As our country is facing the COVID 19 Crisis and we transition to virtual school, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate this new way of learning.  We miss each and every one of you and look forward to you returning to campus.

While technology is a normal part of all of our lives, the move to online learning brings many new challenges. The teachers will be providing standards-based instruction, so check your Google Classrooms daily. Make sure to complete your work in a timely manner since you will receive grades in the gradebook.
