QTS had a smooth opening day on March 22, 2021 as we return to in person learning on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. From Miss Ann Penn starting the day with a blessing song from her family, to kindergartners getting acquainted with one another, to classrooms combining in person with online learning and students meeting to decide how to bring about an Virtual Reality Learning Center. We had 102 students with us today out of 132 K12.
Wow, it has been a year since we have had students back in the school. We are excited to see all of you and promise to help you make the adjustments to school routines. It might be an emotional day for many and that is okay. We will take care of each other. Welcome back QTS students and families from Superintendent Mark J. Decker.
