Report Cards Postponed Until November 3
Due to the loss of two instructional days and a teacher work-day from Hurricanes Hermine and Matthew, we are moving the date for the first quarter report card distribution from Tuesday, November 1, 2016 to Thursday, November 3, 2016. This will provide students with increased opportunity to complete work for credit, if applicable. We are hopeful this additional time will be beneficial for students, families, and teachers. Please look for your student’s report card on Thursday, November 3, 2016. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
