Laptop distribution delayed

Can you believe that the first day of school is almost here?

I think I am in denial, or I’m just too busy with other things to even think about back to school. It has definitely been an eventful summer. Some good. Some bad. But school comes around, whether we are ready or not.

Aug. 28 is student orientation day for students in grades kindergarten, sixth and ninth. It is a nice day to get used to a new building, new rules and new schedule without all the older students filling the halls.
