  • Letter From Head of School

    Diane Borgmann
    I'm sure you are all aware of Governor Holcomb's announcement yesterday that all public and non-public schools should close through May 1, which would mean that schools would resume on Monday, May 4. In the interest of the health of our community, Sycamore will comply with that request. In light of that decision, we will go forward with our Distance Learning Plan, with the exception of Monday, April 13. That is the day that we had planned to return to school, and teachers had planned to implement our DLP until then. On April 13, we will allow our teachers back in the building to plan and gather additional resources. We will resume our Distance Learning Plan on Tuesday, April 14.
