Hello Parents & Guardians,

Welcome to the 4th Quarter parents! This week we welcomed back 37 students from Virtual Academy to In-Person Learning. It is always a pleasure to see our students, whether they are in person or virtual. We look forward to completing our 4th quarter strong because we are #PANDASTRONG. Please see the additional updates listed below.

Carpool Reminders

Delays may be experienced in carpool in the morning and especially in the afternoon since our In-Person enrollment has been increased. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
