**ALL Students** Just a reminder that beginning the week after Spring Break – our school day will begin at 7:35am!!
ATTENTION SENIORS: SENIOR2SENIOR PROJECT UPDATE! In preparation for the potential impact of COVID-19 protocols on this project, we have revised our sign-up in case we are unable to visit senior living facilities (due to health/safety concerns). We now are creating groups of 10, either to send to senior facilities (if possible), where you can create teams for interviewing, OR to other service projects in our district and community. We will adjust as necessary. April 10th remains a school day for seniors in order to meet required hours for graduation. Please sign up now so we know how many seniors we can count on and encourage your friends to sign up with you! Sign up HERE! Thank you for your flexibility and senior leadership! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e094baea729a2fb6-senior2senior
