Valentines Day Parties

If your child's teacher is planning a Valentines celebration, please make sure any donated treats are store bought and individually wrapped. Also, if the class is exchanging Valentines, students will hand sanitize before and after passing them out to other students. If you would prefer your child not open them until they get home, please let your child's teacher know.

Students may wear a school appropriate Valentines shirt/accessories on Friday, 2/12.

Thank you for all you do to help our students stay healthy and in school.
