Parents, we have made the difficult decision to send home students due to no power and what appears to be no imminent restoration. Leonidas will remain open. Buses will start picking up students at 8:30AM and taking them home. Walkers may leave as normal. Parent pickup should be done using the usual processes and at the locations at each building. If you have specific student questions, please reach out via email to CES: rcrotser@colonsschools.org CHS: nmcclish@colonschools.org

🧡 Recently we received a donation of a sewing machine that needed some TLC, and Mrs. Wagner wasted no time getting it up and running for our Life Skills class. πŸ™ŒThen, earlier this week, we put out a call to our community for more sewing machines in need of a little TLC, and wow, did our community come through! 🌟 Thanks to incredibly generous donors, our middle school students were able to gather up these machines and deliver them to our very own "sewing machine whisperer"! 🀫 Let's keep the sewing magic going! πŸ’–
