    School is permanently closed. Students will attend one of the newly built schools in the district. Teachers and classes will remain the same for the remainder of the first year at least.

    I had three daughters attend SK during the time the micro society prgram was just beginning. What a great school experience they had. Great staff principal and parent cooperation. Experience this public school with your child. Excellent!
