Jammies in January

You will be able to go with your child to their classroom to make and take some exciting math games you can then take home and play as a family. There will also be hot chocolate and cookies in the cafeteria. And, don't forget to come in your jammies!

Friendly Reminders

Drop-Off and Pick-up Area

Please, please, please make sure that you are watching the car in front of you and pulling all the way forward when you are dropping off and or picking up your child. Remember, if you need to help your child get out of the car or will take more than a minute for them to get out, use our parking lot or outside lane in the mornings. In the afternoons, please do not get out of your car if you are using the pick-up lanes. A staff member will bring your child to the car for you. We also ask that you do not block any crosswalks or entrances to the parking lot. It is essential that we follow these procedures to keep our lanes flowing and running smoothly. These procedures are also in place to ensure the safety of our students and your children. Thank you for your efforts in helping us with this!

COVID Protocols

The city of Kuna is still in the red category. Based on district protocols, this means any students or staff with COVID symptoms, and no alternate diagnosis, or negative COVID test, should remain home for 10 days.

The next check of categories is January 14th and we will update you if there are any changes made.
