Masks are Needed!

We have had a very high occurrence every day of children forgetting masks, breaking their masks, losing them at recess, etc. We are running very short of supply. We would greatly appreciate donations of children's masks! If you would like to help out - please select boxes of disposable children's masks. You may drop off at the office or send in with your child. We truly appreciate your help!



Parent Reminder:

We also ask that your child does not come to school or ride the bus without a mask. It has been very helpful for parents to put one or two extras in their child's backpack as well!


Wearing a mask in the classroom and bus consistently is even more important now with the change in quarantine for students. If ALL students and staff in the classroom or on the bus are masked, they would not have to quarantine if a close contact. Please work with your student to understand the importance of masking in the classroom and bus.
