From the desk of Principal Williams


It is important for us to stay vigilant during the cold/flu season. The protocols for COVID- 19 have not changed. If your student is exhibiting any Covid symptoms your child must stay home for 10days and return only if symptom-free. Or be symptom-free and return with a negative PCR test.

If your student has any symptoms while on campus you will be called to pick up your student immediately.

I know that it can be challenging. It is however necessary to keep all students and staff safe.

We could use your help still with large bags of chips and snacks coming on campus. Students are not allowed to bring these large bags on campus and they are also not allowed to share food at any time.

Lastly, at pick-up time remember that any student who is being picked up and not riding the bus needs to exit through the Green Gate. This is in our site plan and to keep all students safe, and needs to be followed.

With much gratitude,

Mrs. Williams

For families that choose to watch you will need to stay outside the building, wear a mask and also keep your distance from the students and others outside your household.

Students may wear costumes, but must follow the following guidelines;

  • No scary masks
  • No weapons
  • No blood
  • If they have an appropriate mask it may be worn at school during the parade only
