NEW!! PANDEMIC PLAN
The safety, health and education of our students are our highest priorities. To that end, we have been monitoring the global health threat posed by the new coronavirus (2019-nCoV), and its associated illness COVID-19. Now, with the possibility of outbreaks in the United States causing community disruptions and potential health-crises, we want to be proactive in informing you of our current plans to prepare and deal with these possibilities. We have outlined a three-part plan for how we as a school community will respond to this potential crisis.
