Friday, January 31, 2014 - School Resuming

We will attempt to resume normal operations on Friday, January 31, 2014, with a 10:00 am start time.  Please continue to use extreme caution on the road as there are still outlying areas that will continue to have ice melt and refreeze.

Contact the school office if you are in an area where you find it not passable.

Please err on the side of caution.  Thank you and be safe.
