I know this is a time of uncertainty and bittersweet feelings. Some of you were not ready for the school year to end, some of you may be glad, but no matter the feelings you are experiencing please know that I am praying for each of you to have wisdom, peace and comfort through to the end of this quarantine.  I miss you all!

With the Governor’s recent decision to close schools for the
remainder of the year there are many questions that have not been answered at
this time. The state superintendent has advised all divisions that guidance
will be coming in the next couple of days in regards to graduation
requirements, meal program, standard/verified credit issuance, and basic
instructions on completing the school year with continuity of learning for all
students. We will update everyone as soon as we have received this guidance from
the state level.
