP of your interest as times fill up fast or any questions you may have.

Inclement Weather During Carpool

In the event of dangerous weather conditions during carpool, we want parents to be aware of the school’s protocol to ensure the safety of our staff and students. In the case of lighting, hail or tornado warnings, we will keep everyone inside the building until the danger passes which will delay carpool. Please remember that we wish to keep your children safe and we ask for your understanding and patience during these times.
