Reminders that will be very helpful for us....

We do not have an unlimited supply of masks this year. Please make sure your child(ren) brings a mask to school each day.

Also, at this time students are not permitted to receive outside lunches or food. Please reserve the meals you purchase outside of the school for dinner until COVID protocols are lifted.

Any birthday treats sent to class must be individually wrapped. If they aren't we cannot allow them at this time.

Mass health screenings have recently been completed. If the cost associated with a vision exam and glasses are beyond your budget constraints, please contact Nurse Stephanie.
