Head of School Weekly Email: The Final Stretch!

Dear TA Families & Students,

We want to be sure everyone understands next week’s schedule. We’ve been sharing it over the past few weeks, so hopefully there are no surprises. Please review it as a family and let us know if you have any questions. The big reminder for Monday: School is fully remote on Monday, so that all classes can meet and we are following our normal Wednesday bell schedule, 9:00 a.m. – 1:50 p.m.
