Please also be award, that with this extended Spring Break we plan to change our calendar and be in attendance Friday, April 10, 2020, and Monday, April 13, 2020. 

Teachers are working Monday to provide online or paper lessons. Teachers will be working to contact students to make sure they have Internet access, if not, we will send packets home this week. We are also working on trying to do weekly food packets at different locations. Please check our website for location of food and additional information from the school. We will try to send out Robo calls and Facebook posts to keep students and parents informed. 

Please continue to follow CDC guidelines for illnesses so you will be healthy to return in April.
