First Week Back! September 14th
From Mr. Hassell and MS. Hart
We ask that students and their families carefully review this newsletter, the student/guardian guidebook (below) and be sure to login to Powerschool Sunday night to view their schedule as some changes may have occurred in the past few days.
We promise to take it slow and allow our students, teachers, and families to have time to figure this all out!
We are happy to be partners with such an amazing school and community and we can't wait to welcome our teachers and staff back to learning in whatever form that looks like! Go Spartans!
