This past spring our world experienced something unprecedented with COVID-19. As we continue to respond to the health crisis, we want you to be assured we are doing everything we can to ensure staff and student safety this Fall. The health guidelines complicates what the return to school will look like. However, we'll be ready to teach your children while keeping them safe. Below, find updates regarding what to expect as we return back to school next month:

Families can create an account via Pay School Central website. Your children may qualify for free or reduced price school meals. Students in all grades that qualify for free or reduced price meals will receive breakfast and lunch at no charge. Families with low income may apply for Free Reduced Lunch.
