Return to School Handbook

July 23, 2020

Mission: Ensure all students are successful.

Vision: All members of our learning community will work collaboratively and 

have the courage, competence, and commitment 

to take ownership of their development, 

face challenges, and 

find solutions.  

The learning community includes students, staff, parents, and community members.

Together our work will focus on creating a balance between 

intellectual, physical, social and emotional development 

with the goal that every student 

will be college and career ready.
