BEST - Bringing Everyone's Strengths Together
CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - [updated 3/15/20 5:35pm] The Rankin County School District has extended Spring Break for two weeks. All schools [and Frontiers] will be closed Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27 per the recommendation of Governor Tate Reeves. As a result, March's tuition will be prorated to $10 per school day in March (regardless of your child's attendance on these days, as such applies to general tuition). The remainder of March's tuition will be credited towards tuition when we return. We will not "bank draft" tuition until further notice. Thank you for allowing us to serve you!
