Hello Grape Pickers!

This is a reminder that district calendar was amended in September 2023, to allow students and staff to be off on Monday, April 8, 2024, during the solar eclipse. The swap day scheduled at that time was Friday, March 15, 2024. The change was made after the district calendar was mailed to families.  Please note that school will be in session on Friday, March 15, 2024. Please use the calendar posted on the website for any updates and have a great evening.


Dr. Michele S. Hartzell, Superintendent
