​I would like to thank all the members of my team for the extra effort everyone has put forth to make sure that our students are being safely educated! We have had a few situations lately that have required everyone to be more flexible and to act more quickly than ever before​. Thank you Amanda Morales, Tulullah McKinley, Sam Smith, Turmaine Rice and Ashley Brunette! I love working with you guys!
