The Department of Education has decided to continue distance learning through the end of the 2019-2020 school year, May 29th. Mayor Victorino is also expected to announce an extension of the stay-at-home directive into May, possibly to the end of the month. The good news: our community efforts are working and we are seeing single-digit to zero positive COVID-19 test results. Here are a few bits of news to keep you and your family busy this weekend:
