Dress comfortably, bring some healthy snacks, caffeine, water, chocolate and come with a clear mind prepared to learn all about what next year is going to look like from schedules, to planning to instruction.

Everyone will be on campus and face to face, YAY!!!! We will be housing ourselves out of the library since it will just be classroom teachers. SPED, specials, and VAPA all have trainings on their own that are virtual.
