Mr. O'Connell's Weekly Updates
Dismissal on June 4th
Please read through the communication from your child's teacher as it will provide links for summer work, annual verification link (to update your information in Infinite Campus), and how to access your child's report card in Infinite Campus. We will not be sending home a copy.
Student devices will be staying at school for the summer...however there are some exceptions to this. 5th graders will be taking their devices for the summer and taking to Middle School in the fall. Students attending KOC or other summer programming, the devices will be taken to those locations. All other devices will be moving over to West Willow and students will be getting them back in the fall.

Newly released last week
Governor Kim Reynolds signed a bill that prohibits any school district from requiring masks to be worn by staff or students. We have discussed on morning announcements that it is a personal choice to wear a mask or not...and we need to be respectful no matter what the choice is. Masks will continue to be worn on school buses as they are public transportation, and that is a national mandate. Additionally, mitigation strategies remain for all school athletics and activities.
