No School Monday, February 22 - Remote Planning Day

Dear Families,

It is hard to believe we are getting ready to start Trimester 3 of the 2020-21 school year!

March 1 is right around the corner and we are very excited to have the students back to a full day of school. Next week I will share a Return to School newsletter with all the details, procedures and expectations for our full day at school! If you have questions or concerns, at this time, please take a few minutes to complete the form below so I can be sure to address them in the newsletter next week.

Return to Full Day of School Survey

As always, let's continue to work together and do our part to keep our students and staff healthy & safe!
