Chromebook Q&A
As Chromebooks were rolled out this week, we have had several questions from parents and students. In answer, we’ve put together a Q&A since we know if one parent has a question there are likely many who have the same question. You’ll find the Q&A on our website here

COVID Awareness & Reminder
Pirate Families, thank you for your diligence in staying COVID aware. The administrative leadership is meeting every morning to discuss the current status of COVID within the school and in the larger community. Our primary objectives remain student safety and keeping our students in the school.  We are now all well-versed in the basic preventative measures. As a reminder, one of the most important preventative measures is to stay home when exhibiting symptoms of any illness. Again, thank you for your help as we navigate these interesting times!

Re-enrollment Now Open
