Bulldog Bulletin for the Week of September 21st




Upcoming Dates


September 25th - Coffee and Conversation with Mrs. Nelson

September 25th - Interims go home

September 28th- No School

September 29th - McTeacher Night 


Over the last week, a lot of information has been shared about our return to school. Families may have questions about a possible change from Virtual Academy  to Plan B. While I totally understand the unique circumstances that could lead to these requests, I am unable to make any decisions regarding programming changes for students at this time.

It's important to remember that parents who applied for Virtual Academy did so with the understanding that placement within the Virtual Academy requires a semester-long commitment. Our ability to make changes is dependent upon availability of staffing, current class sizes, and social distancing occupancy limits in our classrooms and other common areas of the school building. We will keep you updated if changes are allowed to occur.
