Big picture

A Great First Week!

What a wonderful first week! It was SO good to see your students back in-person, full time this past week! Thank you to everyone for following our safety protocols, being patient at drop-off and pick-up as we work through the kinks and learn our new routines, and for supporting our students and staff as we transition into the new school year!


This past week students learn about the procedures and rules in the classroom as well as learning about our PBIS BEAR Necessities and routines around campus. It is easy to see that our students are excited to be back on campus and in the classroom together. We look forward to an exciting year together filled with growth and learning!

Back to School Night was a success as well and our PTA President, Traci Larson, led a lovely first PTA meeting! Please be sure to take a moment to join our PTA if you have not yet.


Go Bears!

Return to School Plan and latest COVID Protocols

On Monday, August 23, the district shared the 2021-2022 Return to School Plan with families via email. This document contains important information related to the mandates and protocols that will allow us to return to school full time and in person this fall. On Tuesday, August 31, information pertaining to COVID related quarantine was shared with families as well.


If your child is absent, you MUST report their absence to our school office via our 24 hour attendance line. Thank you for your support as we continue to navigate this pandemic together!
