It was a scorcher this week! It's remarkable to me that the humidity will go away this weekend and then be back next week - poor kids (and grown ups)! Please remember to have your children wear loose clothing and stay hydrated. Both teachers and students have been wonderful despite the tough conditions in the classroom.
Just a reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day.
