A NOTE FROM MS. GARCIA

Dear Parents,


Happy New Year! We were happy to see our face to face and connect students.

We hope you all had a nice holiday break and are ready to start out the new year!


Below you will see Diagnostic Testing dates for this month. These tests will guide instruction to ensure your students are successful. Please try to not make appointments on testing dates.


Our remote learning day is January 15th. There will be no live instruction on this day. Students will be responsible for completing their packet of assignments/Schoology work online.


Please review the COVID guidelines in this newsletter in order for all of us to have a safe and healthy spring semester.
