Happy Thanksgiving

As such, the County Office Building and all school facilities will close four hours early on November 27. This day was already scheduled as a non-student day as part of the Thanksgiving break.

We wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving, and extend our thanks and gratitude for what you do each day for our students.
