We are going strong!

Thank you to all of our families for keeping our students safe. Always interesting to hear peoples' "predictions" of how this school year would go and we are moving right past most of them! It is only with our hard work and communication with each other that school keeps moving in this positive direction.

Just a reminder if you didn't place your order for picture day, you still can! Follow the instructions below. You will click on the picture that is after picture day. All of your students look so scholarly yesterday!

Weather is getting cooler! Just a reminder that we will go outside for recess. Please make sure your child brings a jacket if they think it would be necessary. Please make sure you mark their name inside since we have many students that will wear the exact same size!

It is not too late to order your child's picture from picture day!

School starts at 8:00

Just a gentle reminder that school starts at 8:00. Students should be at their desk ready to begin their day. If your child is tardy, please bring them to the main office. Before they are admitted into school, they will still have the MATH process, including their temperature checked. We ask that you remain outside until they have been cleared to come into school.

After school

Please be advised that we cannot allow access to classrooms after school due to the cleaning and sanitizing that is being done. We apologize for this inconvenience- it is the best safety of our school!

Virtual School

Just as a reminder: Any Virtual students wishing to come back into the physical classroom must give us a 2 week notice of the move.

If your child is in the school building and would like to move to the virtual school, please let Mrs. Heil know and they may start immediately. Please refer to the above, that one that move is made, they must attend the virtual school for at least 2 weeks.

Any student that is home sick or awaiting test results for themself or a sibling and NOT enrolled in the virtual school may have access to the Zooms classes, but they are still considered absent.
