You can also email staff Monday – Friday between 8:00 and 4:00. If you email at other times, please give them time to answer, as they are taking care of their families and their health much like you are.

Ms. C. will not be available on Mondays as she will be watching her grandchildren.

Did I mention we miss you? Please reach out through email at any time. We would love to hear what you have been up to since we’ve seen you. Thank you to all of you who have reached out and thank you to all of our tortoise housing volunteers. The tortoises are taken care of for the remainder of the school closure period!

Promotion and 3rd Quarter Awards are being planned currently. There will be a celebration, although it will be different than it has been in the past. Our goal is to make sure we celebrate your accomplishments while keeping you safe and following state guidelines.

All State testing has been cancelled for the 19-20 school year.

All VDL course final exams will be taken from home until further notice.

Friday, April 10th,  is a holiday. Staff will not be working.

We are currently enrolling new 6th grade students for the 20-21 school year. Please send any referrals my way.

I appreciate all of the support and kindness families have extended to our staff during this situation. I am so fortunate to have you on the Trailblazer team!

Congratulations to the following students for being top contributors to the DDI Leaderboard. Not only do you get credit for participating but also for making positive comments on others’ posts.
