Return to School Update

The School Board will consider action on current health metrics on January 12. That decision may have an impact on school operations and for those families who chose hybrid instruction.

Current Return Dates:

Teachers - January 12 (now pending)

Students - January 21 (pending School Board meeting on January 12)

Teachers are still providing instruction and our routines will continue as they have since September. Once we receive further direction, we will update the community.
