If you want to be in the know about what’s going on at our organization, you’ve come to the right place.
We follow CMS' open/close schedule. Which means that when CMS schools are closed, we're closed. And if the State of NC and CMS have decided it's best to close schools early to help ward off Coronavirus infections, who are we to disagree?
Plus, health experts currently are discouraging communal gatherings with 10 or more people and between our students and staff, we are right at or above the 100-person mark.
Why do we follow CMS' schedule? Because it makes it easy and simple for parents, staff and students to know what to do in case of inclement weather, natural disasters, pandemics, you name it.
If something changes, we'll let you know as soon as possible. Again, "STAY SAFE & HEALTHY!"
