We will be adding to this site on an ongoing basis. While this is a new and changing situation for everyone, we hope that you will find some of the resources useful. Please take care of yourselves, and keep in touch!

Learning and Maintaining Normalcy from Afar

Here we go... we are in this together! Learning and maintaining some normalcy in your everyday life will certainly be different over the next few weeks. We will post resources and activities that you might find helpful and/or interesting to try.

We wish we were available as we always are to see you at school, but for now, we will do the best we can to work with you remotely. Updates will be posted regularly on the SAU 16 website and the CMS website.

Take care of yourselves. Keep things light when you can!
