Happy Summer Vacation
The Skyway Staff is looking forward to the chance to see our students, whether it be through drive-by parades or Zoom parties, for some fun end of the year celebrations this last week of school. We would like to thank you for your support and flexibility this spring. It was certainly an uncharted time in education.
We hope that you and your family have a relaxing summer full of reading, exploring and joy. Happy summer vacation from the Skyway Staff!
