School will remain closed for in-person instruction through the remainder of this school year. Our teachers will continue to provide instruction through digital and print resources. If your child is completing instruction through digital pathways, there is no need to come on campus to pick up materials. Please continue to communicate with your child’s teacher through Internet, e-mail, phone, and Dojo.
