She has also prepared a parent newsletter for our community. You are welcome to check it out!

A Note from Nurse Jessica

Please bring a face mask each day. It is a good idea to have an extra in the backpack for days a students might forget to grab one on the way to school. Thank you!

Laptop Covers

Students are permitted to purchase laptop covers to personalize and protect their devices. This is optional, but it is a great way to reduce the potential for damage to the devices.
