Attention parents and elementary students: Effective tomorrow, Tuesday, September 3, 2019, special class schedules are changing. Instead of having the same special class for each day of the week, the schedule will be on an A, B, C, D, E rotation. For example, if your child has Music on Mondays and PE on Tuesdays, now Music will be the “A” special and PE will be the “B” special. This will eliminate the problem of some classes missing a special class due to a no school day. Tomorrow we will begin with our “A” special class. Thank you in advance for supporting this change!
