Picture Make-Up Day - 10/7/2021

We will have a picture make-up day on Thursday, October 7, 2021. The photographer has mailed the photos from September, and we should be able to distribute them early next week before the picture make-up day. If a retake is necessary, Thursday will be available for that purpose. If a student missed the September picture day, the student will have their picture taken.

Wear Blue - 10/8/2021

In celebration of the Nevada Week of Respect, we encourage everyone to wear something blue on Friday, October 8, 2021. We will kick off our activities on Wednesday with citizenship assemblies and we will have activities related to respect the week of October 11th.

Clothing Donations Requested (Reposting)

We often need to provide a change of clothes for students who have soiled an article of clothing during the day. Our Health Office is in need of donations of clothing at this time!


Here is what we are requesting:


  • New or gently-used shirts (all children's sizes)
  • New or gently-used pants (all children's sizes)
  • New or gently -used shorts (all children's sizes)
  • New underwear (in store packaging, all children's sizes for both boys and girls)


This is a good time to check through your closets for any items that might no longer fit your child. If you have any items to donate, please be sure to drop off items to the front office during regular office hours. We appreciate your consideration!

REMINDER: Screen Your Child's Health Before School Each Day

Families are required to check their child's health each morning before coming to school on in-person learning days.


Any students determined to be exhibiting symptoms related to COVID-19 will be sent home immediately from school from the satellite health office. Should isolation and/or quarantine protocols need to be enacted, communication will be provided from the school.

REMINDER: Facial Coverings/Masks Required

Approved facial coverings/masks continue to be required for all people ages 3+ when indoors, regardless of vaccination status, until further notice.


Please provide additional clean facial coverings/masks for your child. Please send a supply in a sealed, zippered bag in your child's backpack should they need to replace a soiled or damaged mask during the school day.
