Message from the Principal

We hope that you and your family had an enjoyable Thanksgiving break. We know that 2020 has been a challenging year, and at times it may even be hard to be thankful. We would like to thank you for your patience and flexibility in your students education. Thank you for your care in following the schools protocols, wearing masks, and keeping your student home when ill. We are all trying to work together to keep the students and staff safe and healthy. We will continue to strive to foster a positive and supportive learning environment for each and every one of our students.
