So Thankful for our first week of school!
My deepest thanks to all of our parents, students and staff for making this back to school first week a successful and enjoyable one! The students are getting right back into the routine of school and are working hard to support one another on these incredibly hot days.
Next week we add our Enrichment Classes; Art, Spanish, Music, Technology and PE into the mix along with morning prayer and Mass on Thursdays. As we add in these additional classes, please know we will continue to keep up with our cleaning in between class cohorts as well as practicing distancing while in Mass. Our morning prayer will continue to be broadcasted into the classrooms as we are not able to have the entire student body in the hallway at the same time.
Please do your very best to have your children arrive, on time, for school each morning.
Kindergarten through Sixth Grade: 8:40 am - 3:40 pm
Students may be dropped off no earlier than 8:30am
Seventh and Eighth Grade: 7:25 am - 2:20 pm
Students may be dropped off no earlier than 7:15 am

We still need all parents to screen their child(ren) before they get on the bus or leave for school. Please ensure that your child(ren) do not have a temperature or have any signs of illness, Flu or COVID-19. We are no longer taking temperatures at the door so we need all parents to ensure your children have no symptoms before leaving home.
If your child is home or sent home due to an illness, they must stay home until they are symptom/fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. Any child home due to COVID-19 must follow the Barry/Eaton County Health Departments guidance before returning to school.
Everyone was so wonderful at this last year, it really saved us from having groups of children contracting any illness almost the entire year last year. Thank you for continuing this much needed protocol.
