Dear Trail Blazer Families,

We found lots of success the first few weeks with onboarding our families to DLA, benchmark testing, and materials pick up. Our classrooms are up and running as we begin to dive into content. Please help your child to be successful by:

  • providing a quiet and distraction free work space
  • ensuring your child attends school daily - attendance is taken each period
  • ensuring your child is on time to all of their classes as well as stays until class is dismissed
  • reading the weekly blast from your child's teacher

We are here to support all aspects of your child's learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out should you need anything. We are most grateful for your ongoing support.

Wishing you well,

Marlene Capristo
