How will COVID impact the next school year? 

The one thing we know for certain with the COVID-19 pandemic is that information is constantly changing. At this point in time, we don't know what next year will look like in terms of masking, social distance, etc. We hope to be on the path back to a more "normal" school environment. You may look over our existing COVID-19 guidebookto gain familiarity with how we have adapted our school environment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
