COVID Mitigations and Safety

As you know, over the last few weeks, we have begun working to move back to our pre-COVID classroom and lunchtime seating routines. Doing so requires us to move furniture back into these spaces over the remaining months of the school year. In some cases, a few other schools have begun implementation while others will be utilizing spring break to allow our custodial team to unearth stored furniture and get schools settled.

If you have any concerns with this change, please reach out to me before spring break begins so I can make arrangements for an alternate lunchroom space in which children will remain 6 feet apart until the school year ends.
