Reopening Update


We opened our school this morning to TK-2 students, and we were thrilled to see so many smiling eyes. Thank you all for your patience as we all learn to navigate this new way of schooling with masking, distancing, shorter in-seat times and lots of pick up and drop off changes. Please remember to administer a health check at home and keep your child home if they have ANY COVID symptoms and/or a fever.


We look forward to opening up for grades 3-5 next week on Monday, March 8, 2021.


For drop off and pick up, please remember to pull all the way to the top of the circle before stopping. At pick up time, we will have staff with radios calling for each child. Please remain in your vehicles, and we will ensure your child gets safely to your car. Please have a spot ready on the passenger side. Students can ONLY enter and exit from the passenger side of the vehicle.
