Sister Lakes Families, Due to the weather, Tuesday 2/16/21 will be a distance learning day. There will be no in person instruction.
Good afternoon Sister Lakes Families, The weather forecast for tonight, 2/15/21, is describing some possible challenging weather coming our way. Because of this, students will be bringing home their tech/Chromebooks and learning materials. If the weather is severe enough, we will announce, as early as possible, that tomorrow will be a distance learning day. If we have a distance learning day, we will follow the same schedules used earlier in the year. This idea is based on maximizing as much instructional time this year as possible. Thank you.
