February begins!

We hope that you enjoyed this weekend's sprinkle of snow. It’s been quite a year, and we are excited to celebrate the 100th day of school on Tuesday this week.

Monday, February 1 is a remote learning day due to weather conditions. All students will learn from home. Please check your teacher's page below for details.

We’d like to let you know that we are currently taking orders for our 2021 yearbook. The cost is $25, and we will only order yearbooks in May for those who order in advance. We sent home fliers a few weeks ago, and you can order a yearbook by returning the envelope and payment to school OR by ordering directly below. If you need another form or have questions, please contact our media specialist Mrs. St. John about the yearbooks.

We’d like to let you know that Thursday, February 4 is an early release day for all students. We will dismiss school at 12:30.

You can find more information about your child's class by clicking on your teacher's picture below.

We appreciate your efforts to keep our students and our school family safe. We are grateful for your patience, flexibility, and your willingness to follow safety protocols. Thank you for working with us throughout this unusual year. Have a good evening!

About Attendance

Parents, please note that since we have moved to Plan A, students who are participating in Plan A will be marked PRESENT or ABSENT. If your child is not in school, you will need to send in absence notes as usual and it will be coded as excused or unexcused. If your child is officially quarantined or excluded by the health department and/or the school nurse, those absences would be excused. If your child needs to be out, we will work with you to make sure your child doesn't get behind.

For students who continue with remote learning note that in order for us to count your child in attendance off site, we must on a daily basis verify that the student is engaged (completing and submitting assignments), on pace (participating in the virtual classroom), or receiving academic/emotional support (directly from the teacher). If this isn't happening, your child will be counted absent. Please make sure that your child is submitting work and that you are communicating with the teacher daily. Thanks in advance for your help!
