Dear Parents,

***We will have an E-Learning Day on October 13th. Your child will not come to school on this day. They will have Seesaw assignments to complete at home on this day. The purpose of the E-Learning days is to allow students to get more familiar with distance learning. We will send out a paper that explains the assignments your child will be expected to complete. These assignments should take no longer than an hour to complete. We will have three more E-Learning days coming up in the school year. We will send more information at a later date.
