Despite our best efforts to enter Gould Cottage on time, we must opt to utilize our contingency plan Aug. 26-30. The excessive rain (the third wettest summer in Savannah in the last 100 years!) has delayed our final site inspection for Gould Cottage to Thursday at the earliest. This makes Monday, Aug. 26 the earliest possible date to receive the certificate of occupancy. With that being said, we will utilize the spacious site of our sister campus in Rincon. In God’s providence, this offers us the perfect opportunity to unite as one school. We remain grateful for His provision. Nevertheless, we recognize the burden this will place on Main Campus families, especially those traveling from the islands. We are working on carpool and shuttle opportunities for islands families. Please let us know if you are driving from the islands and are unable to find and/or coordinate a carpool.
