Enjoy Your Summer!

Please continue to monitor our social media and district website for important information and updates. We wish you a safe, healthy and relaxing summer!

Summer Hours--BUILDING “CLOSED” TO THE PUBLIC

In an effort to keep the staff that will be working in the buildings safe and allow our custodians to do a very deep and thorough cleaning, our offices will be closed to the public until further notice. The building hours are 8:00-11:00 and 12:00-3:00. Due to maintenance and vacations, there will be days the office is closed. We encourage you to call or email any of the staff below before coming so that we can be sure someone is available and on site to meet you outside. Don't hesitate to contact us at 614-548-1700.
