School News:  At the regularly scheduled Board of Education meeting on February 12 the following decision about make-up days was made:

  • As of 2/12, we were about a day and a half short on instructional time.  Due to this shortage and any other unforeseen shortage for cancellations,
  • Monday, April 22, (the day after Easter) is now a full day of school.
  • Also, starting March 1, the school day will run from 7:55 until 3:25. 

With these 2 corrections, we will be sufficient in our instructional time to finish out the 2018-2019 school year.
