Reminder: Snacks at school

In-person students will receive a small snack (fruit and a grain-based item: goldfish, crackers, granola bar, etc.) each day. Our staff will work to ensure that students are 6ft apart when eating in order to follow the safety guidelines. Due to allergy & safety precautions, students will not be permitted to bring their own snacks from home.

Daily Health Screener

Families of in-person students will still need to complete the daily health screener for each child each day prior to 8:45 am.

For our students who are fortunate enough to speak a second language, ACCESS testing has begun. Our wonderful EL Resource teachers, Mrs. Schaffer & Mrs. Shumaker, will be working with your child over the next few weeks to engage them through this process.
