If you are planning to have your child return to on campus learning (Face to Face) and have not already reached out to let us know, please complete this survey by April 15.

FSA Testing

The state issued an Emergency Order regarding state testing. It does not eliminate testing, but lifts some of the pieces that are included in state statute. You can read the Emergency Order here. As we learn more about the application of this Emergency Order, we will keep you posted.

All students must test on campus, even if they are currently Home Connect students.
