  • Dear Parents and/or Guardians,
    It is so hard to believe that we are now in the second nine weeks of school, and nearing the end of October. We had a very successful first nine weeks of school, and we are most appreciative for your support and your role in your child’s education.
    As you know, we are still operating on a hybrid model for school, with students attending school on A days or B days. We are also continuing to offer a virtual academy. As we make plans for our second semester of school, it is very important to us to gain your input and feedback.
    Please take a moment to complete the survey below in regards to a return for face-to-face instruction during the second semester of school. We ask that you complete the survey by Thursday, November 5th.
    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Thank you in advance for your feedback.
