Presenting the 9th Grade Show
Friday, February 19
7:00 p.m.

This year's 9th grade show will take place over Zoom! What would it be like if Greek myths took place in modern times with technology and social media at the gods' and goddesses' fingertips? The Olympus Complex by Ingrid Oslund answers that question in this retelling of Greek myths with a twist taking place in the Olympus Complex, an apartment building run by Zeus and Hera.

Recommended for ages 11 and older. 10 and under with parental guidance suggested. Learn more and RSVP.

PIKETalks Requests Your Feedback

Daily Risk Mitigation Team Dashboard Update

In the last couple of weeks, we have seen an increase in students wearing masks with valves. As a reminder, the CDC does not support these masks in preventing the spread of the COVID-19. Any community members with these masks will be asked to replace them if they have a different mask with them. If they do not, we will give them a disposable one that they can wear for the remainder of the day. 

To ensure the safety of our community, we urge all families to be home by Tuesday so their child(ren) are ready to learn on Wednesday, February 17. If you travel to another state, we ask you to comply with the travel guidelines set by the Commonwealth.

Before returning to campus, we will conduct drive-through testing on Friday,
February 19. This will be a pooled test, not an individual test. We will be sending out more details along with a sign-up.
