Dear Parents,

As of this moment Santa Margarita will be on regular schedule on Monday.  There is a possibility of road closures due to rain which may require Santa Margarita to close.  We are continuing to look at the situation and will send out a message at 6:30 am Monday morning with the latest details.  If you drop your child off for before school care, there may not be personnel available on Monday.  Please check with the before school programs ahead of time before coming to the school.
