We are about to make another transition with our learning programming. I understand that you might be a little confused but we are working to make things as understandable as possible. Reach out if you have questions!
If your family is experiencing concerns dealing with anything, please reach out. Our lives can be difficult under normal circumstances and with all that is happening now, many more families are experiencing concerns. The school is here to support families in the best way that we can so please don't hesitate to contact us.
Notes from the Office
We salute all our Veterans on Veterans Day. There is much we can learn from their stories about their heroism, commitment, and dedication to preserving the freedoms we cherish in this country. They remind us that every generation has a duty and responsibility to serve our communities and our nation. We thank them for their service.
