A virtual conference was held with area school superintendents this morning (April 3rd) and the collective belief was that it is in our best interest to wait for further clarification next week by the Indiana Department of Education before making any additional adjustments to our school calendar for the remainder of the year.  Updates will be provided as they become available.

As we begin our scheduled spring break, enjoy time with those close to you, take the opportunity to reach out (virtually or by phone) to others, and know how much you are appreciated for the role you have played in ensuring that learning continues for our students.
