Important District Covid-19 Reminders

  • Students may only receive items essential to student learning (glasses) from parents during the school day. Items should be placed on the bookcase in the glassed alcove. Please communicate by email with your child's teacher regarding the drop off. The office does not accept items dropped off by parents.
  • Students may bring "treat" to class with them (for Birthdays and special occasions). All items must be pre-packaged and passed out in the original packaging. Work with your classroom teacher for their specific guidelines.
  • We have masks available if a student forgets their mask. However, we are very limited in the amount available. Please ensure that your child has a mask each day (grades 3-6). If you prefer your child in grades Kindergarten-second grade wear a mask at school, it will need to be provided by the parent.


Manatee families!

We are excited to kick off our Walk-A-Palooza on Jan. 26th. Our goal is to raise $20,000 for activity classes and technology and to strengthen our school community.

Our school has always relied on fundraising to provide exceptional opportunities to enhance student learning. And this year, we have more needs than we’ve ever had before, which means we need your support more than ever.

We completely understand if your family is not in a position to financially support the school right now. You can still be involved by simply SHARING about our fundraiser with friends and extended family online at Sharing IS supporting!

Just as we worked to safely begin school this year, we are also safely hosting this essential fundraiser based on our school’s current guidelines. We’ll send more details, as we get closer to our kick off.
