Fall 2021 Return: Families, this is our last communication of the 2020-2021 school year, but before we head out for summer, we wanted to remind you of what to expect when we return in the fall. We are planning to return to campus in Full Capacity, which is all students, 5 days a week, full days. We will not offer distance learning in the fall. We don’t yet know what state and county guidelines will be in August in regards to mask wearing and social distancing, but we do know that we will return to our regular bell schedule. As a reminder, start times were 8:15 or 8:30, and dismissal times were 2:45 and 3:15. We will send our next communications in mid July with the official bell schedule as well as details about Meet the Teacher and other important events. Thank you, families, for your support during this incredible unique year! We hope you and your family have a safe and restful summer.
