REMINDER: Screen Your Child's Health Before School Each Day

Families are required to check their child's health each morning before coming to school on in-person learning days.


Any students determined to be exhibiting symptoms related to COVID-19 will be sent home immediately from school from the satellite health office. Should isolation and/or quarantine protocols need to be enacted, communication will be provided from the school.

Reminder: Facial Coverings/Masks Required

Approved facial coverings/masks continue to be required for all people ages 3+ when indoors, regardless of vaccination status, until further notice.


Please provide additional clean facial coverings/masks for your child. Please send a supply in a sealed, zippered bag in your child's backpack should they need to replace a soiled or damaged mask during the school day.

MAP Growth Testing Next Week

Students in Kindergarten through Grade 5 will be completing MAP Growth assessments the week of August 23rd. For Grades 1 through 5, please be sure your child charges their Chromebook nightly and brings it to school each day. As always, a good night of sleep and a good breakfast help students to be prepared for the MAP Growth assessment and each day of school!


If your child is not able to participate in sessions when they are scheduled, students will complete the MAP Growth assessments when they return to class.
