What To Do If Your Child Is Not Feeling Well

What Do If Your Child Is Not Feeling Well

If your child is ill with symptoms consistent (cough, sore throat, stomach issues, headaches, fatigue, congestion, etc ...) with Covid-19 contact Mr. Crissey and your child's teacher and then the following protocols must be followed:

Students May Return After

10 days have passed since symptoms started, and improvement in overall symptoms, and 24 hours have passed without fever and use of fever-reducing medication.


Provide doctor’s note to campus health room staff stating that symptoms are not COVID-19-related and student can return to school.


Provide a negative COVID-19 test. This MUST be a PCR test not a rapid test.

As an FYI the same holds true for staff members.

Check Outs After 230pm

We need all checkouts to occur before 230pm please. Things become a little hectic after 230pm. This is a relatively common ask across schools. Make sure you bring your license when you check your child out. Thank you!

National Hispanic Heritage Month - Starts September 15

National Hispanic Heritage Month is September 15 through October 15.

While it is important for us to respect and uplift the identities of all of students year-round, we also appreciate heritage months that offer a special opportunity to celebrate—and center—marginalized identities. We are excited to honor this special heritage month with informative videos, discussions, and read alouds with your child!
