Thanks for your Cooperation!
A huge thank you to all of our families for being flexible and responsive to the early dismissal need on Friday! We know that last-minute changes are an inconvenience and are grateful for your help in ensuring a timely dismissal before streets were closed for the Vice President's visit.
There will be no Metro classes November 22-26 for Thanksgiving Break. Our building will be closed and staff members will be on break along with students.
