    Thank you for your patience last Friday during the ice storm.  We know information was a bit confusing and that many of you had to wait as we were attending to the students that were sent here from other schools. 
    I really want to thank our amazing office staff that had to field non-stop phone calls throughout the day and for the staff that pitched in to assist with the students that came from other schools.  Everyone got home safely and we truly appreciate your cooperation. 


    Friendly Reminder:
