Return to School Plan: Town Hall Meeting Tuesday 11/17 @ 4:00pm

I would like to invite you to join me as I attend the upcoming town hall led by our COSA Mrs. Mary Melvin.  There she will be discussing the plans “FOR A  SAFE RETURN TO CAMPUS" and the PARENT PROGRAM SELECTION FORM, that you will receive this week.

The Program Selection Form is very important as it will be the information used to document whether you want your children to return to school in a hybrid model or remain virtual only.  Please join us on Tuesday, November 17th at 4:00 to learn more about the plan to return to school, the Program Selection Form, and how to complete it.
