If you find any evidence of lice or nits, please report it to the school, in addition to close family contacts, in an effort to control an outbreak. Children must stay home from school until they have been treated and all nits and lice are completely gone. Click here to learn more.

Greetings current and future ESA parents. Information regarding the 2015-2016 enrollment and admissions process will be posted soon. Open house events and tours will be scheduled for late fall and early winter, prior to the lottery. Tours are not currently available during the school day as they disrupt instructional time and present a security issue. Please visit our website often and sign up to receive emails regarding the latest enrollment information. Thank you for your interest in Envision Science Academy!

Please visit your child's grade level website often for pertinent information, homework, newsletters, and announcements. You can access the grade level websites by selecting the "Staff" tab, and clicking on your child's grade. At the top of the page, you will see a link directing you to the grade level website. Don't forget to visit the Specialists' website as well to learn more about what your child is doing each week.
