From the Principal's Desk

I am looking forward to working with you and your children this year! Thank you to everyone for responding to the survey for in person or remote learning. The district continues to work to determine how services will be provided both in the remote learning option and the in-person learning option. More Information will be coming soon.

For those students who are attending in person, a mask will be required, although we understand there may be some special circumstances in which your child may not be able to comply with this requirement due to sensory issues or health reasons. As we prepare for school, I would ask that you work with your child to get them accustomed to wearing a mask. You can find a social story to help your child understand wearing a mask here. Spanish here

If you have questions or concerns please feel free to reach out, I am happy to work with you in any way that I can.
