    Posted on 03/15/2021

    I hope this message finds you safe and well.  March is often the busiest time of the school year, as we work through our budget and staffing allocations.  Over the last few weeks, we have been working with our Building Leadership Team as well as our budget subcommittee to finalize our budget and staffing for the 2021-2022 school year.  I will be sharing updated information with the community once we are able to finalize this process for next fall.  Thank you for your continued support and enjoy the sunshine this weekend!
