As you know, mother nature is delivering a solar eclipse Monday, August 21, 2017.

This communication is to inform you that we will be on a regular school schedule for Monday, August 21, 2017. Our staff will use their time to educate the children about the eclipse, and the effects that it could have on damaging their eyes.
