Please make sure that students are bringing a water bottle to school everyday. Our filling stations are open but the drinking fountains are shut off due to COVID regulations. The office/ cafeteria is not capable to provide water for our student body.


Due to the volume of students we have in the building and to not interrupt classrooms during education instruction time, it would be helpful if all communication with your student take place prior to them coming to school.
