March/April School Newsletter

Posted on March 15, 2022

It is hard to believe that spring break officially starts this Saturday. I’m sure you have heard that no masks will be required to be worn at school after spring break but please wear one if you feel more comfortable doing so.  At risk reports are going home this week.  Please talk to your son/daughter if he/she received one to discuss what work needs to be completed in order to be successful in that course.

We return to school on April 4th (CDAB)

We would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and relaxing spring break.
