Recent announcements:

1) Traditionally after the first three snow days, days were made up in the spring or at the end of the year. P-E-M approved the school calendar for this year with E-Learning days taking the place of traditional make-up days. We will start using E-Learning days instead of canceling school for the next weather problem so we don't lose a day of school. Please read the parent bulletin and student checklist links below, then talk with your student about your plan for E-Learning days.
