Friends, this week, Tuesday 3/17 and Wednesday 3/18, from 10AM – 1PM, we ask, if need be, you come by campus and get what you need from your locker so that you’re equipped for online classes beginning 3/23. Our campus will be closed to families after Wednesday at 1PM. Middle to late this week you’ll receive instructions concerning online classes and how to prepare for those. More info to come. Once again, thanks for your patience and understanding. As we continue to monitor the regional and national situation, we very much hope to be back on campus in two weeks. Be well, C. Harper
