Volunteer Training: Supporting Early Reading Skills
All schools in the district will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, March 22nd, due to the continuing threat of severe weather tonight and into tomorrow morning. This has been a particularly challenging storm to track with the start of the more severe weather shifting throughout the day to a later arrival to our area. The most recent weather predictions are still calling for up to 8-10 inches of wet and heavy snow starting tonight and lasting through tomorrow mid-morning, which would make for dangerous roads, sidewalks, and travel conditions tomorrow. All afterschool programs, SCALE classes, and school evening activities scheduled for tomorrow are also cancelled. We look forward to welcoming students back to school on Friday. Thank you and stay safe!
