Dear Parents,

In these strange times, we know it is difficult. In order to help families look ahead, we are planning on running with the current schedule through the first week of February. Another Board meeting will take place next month and the administration will reconsider where the County is at as far as health metrics. We miss our students who remain home, but we understand that parents are making the best decision for their families.
