Due to cleanup efforts following a burst water pipe in Founders Hall, Thurs., Jan. 19 will be a work-from-home school day. Teachers will communicate with students and post assignments to Haiku. Administrative offices will be open, and tomorrow's athletic contests will proceed as scheduled, as will the weekend's Snowflake. We will share an update with our community as soon as cleanup is complete. Please note: school will be closed Fri., Jan. 20 for the Presidential Inauguration. During this day, scheduled maintenance will cause our website to be down for several hours. There will also be interruptions in our school email and Haiku; we apologize for the inconvenience.
