A Heads Up

I just wanted to give you a heads up that I will be gone both Thursday and Friday this week. I won't be checking my email after Wednesday afternoon. As always, if you have an urgent need, please contact the office for assistance.

Have a safe and happy holidays! I hope that you're able to spend some time with your families and enjoy the long winter break!

Warm Wishes,

Janelle Nordtvedt

Students will need for Friday:

  • A mug (we will be providing hot chocolate)
  • A snack and/or drink for themselves (this is optional)
