Coronavirus Updates & Information

Useful Links and Information for Students and Families

Students and Families,

This is a time of many unknowns. The coronavirus has changed our lives! Our ‘new normal’ is different than any of us has experienced before. It will get better! We will get together with family and friends again, we just can’t say when. I have put this newsletter together to give you some information that I hope you will find helpful!

Currently the CDC recommends that we

  • stay home
  • social distance (6 feet from others)

  • wash our hands frequently

  • WEAR A MASK IF WE GO OUT IN PUBLIC (around people)
