Calling all my “Conchita” Kids!

I want to thank each one of my former “Conchita” kids.  From the 1st graduating class in Miami in 1973 to today, you have been part of my life, and each one of you owns a piece of my heart and memories.  I would love to see you come back and visit your second home to see how much we have grown and to remember what you are a part of.

We hope we don't have to do this, but if we do need to close school for an emergency, if the Miami-Dade County Schools close due to hurricane or other inclement weather, Conchita Espinosa Academy will also close. We will notify the local radio and television stations. We will reopen when the Miami-Dade County Schools open or you will be notified by a Parents Partnership Association member via our telephone tree. We will also keep you updated via our social media channels.
