We saw many students on campus this week for testing and on-site learning. It was great seeing our students in person! We are asking families to send their child(ren) for in-person learning for the remainder of this school year. We welcome students back each day and hope you will consider in-person learning as a viable and safe option. We continue to practice safety protocols and have limited evidence of COVID transmission on campus.
