Face coverings

Please ensure that your child's face covering fits properly. The face covering must cover the nose and mouth. We want to be able to keep school open. It is imperative that students are wearing face coverings that fit them correctly.

Is your child well enough for school today?

  1. Any student displaying symptoms: fever (100.4) or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, and/or nausea should NOT come to school - any student displaying symptoms will be sent home.

  2. Students’ temperatures will be taken each day.

  3. All students will sanitize their hands upon entering the building and wear their face masks while inside the building and while outside.

    1. If your child has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask, please contact the office for a form to be completed by a physician, in order for them to be able to wear a face shield.

Ipad Insurance information

Does your student have Ipad insurance? Just $25 per year covers many oopsies that could be very expensive. This can be paid in the office by cash/check or ParentVue by Credit/Debit.
