COVID-19 Update

We are dealing with a very unique situation, one that is constantly in changing and we are doing our very best to plan and adjust as needed.

The health and well-being of all is a top priority, and we will follow all the best and latest information and recommendations, such as social distancing, hand washing, not touching your face, covering your cough or sneeze, and avoiding large crowds.

Over a week ago, we began to make plans for if/when face to face instruction would be canceled. Lessons, research papers, projects, packets, and other creative assignments have been developed and communicated to your children. Teachers will be available for any questions you may have via email or by calling your school site.
