New Distribution Schedule for School Reentry E-Newsletter
Starting in January 2022, the distribution frequency of this e-newsletter will change. Instead of being sent weekly, this e-newsletter will change to a monthly distribution with additional issues sent out as needed during the month for important School Reentry news and information.

The distribution frequency change is taking place to ensure that we don't overload your inbox .

The district will continue to maintain the School Reentry web page where additional information will be posted. Be sure to check that page periodically to ensure you are up-to-date between monthly issues of this e-newsletter.
