Important message for schools on Spring Break

Tansi, Edlánat’e, Hello!

We would like to thank students, parents, staff and community members for supporting a welcoming, caring, respectful, safe and healthy learning environment.

We recognize that holidays are an important time for everyone to rest and reconnect with families.

To everyone who plays a part in education, enjoy the spring break and when school resumes, come back ready for a great finish to the school year and make every day count.
