Smiling Under the Mask!

We finally started! The teachers started working Thursday and have already spent 2 days learning everything they can about remote teaching and learning. The next three days for teachers will be spent with even more professional development and planning the start of school.


This is going to be a unique year with a unique start. Please read this newsletter carefully and join me at one of our open houses to learn about the specifics of this year's school start schedule.
