Dear Parents and Students:

Welcome Back! I hope you are as excited for the new school year to begin as I am! As we begin another school year, I want to share my appreciation to all the parents for supporting our students in their education. In addition, I want to express my commitment to increasing the communications to parents and students through our website, facebook page, and the use of PowerSchool. Check out our website or at our facebook page  for updates to our calendar, news feeds, and important notices.

We will continue to be faced with a lot of new challenges this year, and it will require all of us to be creative and flexible. Our district has approved a plan with an emphasis on safety and providing as much face to face instruction as possible. Please check out the plan if you haven’t already.
