11/25/20: Attention - Full Remote learning for all programs at Starlight School – Preschool and School-age classes - December 1 through December 11

Dear Preschool and K-12 School Community: TuscBDD and Starlight School staff members thank you for your understanding and flexibility during this difficult time. We recognize the importance of students being in school, not only for academics, but also for their social/emotional well-being; unfortunately, the current COVID-19 situation has forced us to make changes to our plans. Our revised strategy is to operate on a fully remote plan starting on Tuesday, December 1, 2020 through Friday, December 11, 2020. We will monitor the situation and make an announcement regarding our strategy to return to in-person instruction at a later date.
