Distance Learning Feedback: Thank you to more than 200 families who have reached out to our help desk for support during our first 2 weeks of school! Because of our partnership, we were able to troubleshoot issues that may impact other families as well. One trend that we noticed is that families were in need of headphones so their student could hear instruction and improve focus. Click HERE to schedule a time to pick up headphones if your student has this need. Please continue to reach out to our team so we can collaborate on solutions.

Thank you to the teachers for putting together a fantastic night and to all the parents who joined in to learn more about the school year. We are always better together!
