Update on Spring Semester 2021

We are starting Spring Semester 2021 in Distance Learning. If the transmission of positive cases in our community improves, we will return to small cohorts for elementary students and specific cohorts of students in secondary. Once our county moves into the red from purple, we will reopen our secondary programs in small cohorts for all students. As more information becomes available, it will be posted.
