KNOW! Our Youth Are Beyond Stressed!
It doesn’t take an expert to see that as a whole, we are beyond STRESSED; our children are beyond stressed. What mental health professionals are telling us is that the COVID-19 pandemic has created circumstances unlike anything they have ever seen before.
 
Letter from Superintendent regarding extending virtual learning until February 8th
Dear Hornet Families:
 
We had initially planned to reopen school on Monday, February 1st.  I was hopeful that the students would be back in the classrooms. Unfortunately, things have changed, due to sickness and quarantined staff.   
 
We will plan to reopen Monday, February 8th.  
 
As always, we want to thank everyone for your patience, understanding, and prayers during this time.   
 
Be Safe! 

Steve Easterling 
Superintendent
 
Know! To Put Self-Care and Connection into Practice in the New Year
We’ve happily kicked 2020 to the curb and welcomed in 2021 with open arms. Now it is time to figure out what we want to make of this fresh, new year. If we learned anything in 2020, it is the importance of self-care and connection for a healthy mind and body. We may still be wearing masks, social distancing, and dealing with other COVID-related regulations, however, the time to get motivated, set new goals, and create joy is now. Students of all ages can and should be encouraged to do the same.
