NEW: Distance Learning Plan
Due to mandatory school closure for the rest of the year, our teachers will post learning activities to support continued learning for students at home. The activities posted below will be updated every Monday between the dates of April 6 and May 8. May 8th is the last instructional day for this year.
Parents are encouraged to set aside time each day for their children to read and work through some of the interesting activities that our teachers have worked hard to prepare. Our school staff really miss the personal contact with our awesome students and very much look forward to the day when we can be together with them in person again. Until that time, please use the resources provided each week and encourage your children to continue to learn. The link below explains in more detail our distance learning plan. If you have any questions or if we can help, please contact us and thank you for your patience and understanding during this mandatory school closure.

The following message was posted on facebook by our baseball coach, Colby O’Donnell, to his players in response to baseball season being cancelled due to COVID-19. Coach’s love, care and concern for his guys resonate with how our entire school community feels about all our students.
“Baseball is over for the spring. I wish it wasn’t true but this is our reality. I’m truly sorry to all my boys especially my two seniors, Logan and Rayce. All you guys have made baseball fun again, and I’m disappointed we can’t see our season through. I tell my boys after every talk “God, Family and Baseball.” Right now those words still ring true to me. In these tough times have faith, take care of each other, and remember the game. I love you guys. Stay safe.” – Coach O’Donnell
