TUTORING

GENERAL INFORMATION

This is just a reminder that we will not have in-person tutoring on campus this semester (September – December 2020) due to COPVID-19. We know our Tutoring Director, Linda Evans, has sent several correspondences to our families to advise you of this over the past few weeks. We just did not want any confusion with the opening of registration, as this registration allows us to be prepared when we can return to tutoring on our campus. We do hope to have in-person tutoring next semester (beginning in January) but will make that decision by years’ end.
