Parents we are moving dismissal to 11:30 am due to storm damage. We still do not have electricity in many areas, internet, phones, and AC. please do not arrive early we can’t accommodate an early rush of parents due to limitations. Busses will run as normal. I apologize for the inconvenience.
Parents, the phone system is currently down due to last night’s storm. It is currently being worked on. If you need to make contact with the school you will need to come to the k-4 or 5-8 office. Sorry for the inconvenience.
