Yard flags are here!

If you ordered a yard flag it came home today if your child is in car line. If your child rides the bus please contact the school and schedule a safe way to transport your yard flag home. We cannot wait to see these around town!

Thank you!

Thank you so much! We appreciate all the Clorox wipes and other cleaning materials that parents keep donating to the school. These are so, so helpful!

Going to be gone?

If your child is going to be gone you must inform Mrs. Lane and your child's teacher.
Mrs. Lane will need to ask specifics about your child's absence because of COVID.

Want to learn from home?

The teachers do not have information preloaded into the student's accounts if they are suddenly sick. Items may need to be picked up for them to follow along.

The teachers may not be aware that the child is wanting to learn online on a sick day. Please reach out to the teacher for details about logging in.

Scheduled time away?

We know that from time-to-time that families need to travel for a wedding, funeral, or other obligations. Please contact Mrs. Lane and your child's teacher once details have been confirmed. This gives the teachers and the school time to prepare for your child's absence.
