We appreciate all your trust and support as we are all trying to make the best of the situation we are being challenged with on a daily basis. Parental support, more than ever, is critical to the success of your child.
A Distance Learning Grading Policy was approved by our Board of Directors and sent home on November 2nd. The “Hold Harmless” approach from last Spring is no longer applicable. It is important that students attend class, submit work and earn a grade.
