Parents, Students, and Community,
We recently sent home calendars in a mailing. On the calendars apparently some of the important dates such as Christmas break and Spring Break were not highlighted. We think we had a printer problem. The good news is that we are still having Christmas break and Spring break. We will get new calendars reprinted and send those home at the beginning of the school year in your student packets. We apologize if this calendar has caused any confusion or stress. Believe us, we want those dates to be correct also.
Thank you.
