Our team has been working hard to get classroom rosters set for returning to Hybrid.  I am pleased to share that we have this information finalized for our elementary classrooms.  Elementary students return to Hybrid on March 31st.  We will be sending a message out to you all individually tomorrow, but please feel free to reach out to your current homeroom teacher or a member of our office team to get information on if your student will be attending the AM or PM times and if there will be a change in homeroom teacher for your student.  Our teams’ goal was to make this transition as easy on all of our students as possible but we are not able to keep all students with their current Homeroom teacher.  Thank you for your understanding.
