Dear Families, 

We hope this email finds you and your family safe and well during this stressful and unprecedented time.  On behalf of the Rockport Integrated Preschool, we are reaching out to you to update you on the preschool screenings, originally scheduled for March 25th and 26th of this week.  Due to the school closure as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be holding the screenings.


Please be assured that we will be reaching out to families as soon as we have more information and can share a date and time that the screenings will be rescheduled.  Furthermore, please be assured that we have you on our list for the 2020-2021 school year, and pending the screening process, we look forward to welcoming you to our preschool program.  In the meantime, we hope that you continue to be well and can enjoy this time with your family.
