Due to today’s forecasted heat and unhealthy air quality, today will be an early release day. Without air conditioning in the majority of our classrooms and with students and staff having to wear masks, remaining in our school buildings for the entire school day with room temperatures in the 90’s is not healthy. Therefore, the high school and the middle school will be dismissed today, June 7 at 11 am and the elementary schools will be dismissed today at 12 noon. While tomorrow is not supposed to be as hot, it is supposed to be very humid. Therefore, tomorrow, June 8, will be a remote instructional day for all students. Please take care of yourselves and do your best to hydrate.
