Please conduct the COVID-19 Daily Self-Screen Tool with you child each day.
If your child displays a symptom suggestive of COVID-19 while at school such as: shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, loss of taste or smell, and develops a new or worsening cough, you will be contacted and asked to pick up your child from school.
To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, parents will be assisted in the foyer or via the outside speaker system. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
