Important Reminders

  • Be sure to conduct a wellness check at home to ensure all students are free from COVID symptoms before coming to school. Know the Symptoms - CDC (Poster)
  • Students must wait until they hear the 7:40 a.m bell to enter the campus. At that time, students go directly to the classroom. If students are here before 7:40 a.m. they must wait while maintaining distance from others.
  • Please send your kiddos to school with a water bottle. Drinking fountains can only be used to fill bottles. On days when students have P.E. consider bringing two. :)

Thank you!
