We use this feedback to improve our school and the overall school experience for all. All students and staff will complete the surveys here at the school. We do ask that parents/guardians take a few minutes of their time to complete the survey for us. https://www.research.net/r/SDFamily1819EN is the link for the parent/guardian survey. This link will open on Monday February 11 and will close on Friday March 15.
