Distance Learning Wednesday until end of 2nd trimester

Clarification on change in Trimester 1.  All districts were required to give teachers up to 5 additional planning days for transitions between in-person and distance learning per the Governor's order.  Our staff discussed and it was determined that we needed those days back for the lost days in Trimester 1.   This caused the extension.  We do not anticipate any changes, the 2nd trimester schedule.  The calendar is posted on the website.   Please contact the office with any other questions regarding the requirements that 
we are required to follow per the Governor's orders and the Covid - 19 Pandemic. 


WE ARE VERY EXCITED TO SEE EVERYONE!
