HS Weekly Update 1/26/21

High School Students and Families,

Apologies for the delay in receiving this week’s message.  We had a family member test positive for Covid-19 over the weekend and had to pivot yesterday.  For the next two weeks, I will be quarantining and working from home.  Email will be the best way to reach me if you need to get in touch as I will not be in the office.  I appreciate your understanding.

Please see below for the latest and greatest updates from the high school world. You can also access this message in the ERA HS Parent Resource Folder.
