Hopefully all is well with our students and community. This week is teacher appreciation week! Please take a moment to use email or social media to thank a teacher this week. Our teachers work extremely hard for our students and it is evidenced by the creativity and diligence that they have displayed during distance learning.
Parents will have and opportunity to pick up their personal belongings from school this Tuesday and Wednesday. Parents will not exit their vehicles. Staff members will greet parents at door 1 and collect belongings from lockers along with pictures, instruments and other items that were left at school. Items will then be delivered to your vehicles.
Pick up this week will be held Tuesday and Wednesday from 8 am- 2 pm. Please use the
student belongings pick up form to select a time to pick up your child's things. Pick-up times are scheduled according to grade level.
Please continue to utilize our online learning lab the, Cougar Den, to access new learning opportunities.
Be safe and healthy.
