  • Families - 

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we do our best in navigating this ever changing situation. Classroom suggested materials and remote learning activities are posted on your child’s teacher’s webpage. We understand the stress our families are currently experiencing and want these activities to provide options for families but not to be a burden.

    Please note, these activities are suggested and are being offered as an opportunity to continue to engage in the learning experience from home. These activities are not required and will not be graded. At this time, cultural arts will not have corresponding activities. 

    If you have any questions about these activities, we ask that you email your student's classroom teacher using their school issued email address, which can be found on their teacher webpage.

    The safety and health of our families is our first priority. Please take care and check back frequently for further guidance.
