KIDSTOP will be available those three days by registration only. Because of the changes to December’s calendar, January 18th and March 4th will now be in-person learning days instead of a staff development and digital learning day.

The district says the decision was made due to staffing shortages, student absences, and other pandemic-related challenges.
