Carmen Griffith (food service director) indicated we served 3,500 meals last week. What a great job from our cooks, bus drivers, paras and secretaries for collaborating to make this happen. Thank you!

We are currently contacting all students to help determine needs and wellbeing. If you are a student and have not reached out to a teacher or school personnel, please do so as soon as you can. We are here to help and miss you all.

We ask that students continue to engage in activities and resources provided by teachers. Teachers are working hard to make sure there are adequate materials to continue to move students forward in their education. Thank you to all of the parents/guardians who are working tirelessly to assist your students. We realize these times are not ideal and we will help however we can.

Thank you all for what you are doing in support of our students, staff and communities.

Have a great weekend!
