This past week our One-Call Communication System was in full use to provide families the necessary school cancellation information. School decisions, like the one made this week, are based on multiple reliable sources. If possible we will attempt to make the decision as early as possible to allow families time to make necessary arrangements. Our primary focus remains the safety of our students and staff. The last school day for this academic year is now Tuesday, June 18, 2019.
