Message from the Principal

August 27, 2021

We are all so excited to return to school with all of our students on Monday! Teachers are ready to provide in-person learning and have them back in their rooms. You can just feel the excitement to have our students here. We want to have our students in school!

We have put extra precautions into place including spacing desks 3ft. apart, separating lunch into the cafeteria and group room, and seating charts for all classes. Students will need to wear their masks, but teachers are working to incorporate short mask breaks, and they will not be required to wear them during lunch, PE or recess. Students will still need to wear them on the bus.

In order to keep all of our students and staff safe and in school, please keep your child home if they are sick or have symptoms and contact the nurse.

Thank you and have a great weekend! Can't wait to see all of our kiddos!

Mrs. Tidd




Book Cart

Attention parents! The School Book Cart (store) will be back in use when we return. The book cart will visit each grade level one day a week. Items on the cart range from $.25 to no more than $3. The selection changes, however they are usually school related (pencils, erasers, earbuds, trinkets, etc.). We try to keep earbuds on the cart all of the time, and they are $1, so if you student needs them for class here is a cheap/convenient option. Students are allowed to bring money from home. They are also rewarded gift certificates if they are chosen to be their class/grade levels brave of the week. The schedule is as follows-

Each morning from arrival until announcements

Monday- 2nd grade hall

Tuesday-3rd grade hall

Wednesday-4th grade hall

Thursday-5th grade hall

Bus / Pick up Changes

If you need to change your child's bus going home or that they are being picked up, parents MUST speak to a person. DO NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE as the staff member may not hear their messages before the end of the school day.

School Drop Off/Pick up

8:10am - Doors open for student drop off. Parents may drive up to door 19E to drop off. PLEASE DO NOT drop off your student before the doors open. This is a safety concern as staff will not be present until 8:10am.
