THE OFFICIAL POLAR PRESS
February 28, 2021
I hope you're doing well as we enter the last couple days of Trimester 2. Your children should be studying for final tests this Monday and Tuesday before the move into Spring Break. Grades for Tri 2 will be posted the week of March 15.
SAVE THE DATE: Important announcement for seniors, we have confirmed that Prom WILL be held on May 15! Details and locations are being finalized, but we wanted to let you know about the date so you can at least plan for that weekend. Decisions have not been made on whether Prom will be opened up to Juniors as well.
Much information below about ACT testing, spring sports/activities, returning to hybrid, and be sure to check our Black History Month production!
Have a great week!
