Principal's Newsletter

From the Desk of Ms. Clark

May 27, 2021

Dear Parents,

As we celebrate a long weekend, let us remember all who have fought for and defended our right to freedom. To those who died securing peace and freedom, to those who served in conflict to protect our land, to those who sacrificed their dreams of the day to preserve the hope of our nation by keeping America the land of the free, we owe our thanks and our honor.


On this upcoming Memorial Day, be sure to pause to reflect on just what has been given and sacrificed so freely, so that Freedom could ring across this great land.


God's blessings,

Ms. Clark

REVISED Symptom Screening Tool

All parents are primarily responsible for monitoring the health of their children. While it is our intention to remain open for the entire school year, parents are expected to do their part and keep their children home when they are sick.


Please see below for the “Revised” Symptom Monitor Checklist which is to be completed each day. By sending your child to school, you are confirming that you have completed this health screening.
