A Note From Ms. Stephens
Dear Parents –
Just an FYI – I will be out of school for medical leave (everything is FINE!) for somewhere between 4-6 weeks. I will be checking email, but I just ask for patience if it may take a little longer to get a reply from me. Please know I already CANNOT wait to be back around you and your children once more. Thanks so much!
