Return To School

As we enter into the 2021-2022 School Year, we are excited to be welcoming all students back to full-time, in-person learning. The past 18 months have certainly posed some challenges, and while the world is not necessarily seeing COVID-19 or its variants in our rear-view mirror, we are certainly on the road to something that comes closer to resembling “school.”
