Progress Reports will be emailed home today. This is the last Progress Report for this school year. They will be emailed home around 1:00 pm today. Teachers will be available on their class Zoom from 2:15 – 3:00 pm to answer any questions you may have regarding your child’s report.
EVERYONE ON CAMPUS FOR 2021 – 2022 SCHOOL YEAR
We have been notified that all classes for next school year (2021 – 2022) will be held on campus. We are not planning for any distance learning or zoom classes for the new school year. At this time, we have not been given any guidelines as to any protocols that might still be in place. When that information becomes available, we will let you know.
As the COVID infections are beginning to decrease, we cannot afford to let our guard down. Please adhere to the dismissal times for your child’s grade. There are more students on campus since we returned from Easter Vacation and it is important to still follow all protocols and procedures. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. Late-up fees will be implemented immediately.
