Announcements: Week of November 2, 2012

Dear Parents,  

Our school is in good shape, and we plan to resume school on Monday, November 5, 2012. If power is not restored over the weekend (we're expecting it to come on tomorrow), we will send out an email alert to everyone on Sunday.  

We hope everyone is beginning to recover from a challenging and difficult week. It will be wonderful to see all of you and your children. Best wishes for a good weekend, and we'll see you soon.
