School
 Start
 Procedure
 
We
 recognize
 that
 some
 families
 are
 in
 situations
 that
 make
 it
 difficult
 or
 impossible
 for
  students
 to
 attend
 school
 right
 now.
 We
 will
 be
 working
 with
 each
 family
 on
 an
 individual
  basis
 to
 lessen
 the
 impact
 of
 their
 later
 start.
 
 Please
 contact
 your
 child’s
 building
 to
 work
  out
 a
 plan,
 and
 to
 let

 you
 child
 can
 return
 to
 school.
