Third Snow Day of the Week!

What a week it has been! I woke up to surprising news on the school district superintendent’s Twitter account that Surrey Schools were closed for the third day this week. I hope you are all staying safe and avoiding walking or driving.


Maintenance staff and grounds crew are at schools clearing snow and making it safe for us when we return. Make sure to show your appreciation for their hard work by thanking them and being considerate of them when we return to school.
