And We are Off!

The staff were overjoyed to welcome all of our students back this week. The kids loved eating lunch with their friends, playing on the playground, and getting to know their teachers and classmates. We look forward to an incredible year.

Mask Wearing

Families, please take time over the weekend to ensure your students have proper fitting masks that cover their nose and mouth. This will help keep all of our students safe and healthy. Staff will continue to remind students of proper mask wearing guidelines and if masks are not sized appropriately they may be provided a temporary mask to use for the day.
