2. Administration Announcements from Ms. Gofredo

3. Instructional Announcements from Your Student’s Teacher


Our website acts as our “home base” for communications.

We will provide summaries of announcements here as a backup resource.

Social Media

Follow us on Facebook & Instagram for the fun things we can do to virtually deliver elements from our normal school days to our students.

Watch for the jokes of the day, birthdays, other general announcements.
