Dear Sprague,

Hello.  This was our first full week of school in the hybrid model.  I continue to be in awe of the Sprague students, Sprague staff, and the families for ensuring this machine continues to run on time and well!  I am not surprised but certainly proud and impressed.  Thank you.

Please note there is no school on Monday due to the holiday.
