From the Principal:

Happy New Year!

We are very excited to welcome back our Collins Cobras tomorrow, Wednesday, January 5th.

It will be a busy spring semester with many activities and lots of learning.

To make sure we stay healthy and on track we ask that you keep in mind all the things that kept us safe as we started this school year. Use the three questions on the image "Can my child go to school today?", utilize the the Roadmap to Remaining Open website, and we strongly encourage our students and staff to wear masks as we start the second semester and monitor the positivity rate in Montgomery County.

Stay safe and healthy,

Shelli LeBlanc
