We begin this October newsletter by celebrating our principals during National Principals Month. We want to thank our principals and assistant principals for all the work they do, especially during this challenging time of coronavirus.

We also want to thank the schools' PTAs/PTOs for helping to purchase items such as milk crates for our elementary children to store items under their desks, handwashing timers for students in beginning grades, and for providing snacks and water for teachers during "Meet and Greets."

At this time we want to remind our families that schools are closed on Tuesday, November 3, Election Day, and on Sunday, November 1, Daylight Savings Time ends, marking the time we turn our clocks back one hour.
