A Note from Mrs. Vlcan

Thank you so much for your flexibility and patience during this uncertain time. This is a quick reminder that students need to make sure they are answering the attendance question of the day on eLearning days in order to be counted present for the school day. Questions will be sent to students no later than 9:00AM and students will have until 9:00PM that evening to complete the questions. Please reach out to your child's teacher if you have any questions about their eLearning assignments. Thank you!
