From the Principal

We are excited to welcome everyone back for full days of school starting next Wednesday, April 7th! Having everyone together will be a big and welcome change for all of us and we are planning for this transition thoughtfully. Our first days will focus on building community through a variety of social-emotional learning activities and celebrations. Please see below for logistical information you might need for this transition.
