With the big snowstorm forecast for tonight and tomorrow, we may have a Snow Day called for Wednesday. The district will be out on the roads early in the morning to see how the roads are and will call it at that time. Watch your notifications to see if school will be held in person or if it will be a virtual day tomorrow. Our teachers are preparing for the possibility, and some are choosing to send home packets today for students to work on tomorrow. Others are getting assignments on Canvas for your child to access. If we do have a snow day, your child’s teacher will be accessible via email for any supports needed.
