SAVHS Restart Progression

SAVHS students, parents, and guardians,

I hope that you are doing well. Thank you for your patience as we prepare to get more students back into the building. It will be very exciting to see students and we look forward to reconnecting with them in person. If you weren't able to watch last night's virtual Town Hall covering the SAVHS restart plan, you can view it via NineNorth's website and review the slideshow presentation. At the end of this message are important next steps- please make sure to carefully read the following important information.
