Finally, there will be two opportunities this week for you to be able to learn more information about our daily schedule, the first days of school, etc. On Monday evening, an informational video will be sent out to all students and parents via email and on our social media platforms. This video will guide students through the daily schedule, arrival and dismissal procedures, and other important information. Then on Wednesday, I will be hosting a Facebook Live event at 6:30 PM to share our school vision, answer questions, and address Frequently Asked Questions to make sure that everyone is prepared for the upcoming school year.

I am looking forward to a great year for all of our Comets. Please be sure to check our website and social media platforms frequently for updates and information. Let’s make it a fantastic year and together be COMETS ALL IN.
