Due to circumstances caused by the community spread of COVID-19, the District made changes to students schedules (see blow). Announced earlier this week, these changes were not made lightly as we realize the adjustments families must make. Still, we can’t express enough that student and staff safety remains the driving force behind all calendar decisions.
