Picking Up Your Student Early

Sometimes we have appointments or other things that require us to pick up our student earlier in the day. Due to COVID-19 protocol, we have a little different procedure this year.


  • Please call the office when you arrive and let us know who you are picking up.
  • While we have your student gather their things and come to the office, please meet us at the front door where you can sign them out on a clipboard.
  • Please wear your mask.
  • We will not be able to just release them to your car for safety reasons.


Thank you!

From Nurse Grubb's Desk

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!

Attitudes and habits established early are critical in maintaining good oral health throughout life.


Habits to be Mouth Healthy:

- Schedule routine check-ups every six months

- Brush twice each day for two minutes

- Floss daily

- Snack Healthy! Fruit juice, sports drinks, fruit snacks, and sticky candies all pose threats to your teeth

- Eat calcium-rich snacks

- Hydrate with good old-fashioned water. It helps rinse away any sugar or particles that can lead to cavities.

- Replace your toothbrush every three to four months
