SCHOOL REOPENING STATUS

The Northeastern Conference Education Department has formed a COVID-19 Taskforce to form guidelines in compliance with the CDC, local government, and Atlantic Union guidelines. The document is waiting approval from the legal department. After the legal department it will go to the school board and then to our parents. Please be patient with us. We are doing all we can to be prepared for the new school year.
