Teaching continues and students can move about within the building as usual. All students and staff who are outside come inside and we secure exterior doors. We would shelter in case of a natural disaster, exterior hazmat spill, or another event that requires instructions from outside authorities.
- What was the most challenging thing you did this week? What made it challenging? What did you do to try to persevere?
