Please communicate with your child’s teacher or principal if your child is unable to complete and turn in the second packet at the time packet 3 is picked up on May 1st. Please know we will work with our families and students to accommodate your needs during this difficult and challenging time.

We thank you so much for your continued patience and dedication to helping your children with their schoolwork during these challenging times.
