From the desk of Principal Williams


Thank you to all the families that had conversations with students about being safe, respectful, and kind at school. It is greatly appreciated.

We could use some support from you at home with students bringing large bags of chips to school. There are a few things that are not safe with this one is that this might be all that student eats all day long during every recess and lunch. Some students who bring these large bags are sharing them with others which is not safe with COVID. If a student brings a large bag of chips they will be asked to put it in their backpack. If they continue to bring the large bag of chips they will be confiscated by yard duties or myself and I will call home.

If your student is having difficulties or comes to you with a problem that occurred at school please communicate with their classroom teacher as soon as possible.

Lastly, we have had an uptick with students being tardy to school. School begins at 8:00 am. Please ensure that your student arrives at school on time so that they are a part of their morning routine here. It helps start their day off right. If your student is absent please call the office right away in the morning at 707-890-3945.

With much gratitude,

Mrs. Williams
