Due to anticipated weather and the safety challenges they presented for activities in cold and wet conditions, we have decided to cancel the camping trip. This was a difficult decision to make but necessary when weighed against the potential risks. In light of this decision, we have decided to replace the trip with activities here at school and in the surrounding community. These will include swimming at Central Park Rec, an urban hike, and a school lock-in! A permission slip with the details of the events on Wednesday and Thursday will be coming home with your student Monday. Please feel free to contact us with questions or concerns (email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org).
Due to the Cancelled Camping Trip this week, there are no major updates for math and language arts classes. We are modifying the schedule to include exciting alternatives to the trip and will not have much time in core classes.
Have a great week!
