Cavalier Caller (Parent Edition)
Volume 22 - January 6th
I am truly at a loss for words. This time last year, I would have never guessed that our lives would be turned upside down. The impact of Covid on our school district cannot be denied. Everyone's world has been turned upside down, but the good news is that we get to have school again this semester.
Our students are developing new skills to navigate online learning and our staff members are adjusting our practices to account for in-person and remote learners. Despite these challenges, we are refusing to make "Another One bites the Dust" our theme song for this semester. We are looking forward to the Spring Semster.
