We are aware that families may congregate and travel to celebrate the holiday, and we recommend that everyone continue to follow CDC Guidelines. However, in order to be proactive all instruction will be virtual via live streaming and/or recorded instructional programs from December 1-December 4. We will resume in-building instruction on Monday, December 7.
