In Case You Missed It...

Below is the message sent out via Parent Square last week.

Due to the increasingly high temperatures outside, staff will no longer be wearing masks while at car duty.


AM CAR LINE: In the morning, students will still need to wear their masks upon exiting their vehicle.

PM CAR LINE: Starting tomorrow afternoon, students will continue to wear their masks while waiting for their names to be called. After students names are called and they walk to their spots to wait for their vehicle, students now have the option to remove their masks while waiting to get in their vehicle. Please discuss this change with your child and let them know if you would like them to continue to wear their mask at that time. Staff will no longer be monitoring whether or not students are wearing their masks once they are at their spot and waiting for their vehicle.

BUS RIDERS: No changes. Students who ride buses will continue to wear masks while on their bus.

Thank you to our families who donated to the K-Kids Pet Food Drive!
