Registration Options-You must select ONE of the four following options below. Note: As of August 1, we have reviewed the New York State guidelines for serving food. Based on current guidelines we do not feel that our teens would be able to socialize in a manner that they would enjoy under the restrictions. We will continue to monitor guidelines in hopes of being able to serve dinner in late fall, early winter and have included the cost of dinners in the fees listed below. We will be scheduling "Zoom dinners" for each grade for the first two months in order to provide teens with a social outlet.
