Families, We apologize for reaching capacity in last night's community Town Hall meeting. In our efforts to improve with purpose, we utilized a different technology to remove the advanced pre-registration barrier for families. Unfortunately, this technology maxed out, and for that, we extend our sincere apologies. We have two options so you have the opportunity to hear last night's Town Hall or join us Thursday evening for an additional Town Hall.
