SPECIAL NOTE: There are two Romona classes in quarantine through Sunday/Monday. School rules state that a child who is in a quarantined class should NOT attend the International Festival on Sunday. However, only the child in the affected class needs to quarantine, not the entire family. The rest of the family can come to the festival as long as they show no symptoms. The same rule applies to any child or family member in quarantine- we will miss you on Sunday but will look forward to seeing you at next year’s International Festival! We understand that some families may want/have to cancel their reservation with this information. If you need to cancel your ticket, please email email@example.com immediately so that we are able to plan for appropriate numbers attending on Sunday. The Multicultural Committee wants to keep everyone safe and healthy during this year’s Festival and has worked closely with the administration to maintain the safety protocols in order to hold this popular event this year! Thank you for understanding!
