Student Schedule Next Week 

Next week will look different as we approach Thanksgiving recess.  Classes will run as usual on Monday and Tuesday.  There will not be live classes on Wellness Wednesday.  Instead, teachers will post an activity in Google Classroom for students to complete independently due to the half day.  Thanksgiving recess will be November 26th – 27th.  We hope you are able to safely spend time with loved ones and we wish each of you a Happy Thanksgiving!  School will resume virtually on November 30th.
