We hope you had a wonderful, restful spring break! School resumes today, March 29, 2021. Please note, this week will look a little different. In preparation for our upcoming schedule changes on April 5th and 7th, and to allow teachers time to make the shift to in-person instruction, we will have a modified schedule. Please plan for the following (click above to see schedule details).
News & Announcements
As the COVID-19 situation continues to improve in Sonoma County, we need your input for the spring trimester. We are finalizing our safety plans and anticipating a return to campus in a Hybrid model, sometime after Spring Break. We will keep you posted once our plans have been approved by the county and state health departments. In the meantime, we need to know your preference for your student(s). Please take just a few moments to complete the survey.
