Weekly Update 9/13/17

Announcements 9/13/17

It was good to see everyone back at school today safe and sound and mostly with power. We still have a few students and faculty who do not have electricity back on yet. We are hoping their issues are resolved quickly.

A few important announcements for this week:

* Students will be dismissed at 1:00 on Friday. Middle and high school students will not be served lunch that day and break will be at 9:00 am.

* For the next two weeks students will not be assigned homework. Students will be issued a log to record how they spend their time after school. Please help your child to keep an accurate accounting of this time.
