  1. LT – please learn to communicate with us using modern methods. Where are pictures? Visual messages live longer than written words. Someone must have taken a picture of the facility somewhere. We will accept a file photo with a past date. We will accept a picture taken with a cell phone. We will even accept someone’s selfie with the school in the background – assuming it is clear.
