Students in grades 3 through 6, 8, 11 and 12 will return to school for hybrid instruction on Monday, March 8, 2021.

Prior to the return to the buildings for both staff and students, all will be tested, by the district, for COVID-19. Details to follow in the coming weeks regarding testing.

Please be advised that if the COVID-19 activity level lowers considerably in the state in the coming weeks, the Board will hold a special meeting in mid January to re-evaluate an earlier return.
