THANKS FOR YOUR FLEXIBILITY!

We appreciate all of you bringing your students to school this Monday. We know the busing situation has been less than ideal these past couple weeks with so many drivers out. But we just wanted to thank you for your flexibility! We appreciate all of you!

PARENT INVOLVEMENT DAY CANCELLED

Because of the current surge of omicron cases, we do not think it would be wise to hold an event with so many students and parents in the building at once, so we are cancelling Parent Involvement Day that was to be held on Saturday, January 22.  We always look forward to being together with you to celebrate your child, to give you a taste of your child’s classroom, and to equip you on your parenting adventure – and we will sincerely miss that! Thanks for your flexibility!
