Programming Alert: October 5, 2021
Effective immediately and until further notice, an enrollment and registration freeze is in effect for all Mascot Club before and after school programs at all sites.
As noted by Superintendent Dr. Troy Bales in a recent community message, our district continues to be impacted by staffing shortages in many areas, and, unfortunately, these shortages have also affected Community Education programs.
We will post updates to this page to keep the community informed of any status changes, so please check back often.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
