Dear Families,

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! We want our students to return safely to school, so please help us by monitoring all symptoms of illness. Keep your students hope if they are ill. The symptoms could include:

  • Cough; difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Severe headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
  • Feeling fevering or having fever greater that 100 degree F.

If someone in your household has Covid (even if waiting for test results) or your child is exhibiting any of the above symptoms, please fill out the self-reporting form below.

If you have questions, feel free to call our campus nurse and she can provide guidance.

As your students return to campus tomorrow please make sure they have a clean mask to wear each day as well as a refillable water bottle so that they can stay hydrated. Thanks for your support to keep our students and staff safe and healthy!
