• Weighing Your Options

    Dear Firebird Families,
    Many of you are still weighing the option of Plan B-50% capacity and plan C-Full remote instruction. The information provided in the linked document may help you as you consider which plan is best for your family. There are still many details that will be shared with both the staff and families as school approaches. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we follow the guidance provided by our Governor and the DHHS. Please understand that new guidance comes in daily/weekly and we may have to make changes along the way. We will continue to update you with details as they become available. As we have seen through this pandemic, the situation can change quickly. There is always a possibility that we could still end up going FULLY remote as COVID numbers change.
    Stay tuned…
    Mrs. Hobgood
