Welcome Back Students!
We are very excited to begin another school year. This year will certainly be a year unlike any we have experienced before. I am confident that if we all work together, and exercise extreme patience and flexibility, we will maximize this online learning experience. We ALL have a major learning curve to navigate but if any school can make this work effectively and efficiently Dragon Nation certainly can! Your child's teachers are ready to help you tackle any issues you have along the way and the front office staff are here to support you in any way that you need.

Covid-19 numbers have increased which has prompted SMCPS to make the decision to "pause" in-person instruction until the 2nd marking period. No students will return to school until November 2nd (at the earliest) and Covid-19 numbers will dictate whether that is even possible.
This information was presented at the 9/16 Town Hall Meeting. You can view that meeting HERE.
The letter sent to parents (from Superintendent Scott Smith) can be found HERE.
