Dear Parents & Guardians,

As we head into our winter break, we want to say thank you for all that you have done to help make the first part of the school year successful. This year has presented unprecedented challenges, and through your support, we have had a successful first half of the school year.

With the holidays right around the corner, we wanted to share some resources on how you can connect with your kids during the holiday season and additional contacts should you be in need of additional support over the break. Please view these resources using the included link.

As a reminder, the winter break runs from December 18 through January 3. Students will return to school on Monday, January 4. We hope that you have a happy, healthy, and rejuvenating break and look forward to returning in the new year.
