Sierra Charter is following with the direction of surrounding school districts in the upcoming weeks. Our school will be closed March 16 - April 13, 2020 due to the Coronavirus Covid-19. We will deploy the curriculum through Independent Study. Our staff will communicate and monitor student progress. At the end of the four weeks, we will review the situation and determine if an extension is warranted. Please know that your child's health and safety is our number one priority.
Thank you for your flexibility and support as we navigate this uncharted territory.
