Thanks to all families for working with us this morning as we dealt with an unexpected power outage in the building. District buses have picked up all bus riders to return home. Please have your child check their Advisor's Schoology page for an assignment that is due by 2:30pm. Submission of the assignment will count as "present" for today's attendance.
