Updates & Reminders

  • If you have not completed the beginning of year online paperwork, please do so ASAP.
  • School begins at 7:50 each day. Any students arriving after 7:50 are tardy and will need to be taken to the office to check-in.
  • All students, staff, and visitors are required to wear a mask while inside at school. This is for the safety of all and to limit the number of quarantines due to exposures. Students can take their masks off inside to eat and can play outside at recess or PE without their masks.
  • Please contact the school nurse or your child’s teacher if your child has been sick, exposed to COVID, or tested positive for COVID.
