 Bears - there is no school Monday January 17th in observance of MLK Day.

Principal’s Note: Keeping our school safe from COVID-19 and the Omicron variant still remains a high priority. It appears over the next few weeks the Omicron variant will continue to increase to a peak by the end of the month. This means we all need to be hyper-vigilant to mitigate virus spread throughout our school and community. Stay home if you have cold or flu symptoms, proper masking indoors, social distance, good hand washing and ventilation. Up to date vaccinations (boosted) are still scientifically proven to be the best prevention of serious COVID infections. Let’s all do our part to get through this.

Fastpitch Parents: There is a parent meeting this Thursday January 13th at 6:30 pm in the THS Learning Commons (library). Let’s welcome our new head coach and launch the spring of 2022 together! Please enter building through the front/main entrance. Go Bears!
