Celebrating the Constitutional Convention with Class

With George Washington at the helm, the delegates sent by twelve of our thirteen original states labored for four months, debated over the changes needed to create our nation's constitution. Sworn to secrecy, the delegates made crucial compromises and unified their visions to form our amazing national government.

Helping Keep our Community Thriving

With a few weeks of onsite COVID testing behind us, our ability to track and stop the spread of COVID has increased significantly. Mask wearing, hand washing, vaccinations, and weekly COVID testing reduces the opportunities for the virus to spread in our school community. Though diligent following of these protocols may feel inconvenient at times, keeping our families healthy and our school doors open are well worth it.

Dr. Andrews shares her thoughts on the health and safety of our school district in her latest newsletter: Superintendent Andrews' Message.
