I hope you had an opportunity to rest and spend time with your family as we were snowed in on Wednesday and Thursday.  I spent Tuesday night stranded with hundreds of other motorists on LSD…quite an experience I will soon not forget.  Because of the snow emergency, our schedule was interrupted.  Please check the grade level tab for updated due dates/test dates/quiz dates.
