Just a reminder that tomorrow, April 25, is a snow make-up day. It will be an A day for the kids. Also, please mark your calendars for May 27. This was supposed to be another make-up day but the superintendent has been excused the day. Therefore, Friday, May 27 will NOT be a school day. Everyone can enjoy the long Memorial Day weekend!!
Have a great week,
Jamie W. Brooks
