School Dances

Due to the current situation with COVID, we are not planning any dances or large group indoor activities. This plan will be continually reviewed and when we are allowed to resume dances - we will let you know. Due to the immense effort in preplanning, we will continue to plan for our Prom. If we are not allowed to have Prom, we will address that then.
