Thank You and Weekly Updates
We want to thank you for your continued support and flexibility with our schedules over the last week and for future weeks.
As a case in point, please remember that this coming Tuesday is scheduled to be an in-person learning day. This was originally scheduled as a teacher in-service day but was updated earlier this school year. For a link to the updated calendar, please see this link. That being said, we also know that there is the possibility of inclement weather over the next couple of days, so please stay tuned!
As always, please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.

CLUB PICTURE DAY AND 2019-2020 YEARBOOK UPDATE
This coming Tuesday, February 16th is scheduled to be our club picture day.
We are continuing to work with LifeTouch for our 2019-2020 yearbooks. While the Covid-19 pandemic has slowed down their production for various reasons, we are also experiencing some shipping issues. Unfortunately, we have not yet received the yearbooks in an acceptable condition. We hope to get the correct copies in acceptable condition as soon as possible, and we will keep families posted as much as possible.
MOBILE DENTIST UPDATE
Our mobile dentist will now be on campus next week on Thursday, February 18th.
CONFERENCE TIME UPDATE
Conferences that have been rescheduled for March 11th will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Look for conference sign-ups in next week's Weekly Memo!
