A decision regarding Thursday student and staff attendance will be made Wednesday. There is a possibility of no school for students and a late start for staff on Thursday.

We will post the decision here on Facebook, Twitter and our website, send call-out messages to parents listed in Infinite Campus and will let local media outlets know.
