End of the Year FIELD DAY!

Greetings Grace Families,

As you know, the end of the school year is quickly approaching and with that comes our last event of the year.


On Wednesday, June 1st, the PTF will be sponsoring the annual Field Day for grades K-5 and a free BBQ lunch for grades preschool-8th with Kona Ice for K-8th. The preschool will be getting their own treat. Game stations will be set up around the blacktop/field and each class will rotate through the games from 9-11:30 a.m. The BBQ lunch and Kona Ice will follow shortly after.


WE NEED YOUR HELP to make the day a big success and are looking for volunteers for the following:

  • 12-15 volunteers to help us run the game stations
  • 4-5 volunteers to help serve food
  • 1-2 volunteers to BBQ the food

Game Volunteers need to be at the school at 8:30 a.m. to help set up and get your assignment. Cooks need to arrive at about 10:45 a.m. and servers need to arrive at about 11:45 a.m.


If you are interested in helping and finishing up those service hours, please email Ben Elliott at: belliott@gracelcms.net

PARENTS, PLEASE READ: COVID AND ILLNESS PROTOCOL

Please see this clarification for on campus/off campus exposure. Hopefully, it will help you when trying to decide how to handle illness and exposures.



  1. Please keep your child home if they have any symptoms of illness. At this time we should assume that any symptoms are COVID. We advise you to obtain testing if you are unsure. If your child tests positive please notify the school office. You will receive information about a timeline when we receive your notification.
  2. For Covid exposure there is one set of rules for on-campus exposure and another for off-campus exposure.
    1. On campus exposure: We are using the Group Tracing module. Children may remain in school but must be tested on day 3, 4, or 5 after exposure. The school has limited access to rapid tests in the office, so we recommend that students get tested at a local testing site, or you may use a home test kit. If your own is used, we will just need a picture that includes the test with child’s name on it and a date stamp.
    2. Off campus exposure: If a child is exposed off campus and is vaccinated, they may remain at school as long as they do not have symptoms (We do need a copy of your child’s immunization card for our records). If they are not vaccinated, they should quarantine at home for 5 days and then test. The school has limited access to rapid tests in the office, so we recommend that you test at a local testing site, or you may use a home testing kit. If the test is negative, the child may return to school on day 6 and wear a mask inside and out for 5 more days. If the child tests positive, they will need to isolate for at least 5 days and then retest. You will receive information about a timeline when testing positive.
  3. Not COVID related: If a child has any other symptoms that are proven non-Covid, they must stay home 2 days. (This does not include students with doctors notes on file)
    1. If a child has a fever, they should wait to return until there is no fever present or the fever is not being controlled by medication like Tylenol or Ibuprofen.
