Important Announcement
03/06/2020
Dear Parents, Like you, I have concerns about the coronavirus situation in the world and within the United States. What makes it so difficult is that no one knows how serious the situation could become. It’s kind of like that “big winter storm” that gets predicted a week before it happens. You can’t make any immediate rash decisions so far in advance. Still, on the other hand, you want to continue to monitor the situation carefully and make logical, prudent decisions based on the latest information whenever the time becomes right.
