COVID 19 Rules and Regulations:

Due to COVID Restrictions:

No visitors are allowed on campus.

If your student is not registered for school yet you will need to call the school to set up an appointment time to come in and register. We are trying to limit the number of people congregating in the office at any time.


Please make sure that the school has correct contact information for parents. Schoology will send weekly progress report emails and we will send weekly newsletters as well. We need to be able to contact you via phone and email.

Interested in Archery?

If you are interested in trying out for the archery team you will need to add the alba archery group in Schoology. All requirements are listed in resources and need to be completed by September 6th. If the required paperwork is completely filled out on time and required Nearpod is completed with at least a 70% score you will then be invited to an archery evaluation to determine whether you have met the criteria to be on the team or not. Parents need to view and sign the paperwork electronically along with student. No applications will be considered if turned in late.

Food on Campus

Students will eat breakfast and lunch in their classrooms to help maintain social distancing and contact tracing.

There will be no water fountains available for students. Students are encouraged to bring their own water bottle each day.

If students choose to bring their own lunch or snacks they must bring these items with them when they arrive at school. Students are not allowed to share food or drinks with classmates this year. Students will not be allowed to heat up any food that they bring.

Parents will not be allowed to drop off any food or drink for students.

A Note from Our Nurse:

If your child is sick- keep them at home!

You must notify the school if your student tests positive so we can determine if anyone was exposed and needs to quarantine.

If someone is positive in your household students will need to quarantine for 10 days if they are not vaccinated. Please be cautious!
