Attendance and Health Reminders

Just a few friendly reminders regarding health and attendance:

  • If your child is sick or has symptoms of Covid, they should not attend school
  • You must call the school attendance line to report all absences
  • Please leave specific details of your child's symptoms and we'll notify you of their return date
  • Please review the Student Symptom Tree to help guide you with questions regarding Covid symptoms and next steps

Thank you for wearing your mask each time you enter the school office or any school building. We appreciate everyone's diligence in completing the daily "Shared Responsibility" in checking for symptoms and keeping students home when they are ill. Together we'll make it through the year in keeping everyone healthy and well. Being back together in person is so wonderful!

Thank you, Bears!
