Dear Tapestry and EPIC Families,

Included below is an update on our 2020 Summer Tapestry & EPIC Programs. Expectations for the program have been adjusted to fit the current COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the needs of the students and families in our community. Plans are moving forward to provide learning opportunities for our students this summer in a distance learning format. Detailed information about summer learning programs, including how students will register for classes, will be communicated in the next few weeks. Parents and students will be notified through our normal district communication tools including Google Classroom, emails, SchoolMessenger calls, texts, social media and Tapestry/EPIC staff outreach. Thank you again for all you are doing to ensure your students remain engaged and connected with teachers and staff.
