My kids feel very comfortable with their 8th and 4th grade teachers, very helpful with their first week taking the time to get to know them has relaxed and better prepared them for the upcoming year with the new approach to some experimental classrooms as well, my kid is very happy with this.Safety is and always has been a priority in our school district; which as a parent it makes me feel great that my kids are in good and trustworthy hands.
