A message from Mrs. Lucas

Dear Parents,

This week is Parent Conference Week. We have two minimum days, on Wednesday and Thursday, and a non-student day on Friday. Please plan accordingly to pick up your child on time. When you arrive for your conference, you may walk through the unlocked gate to your child's classroom. Please remember that masks must be worn inside when children are present, regardless of vaccination status. All unvaccinated persons must wear their mask inside at all times.

Student Council is holding our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Please see this flyer for more information. A hard copy of this flyer will be coming home next week with students. We always appreciate this opportunity for our students to demonstrate leadership and compassion by participating in this food drive.

Go Bears!

Attendance and Health Reminders

Just a few friendly reminders regarding health and attendance:

  • If your child is sick or has symptoms of Covid, they should not attend school
  • You must call the school attendance line to report all absences
  • Please leave specific details of your child's symptoms and we'll notify you of their return date
  • Please review the Student Symptom Tree to help guide you with questions regarding Covid symptoms and next steps

Thank you for wearing your mask each time you enter the school office or any school building. We appreciate everyone's diligence in completing the daily "Shared Responsibility" in checking for symptoms and keeping students home when they are ill. Together we'll make it through the year in keeping everyone healthy and well. Being back together in person is so wonderful!
