Teacher Time - Fridays Mornings

New this year is Teacher Time Fridays for teachers in Middle School and High School.  This means that teachers will not be seeing any students before school for tutoring, reassessments or tutoring Friday Mornings this year.  This does not alter the normal arrival times.  This is only for students that plan to come in "early" to see the teacher.   This time is dedicated to teacher collaboration and innovation.  Thanks for your support!
