Distance Learning

Thank you for your ongoing patience and support as we work together for the health, safety and well-being of everyone in our school and community.

Also, thank you for picking up your child's learning packet from school. The information in the 2nd grade packet will continue where we left off in our curriculum. Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns.

We will continue to evaluate our situation over the next two weeks and provide updates through email as well as through this blog.
