Feburary News

Message from Mrs. Riddle

February is a great month filled with lots of kindness and sweet treats! It's a time to look around and find ways to make someone's day, give to others and be grateful for what we have. That's not always easy to do when things are busy. We appreciate each one of you and are thankful for your support. Go Hawks!

Did You Know? from Deputy Long

Deputy Long is keeping things light and bright with this months, Did you know? Did you know all vehicles should display lights any time from a half-hour after sunset to a half-hour before sunrise and at any time when it is raining? This also includes any other time when there is not sufficient visibility to see pedestrians and vehicles on the highway at a distance of 500 feet.

Covid-19 Information

If your student is exhibiting any signs of COVID-19 (cough, nasal congestion or runny nose, sore throat, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, headache, loss of appetite, fatigue, muscle pain or soreness, fever, shortness of breath, or new loss of taste or smell), particularly if they have been exposed to someone who has tested positive, please allow them to stay home and rest until you determine if a doctor's visit is necessary. We long to keep the school open and this can happen if sick students stay home until they feel well. Our wonderful teachers are working so hard to make sure their assignments are accessible in ItsLearning. Students can log in and take care of these when they're feeling up to it.
