A Message from Mrs. Nanney

I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for your patience and understanding as we all figure out new ways of "doing school". As a school staff, it is our goal to provide essential instruction in a manner that is both efficient and effective while making the process managable for families. This has been a steep learning curve for most of us, and we are working tirelessly to flatten this curve so that we can make Google Classroom user friendly and the workload expectations reasonable. To that end, our expectation is for all students to focus on the areas of ELA & math (and science/social studies in 4th and 5th grades). All other Google Classrooms are considered optional and extracurricular; activities will continue to be added to PE, music, band, art, STEM, and library, however, all activities are at the discretion of parents and students, and there are no requirements to turn in work.

Thank you for your patience while we continue to revise our process. If you ever have questions or concerns, I welcome your communication as we continue to work together to plan for the best remote instruction for all students.

I wish you continued good health, peace, and harmony.


All spring AIR testing has been canceled for this current school year.
