by Lewis Rhodes -

Please be advised that the Link will be closed from March 18th-April 2nd, 2023 for Spring Break. During this time, students and teachers will have a well-deserved break and time to recharge for the remainder of the semester. However, it's important to note that the online platform will still be available for students to access course materials and assignments. School reopens on April 3rd, and we look forward to hearing from you then!

You can continue to work throughout the break (and, SHOULD, if you have been slacking a bit - this is a great time to get caught up as we head into June). However, you work will not be marked, and your teachers will not be available for questions.
