Monday, September 26, 2022 is a Flex Day. Students will NOT attend school and will not have any work to complete at home, since this is not an instructional day. Flex days are not eLearning days, but are scheduled days in which our staff will participate in professional development. The two other flex days scheduled for the 22-23 school year are January 16 and April 10.
