Adult & Community Education

  • IMPORTANT INFORMATION: All Adult Education on-site classes have been suspended until such a time when the safety of students and staff will not be compromised by the current pandemic. Teachers will continue to provide assignments and support for students during the on-site school closure.  Students, if you have questions or concerns, please contact your teacher directly.  We will provide updates to our students as they become available. We look forward to seeing everyone soon.
