Effective Jan. 12, Sugar Loaf Elementary School will begin remote instruction due to a staff shortage which limits the ability to safely and adequately supervise and educate students. This decision is based on 55% of core instructional staff being absent today. The administration will reevaluate over the weekend to determine if changes need to be made to the scheduled return on Jan. 18. Additional information will be posted on the website and social media. Parents have been notified through the mass notification system of the remote instruction plans and may contact the school with any additional questions.
